According to media reports, the information leaks from the Department of the Interior (EDI) during the pandemic are becoming an issue in Parliament. The business audit commissions (GPK) want to decide on their course of action next week. However, you have limits.
respect separation of powers
Because the supervisory commissions would have to respect the ongoing proceedings of special investigator Peter Marti and the separation of powers, said Prisca Birrer-Heimo (SP / LU), President of the National Council GPK, on Monday at the request of the Keystone-SDA news agency.
Against this background, the GPK had to answer the question of hearing the Federal President and Health Minister Alain Berset (50) and other people involved in the information leaks, said Birrer-Heimo on the corresponding demands. “First the judiciary has to do its job.”
GPK already on leaks
Media reports are a topic nonetheless. In their meetings next week, the two GPK wanted to explore which aspects of the case could be examined with regard to the separation of powers and the ongoing proceedings, said Birrer-Heimo.
The GPK are currently dealing with indiscretions anyway. The two commissions included leaks from meetings of the Federal Council in their testing program in 2022. Hearings have already taken place, said Birrer-Heimo. But the work still goes on.
“Switzerland at the weekend” reported on Saturday that Berset’s former head of communications, Peter Lauener, had repeatedly sent confidential information about the Federal Council’s planned Covid measures to the Ringier publishing house, which also publishes Blick. According to the newspaper, it relied on emails and interrogation protocols that were available to the editors.
Berset commented on the report on radio RTS in western Switzerland and spoke of “illegal indiscretions”, which he did not want to comment on. You have to let the judiciary continue to work. (SDA)
