Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras administration plans to speed disciplinary procedures against 4,000 civil servants being investigated for a range of misdemeanors and crimes and finish the work by early next year, with the likelihood many will be fired if they are found to have broken their oaths, the newspaper Kathimerini reported.
According to sources at the Administrative Development Ministry, the process of identifying alleged miscreants will be accelerated alongside the evaluation of some 450,000 public workers as the government is being pressed to cut the workforce by 150,000 over the next three years as part of continued austerity measures demanded by international lenders.
Administrative Reform Minister Antonis Manitakis told Parliament that there must be an end to years of impunity so that worthy and competent civil servants are protected. The minister accused independent corruption watchdog Leandros Rakintzis of foot-dragging on 1,900 cases since 2007.
According to official figures, 1,550 cases are pending at the disciplinary councils and another 450 at appeal level. Manitakis clashed with Nikos Voutsis, a leftist opposition SYRIZA MP, who condemned a recent rash of media reports regarding the workers as government-guided propaganda aimed at tarring all employees with the same brush ahead of layoffs.
Manitakis said Voutsis was pouring oil onto the fire by speaking of a pogrom, a term which refers to organized massacres. SYRIZA doesnt want any workers fired even if they faked their resumes, lied about their backgrounds, dont show up to work, are disciplinary problems, are insubordinate or have committed felonies and serious crimes. Samaras is the first premier to go after allegedly crooked civil servants.
