Mr. Kegeroglou, during the development of his question, pointed out that this is an issue that is not just serious, but intensely emotionally charged.
“It is a matter of honor for PASOK, the Movement for Change, but also for every democratic citizen of this country, to investigate in depth and reveal the whole truth about the circumstances and the culprits of the tragic death of the anti-dictatorship fighter. , MP and Minister, Sifis Valyrakis.
Sifis Valyrakis, whom we said goodbye to with pain on January 24, 2021, was a brave fighter, a consistent democrat and a man of integrity, while he developed a great parliamentary and governmental work, honoring the country and his special homeland, Crete.
From the first days of his death, the Movement for Change demanded the immediate clarification of the case, receiving the affirmative answer of the Minister of Shipping Mr. Plakiotakis, who heads the Coast Guard, which is conducting the preliminary investigation. However, since then, nothing substantial has been done in this direction. “
The KINAL MP continued, mentioning, among other things, the efforts of “Light in the Tunnel” to give answers to the mysterious and suspicious circumstances of the death of this great politician.
“On the contrary, some people rushed to predict that it was an ‘accident’, when not one but two witnesses categorically denied them, pointing in the direction of specific fishermen who allegedly ruled the area, who argued and eventually beat and killed him.” The MP also said in relation to the case, that according to the forensic reports, the injuries of Sifi Valyrakis could not have been caused by his own boat.
In fact, the lawyer of the family of the late Mr. Manolis Fotakis speaks directly about an attempt to “cover up”, despite the plethora of information available, while the show “Light in the Tunnel” by Ms. Nikolouli, as well as many reputable journalists such as “George Papachristos and others have contributed the most in order to shed a lot of light on the case”, he stated characteristically.
Mr. Kegeroglou stressed that “the truth can not wait” and asked the Minister of Justice to do what is humanly possible and institutionally permissible by the Prosecutor General’s Office to speed up the pre-trial investigation, expressing his request for the minutes from the discussion of the question to be sent to the Prosecutor’s Office.
The Minister of Justice, Konstantinos Tsiaras, pledged to contribute actively and within the framework of his responsibilities to the process of clarifying the case of the death of Sifis Valyrakis.
The MOVEMENT OF CHANGE is following very closely the course of the investigations both at the local level of Evia and at the level of the Headquarters of the Corps, in Piraeus and will return (if necessary) immediately with a relevant question to the Minister of Shipping.
According to information from “Tunnel”, the prosecutor who was charged with this case has resigned and has now been charged with a new prosecutor in the region of Evia.
