Greece should not hound man who refused to falsify the figures - Financial Times

"...He and his Greek staff, helped by international experts, cleaned up the statistical Augean stable. The corrected numbers, which showed a much bleaker picture than the earlier data, were vetted by Eurostat and accepted by the European Central Bank, the EU and the IMF as the basis for major financing. One would have thought that Mr Georgiou would have received praise and high honours. But the opposite was the case, conveniently so for those politicians who wish to evade responsibility for the earlier debacle and undermine the independence of the Greek statistical office. In a terrible irony, Mr Georgiou is the one accused of bringing harm to Greece and dereliction of duty by refusing to falsify the figures.

The letter is signed by : Ulrich Baumgartner, Eduard Brau, Warren Coats, K. Burke Dillon, John Hicklin, John Karlik, Linda M. Koenig, Emmanuel van der Mensbgrugghe, Jon Shields, Onno Wijnholds
