In fact, the report notes, the eavesdropping continued well into 2007 but because of this, the network was easily identified by Greek intelligence authorities. The same report in RealNews then reveals that EYP began monitoring the spies and discovered that the specific network, or the Greek Americans, were in constant communication with the head of the American secret service in Maryland, and would regularly ask their superiors what type of action to take next.
The author then states that all this evidence, and more, is now in the hands of Supreme Court magistrate Dimitris Foucas who is investigating the case, from an unknown witness who apparently played a pivotal role (or anti-monitoring) in the wire-tapping case against Costas Karamanlis. This same witness more or less photographed one American, who he claims held a key post in this eavesdropping network. The newspaper notes that the witness told Foucas that this mystery man (spy) commonly travelled to and from our country between the periods 1997-2010, or during periods when profound issues such as the South Stream pipeline project, which was a top priority issue for the Americans, were being negotiated by the then government. Apparently the witness told Foucas that the Americans were not very happy about a possible Greek-Russian energy pact and that is the main reason they wanted first hand knowledge about the course of negotiations.
The witness also claims that the mystery man had diplomatic status, but it was later discovered (by judicial authorities) that he was nothing more than a spy. And what is worse, the newspaper also says that this mystery man is also linked with the assassination plot against Costas Karamanlis.
The author of the article then claims that the only thing left for authorities to do right now is confirm his identity (photographs, documents) and an arrest warrant will be issued.
(It should be reminded that Foukas was the one had requested that these three cases be merged into one -wire-tapping, December 2008 riots, and assassination plot against Karamanlis - or Pythia1 plan-).
