EP Schulz threatens Greeks with Armageddon – Can we sue him for “moral damage” & “breach of public office”?
“Without new money, salaries won’t be paid, the health system will stop functioning, the power network and public transport will break down and they won’t be able to import vital goods because nobody can pay” President of European Parliament Martin Schulz warned Greek voters one day before the crucial Referendum on Sunday.
Schulz’s warning targets some 1,500,000 jobless and their families, roughly estimated at least 3.500,000 people, without health insurance, with no money available to buy a ticket fair or pay their electricity bill, who nourish themselves from soup kitchens and charity packages with pasta, rice, canned tomatoes, 1 bottle of oil and maybe a bottle of shampoo. Schulz’s warning targets all these people who already suffer the so-called austerity-depression and anxiety attack for the last five years.
Theoretically if not all Greeks, at least these above mentioned could file a lawsuit against the President of the EP for violating his post’s “neutrality”, “for blatant intervention in internal political and fiscal affairs of a sovereign country” – how much more as the EP is not part for the creditors’ three-institutions – and for “causing moral damage and psychological distress” to at least several million Greek citizens.
Not to mention the fact, that these austerity-ridden Greeks used to pay their taxes and fund the salary of Schulz & Schulz.
I suppose inthe free market, Schulz & Schulz would have been fired for incompetence and for breach of duty and code of conduct in context of his public office.
On Thursday, Schulz told German daily Handelsblatt that the elected Syriza government should be replaced by “technocrat” government until stability is restored.
“We should appoint governments of technocrats,” Martin Schulz told Handelsblatt.
