"Ethics can not be a la carte in Europe, dear Germany. You used legal tricks to avoid paying Greece for the repatriations, emphasised Tsipras in Parliament, Tuesday March 9, 2015 ...In 1990, the legal and political conditions were created for this issue to be solved. But since then, German governments chose silence, legal tricks and delay,” Tsipras said in his speech in Parliament

Greek President of Democracy
"I will stay totally consistent in my traditional view that the requirements of Greece on the issue of
German reparations and the issue of the occupation loan,  is active and legally enforceable."
