Opposition party leader Nikos Androulakis on Thursday accused the government of masterminding a “conspiracy” against him, in reference to the revelation that the country’s national intelligence agency bugged his mobile phone up until he was elected as the president of the PASOK-KINAL group.

Androulakis, an elected European Parliament deputy (MEP), spoke to members of his socialist party’s parliamentary group in Athens, where, among others, he emphasized that “…it’s incomprehensible that I am fighting for national interests and the government has masterminded such as conspiracy. I feel deeply hurt… By listening in on my phone they also eavesdropped on you. They’ve recorded a large portion of our political personnel,” he charged.

Androulakis said the order to bug his phone came during the campaign for PASOK’s presidency and ended with his election.

Moreover, he demanded that Greek PM Kyriakos Mitsotakis publicly disclose the reason why the intelligence service listened in on his mobile conversations, a day ahead a Parliament debate on the matter.
