"Once again, for the second time during the last year, the public opinion is watching with surprise the Deputy Minister of Sports Stavros Kontonis stating and acting irrationally, creating an unbelievable international crisis which is threatening the existence of greek football in international level.
FIFA made clear to him that the decision of Greek Cup's interruption after riots in PAOK-Olympiakos clash was not acceptable, while he responded with some statements of no meaning about fight against violence and social peace, proving that he is unaware of international associations' methods .
Later, he asked for the replacement of Hellenic Football Federation and Referees Committee's administrations in order to take back his decision, proving again that he is not really interested in social peace but only for sabotaging us and take complete control of greek football.
FIFA and UEFA officials explained him that this involvement in football's inside is unacceptable and will be punished excessively, but once again he rejected their alternative proposals about the Greek Cup without even explaining the reasons for that.
The Deputy Minister is trying to accuse people and make them guilty before courts' decisions about them, while he is the one to be blamed for the possible expel of our football from all international competitions.
He is the one that should take action against this negative situation and stop violating the authorities, since his power is clearly described by the greek laws and he has no right of interfering with football's self-administration", were the main points of HFF's announcement.
