The meeting’s outcome led to the start of the site reconfiguration on March 4, which continued until March 6, 2023. The official reason given was to facilitate the immediate resumption of train services, although services did not actually restart until nearly a month later on March 29. Police reporter Vassilis Lambropoulos presented this new information, speaking to MEGA.

Notably, Agorastos did not mention this meeting in his memorandum, and Triandopoulos failed to disclose it during parliamentary discussions. MEGA reports that attempts to contact Triandopoulos and Agorastos for comments went unanswered. However, officials from the Fire Department and ELAS confirmed the meeting’s occurrence.

Last week, the criminal case file concerning the Tempe railway accident and the cover-up of the site was forwarded to the Parliament.
