The wiretapping needs to be resolved by those who are, in legal terms, in charge. If necessary, a parliamentary committee should also be set up to investigate this issue but this depends on the presence of all political parties in parliament, said Johannes Hahn, Commissioner for Neighborhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, in his Sunday interview with Radio Free Europe.

“Well, this is something very serious, and once again, my recommendation is that things are clarified and investigated by those people who are in legal terms, in charge for such a procedure. If necessary, there should also be, as in many countries, a political assessment committee in the parliament to investigate this issue, but this depends that all parties are in Parliament. This is another good reason why it makes sense that political parties are in parliament and the debate takes place in the parliament.

“I think this is a must, it’s part of the maturity of democracy to have a dialogue and open channels for discussion. Of course, nobody demands that everybody agree on everything, but, once again, in a developed democracy there must be a culture of finding compromises,” Commissioner Hahn said.
