The Greek government and the Parliament have ratified legislation for cooperation with the International Criminal Court at The Hague, Foreign Minister George Papandreou on Thursday said, when asked questions concerning evidence Greece will send to the court in relation with the war crimes in former Yugoslavia.
Papandreou noted that the evidence requested by the court has been collected and will be sent to The Hague, making it clear that it is not up to the Greek government to evaluate if that evidence constitutes criminal actions.
Earlier in the day, foreign ministry spokesman Panagiotis Beglitis said that the justice ministry has forwarded to the foreign ministry a huge file with evidence regarding transaction of certain bank accounts.
He added that the file would be sent to the court via diplomatic channels.
On his part, government spokesman Christos Protopapas said that Greece collected the evidence based on specific questions posed by the prosecutor of the court and Greece answered on those questions.
