The head of the National Intelligence Service (EYP), Theodoros Dravillas, is to face Parliament’s ethics committee on Thursday to be questioned by lawmakers about the agency’s operations following reports suggesting that officials of the main leftist opposition SYRIZA were being wiretapped.

In view of the fact that EYP’s operations are strictly confidential, the contents of the proceedings will not be made public and the ethics committee members are forbidden from discussing them, even after they cease to be lawmakers.
