EU States let ex-Greek govts 'cheat' with accounts, Prodi

Italy, Germany, France turned blind eye, says former EC head

(ANSA) - Florence, May 6 - Italy, Germany and France turned a blind eye as former Greek governments "cheated" on public accounts while he was European Commission president, Romano Prodi said Wednesday. "And when I tried to stop them," he was shut down by other European countries, added Prodi during a debate with former Italian president Giorgio Napolitano at the European University Institute. Prodi was EC president from 1999 to 2004, in between two terms as Italian premier.
