Main opposition New Democracy (ND) MPs on Friday tabled a question in Parliament on the prime minister’s participation in the “Gaddafi International Charity and Development Foundation (GICDF)”, which is chaired by Seif al-Islam Gaddafi, the son of Muammar Gaddafi.

The question, signed by two ND MPs, was addressed to the foreign minister.

The ND deputies charged that PM George Papandreou was a member of the foundation since June 2009 and did not resign soon after he took office but only after the Libyan uprising broke out.

They underlined that “this fact has a negative impact on the premier’s and the country’s image internationally. Equally negative was the participation of former Tunisian President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali in the Socialist International (SI) chaired by the Greek premier.”
