Justice Minister Miltiades Papaioannou on Thursday notified Council of State and Supreme Disciplinary Council president Panagiotis Pikramenos of the disciplinary action pending against Court of Audit vice-president Nikos Angelaras who is accused of unjustified delays in exercising his duties and unbecoming behavior.
Delays in Court of Audit rulings attributed to the specific official have allegedly contributed to the problem of textbook shortages in schools nationwide.   
According to the justice minister, the decision for disciplinary action was based on evidence that came to his attention and added that it is up to the Supreme Disciplinary Council to rule on the case. 
On his part, Angelaras underlined that there was no delay in the issuing of Court of Audit rulings and that responsible for the textbook shortage problem is an illegal tender and the negligence of the ministry of education.
