More and more serious cases of corruption at the highest level are being exposed throughout Europe.
Things like the "Gorilla" scandal in Slovakia, the ongoing corruption scandals in Greece, Banking scandals involving the highest politicians in various countries, the current bribery scandal Hungary, the banking scandal in Ireland, etc. etc.

Further more, Yiannis Stournaras, current minister for Finance admitted in Parliament that 32 current and former politicians are indeed under investigation by the Financial Fraud Police. In order to keep the pressure on, another Dialy, Proto Thema, published the names of those 32. Ekathimerini adds to the pressure by revealing that 7 of the 32 being investigated are 4 former PASOK ministers and 3 former ND Ministers.
It would seem that somebody is intending on a big clean up and is putting this in the lime light to avoid a repeat of the "Siemens scandal investigation" which was simply closed by political order, without charges of prosecutions
