Mitsotakis: The guilty will be punished, justice will shed light on the case

Only Justice will shed light on the case, the Prime Minister said in his message on the one-year anniversary of the tragedy in Tempe.

"One year after the tragedy of Tempi, the wounds from the loss of the victims remain fresh, with their families still facing their own difficult and uphill Calvary. It is true that time froze, at that moment, when the country collided with its worst self. It went off the rails, buckling under the weight of a hidden reality," Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Wednesday, in his statement about the anniversary of the Tempi train crash.

"On a day like this, sadness cannot be painted with political party colors. And respect for suffering requires maturity and prudence. In overcoming this national trauma, time will not be an ally. It may, however, offer some relief when all the causes of the evil are brought to light. When all doubts are dispelled. When even the most absurd rumours are disproved. And, above all, when the guilty are punished. And that will happen," the prime minister stressed.

"Parliament examined dozens of witnesses with hundreds of pieces of evidence, investigating how human error met fatally with the age-long shortcomings of the state. But it also does not cease to be a political institution. That is why only Justice is the one that will shed light on the case, as we all want. It is already moving quickly and to the highest degree, calling the first of those to account. I have complete confidence in Justice and I am sure it will rise to the occasion," he stated.

"We welcome, therefore, the sad anniversary, bowing our heads in memory of the 57 innocents lost and the ordeal of the wounded. Thinking of the families, who have every right to make their pain a protest. However, first the government and the political system we must discern behind the tragedy a collective failure. To find the illnesses and heal them, not divided, but united.

"Our mission is to turn pain into action. So that the organisations that serve the citizen operate safely, consistently and professionally. The State should not remain a prisoner of bureaucracy, which delays critical projects. And the courts must decide in a timely manner, especially for cases that concern society.

"As prime minister, as a citizen, but also as a father, I participate in the mourning of the homeland. And I repeat the commitment that the country will continue on the path of constant vigilance and progress. Changing the state and improving everyday life. Without compromises," the prime minister concluded in his statement.
