  • [01] Spectacular opening ceremony for Athens '97 World Athletics Championships

    Athens, 2/8/1997 (ANA)

    In an impressive ceremony at the Panathenian Stadium, President of the Republic Kostis Stephanopoulos last night opened the 6th World Athletics Championships, organized this year in Athens from August 1 to 10.

    In the same stadium that held the first modern Olympic Games in 1896 and in the presence of over 50,000 spectators, athletes and officials from Greece and abroad, including Prime Minister Costas Simitis, International Amateur Athletics Federation (IAAF) president Primo Nebiolo said Athens was welcoming more athletes and countries than ever before in the history of the games.

    A record number of 200 countries are participating in the Athens '97 championships.

    "We feel grateful to all of Greece and its people for what you have offered us through the organization of this amazing event, and for what you have contributed all these years to the history of athletics", Mr. Nebiolo said in his address.

    Sports Under-secretary Andreas Fouras said "Greece embraces all the peoples of the earth, regardless of race, nation, sex and form of government. From this historic corner of the universe, from this ancient stadium, gathered together here today, we are expressing the inveterate claim of peoples on earth for peace and brotherhood".

    In a message read during the event, Prime Minister Costas Simitis said that the games were an opportunity to realize that today's and tomorrow's Greece is a country of great abilities in hosting world athletics events.

    The ceremony continued until late, with composer Vangelis Papathanasiou performing a work commissioned for the event, with the participation of international opera singer Montserrat Caballe and her daughter, Greek traditional and ancient dances, and spectacular fireworks.

    The opening ceremony was viewed by over three billion people throughout the world.

    [02] Addresses

    Athens, 2/8/1997 (ANA)

    Mr. Nebiolo said "Greece is the birthplace of athletics and will always possess a distinguished position in the hearts and thoughts of all sports fans all over the world. Tonight, Greece of the past is uniting with Greece of the future and both of them will show that they can coexist in a spectacular way.

    "Through this thrilling gathering of international athletes and officials, the World Athletics Federation sends a very strong message of hope and understanding from here, a message that all young people, regardless of race, color, generation or country of origin can compete with a friendly disposition and overcome obstacles separating us".

    Mr. Fouras said: "The history of athletics in Greece is not measured by centuries but by millennia."

    "The Greeks held athletics events from ancient times, before the dawn of history, as our mythology shows," he went on to say.

    Mr. Fouras said classic athletics have brightened the history of mankind, adding that "in this place we have remained faithful to the ancient spirit throughout the entire duration of our historic life."

    "Our people are justifiably proud of this. At the same time, however, we are proud of our modern civilization and our achievements. We are proud of our men and women athletes and for the fact that the ancient spirit is present today in the marble stadium," he said.

    "Organizing major sports events constitutes a challenge for all countries, small and big. However, it takes on the nature of a very serious responsibility in this world. Particularly when it concerns classic athletics games, responsibility does not only concern good organization. A greater responsibility is created for us by the duty to remain faithful to the spirit and lofty ideals of classic athletics," he added.

    [03] Simitis message

    Athens, 2/8/1997 (ANA)

    Mr. Simitis, who was present but did not personally deliver his message, said: "All these days, during the athletics games, are special and sacred for all Greeks. This is because the ideals of brotherhood, friendship and noble contest are prevailing over the athletic performance and distinction.

    "The World Athletics Championships is an historical moment for modern sports. All the stars of track and field and the best of classical athletes have gathered here.

    "Our expectations for high performances are justified and a great honor to all those who are watching the games. This makes us especially happy and grateful.

    "At the same time, these championships are a unique opportunity for citizens from around the world to meet in the country of myth and history, in the bright place of optimism and peace.

    "The games are also a great opportunity to realize that today's and tomorrow's Greece is a country of great abilities in hosting world athletics events. It is in this sense of responsibility that we are bidding for the hosting of the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens."

    [04] Athens honors Nebiolo

    Athens, 2/8/1997 (ANA)

    International Amateur Athletics Federation (IAAF) President Primo Nebiolo was presented with the city's Gold Medal of Honor by Mayor Dimitris Avramopoulos yesterday, in a ceremony at the town hall attended by International Olympic Committee (IOC) president Juan Antonio Samaranch.

    [05] Yilmaz expresses belief Greek-Turkish differences will be resolved

    Ankara, 2/8/1997 (ANA)

    Turkish Prime Minister Mesut Yilmaz said yesterday he believes that Turkey and Greece will resolve their differences in the framework of the Madrid communiqui issued on July 8, 1997.

    According to the Turkish Anatolian news agency, Mr. Yilmaz addressed a message to Greek Prime Minister Costas Simitis, who had congratulated him on his assumption of the premiership in Turkey.

    Mr. Yilmaz stressed in his message that he is "very satisfied" with the message of congratulations by his Greek counterpart.

    In the message, Mr. Yilmaz said he "is certain" that Turkey and Greece "can enter a new era of friendship and co-operation in their bilateral relations."

    [06] Fate of peace for Greece rests in the Aegean, minister says

    Athens, 2/8/1997 (ANA)

    Speaking on the island of Symi yesterday during the unveiling of a bust dedicated to the late PASOK minister George Yennimatas, National Defense Minister Akis Tsohatzopoulos said the fate of peace for Greece will be decided in the Aegean. Yennimatas was from this small island in the Dodecanese.

    "All of the Aegean will be respected on the basis of the principles of international law, treaties and agreements. Our borders are non-negotiable and inviolable," he said, addressing neighboring Turkey.

    "It is not possible for the status quo in the Aegean to be questioned and it is in Turkey's interests to admit this," he added.

    Referring to Turkey's accession to the European Union, Mr. Tsohatzopoulos said Greece is not opposed to it, but common support (by Greece and Turkey) for the accession of Cyprus constitutes a precondition.

    Mr. Tsohatzopoulos said the Greek armed forces are powerful and for this reason one can speak of peace, but at the same time "we must send to our neighbors a message of persuasion and not confrontation."

    Speaking of George Yennimatas, he referred to their prolonged co-operation and his contribution to the democratic side and to the love he felt for Symi.

    [07] Greece objects to Turkish request on NATO exercise

    Athens, 2/8/1997 (ANA)

    A NATO multinational exercise, "Dynamic Mix '97", is taking place at the Xiros gulf in eastern Thrace from September 22 to October 5, with a request by Turkey that it be allowed to carry out exercises on its home territory across the island of Samos.

    Following the request, Greece called on NATO's southern flank headquarters at Napoli to reject Turkey's request for air coverage of its naval test invasion, on the grounds of possible complications.

    Greece said that if NATO accepts the request, it would consider the inclusion of Limnos in the exercise, using its powerful radars to monitor the Turkish exercises.

    In that case, however, Turkey will request an exemption of Limnos from the exercises, calling on a NATO directive of 1984 that has created tension between the two countries in the past.

    NATO's decision on the issue is pending.

    The exercise includes five regional exercises in Greece coordinated by the Larissa regional headquarters. The other two southern NATO regional headquarters organizing the exercise are Verona and Izmir.

    [08] Message of sympathy to Israeli president

    Athens, 2/8/1997 (ANA)

    President of the Republic Kostis Stephanopoulos has sent a message of sympathy to his Israeli counterpart Ezer Weizman and to the families of those killed in Wednesday's terrorist attack in Jerusalem.

    [09] October meeting of southeastern European defense ministers proposed

    Sofia, 2/8/1997 (ANA - N. Hios)

    The idea of a meeting between southeastern European defense ministers in Sofia in early October was yesterday presented by Bulgarian Defense Minister Rumen Kentsev during a working meeting with the ambassadors of Greece, Turkey, Italy, Romania, Albania and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM).

    The invitation to such a meeting would be addressed to NATO member-states and southeastern European countries participating in NATO's "Partnership for Peace" initiative. Reports said the ambassadors endorsed the idea for such a meeting and committed them selves to getting back to Bulgarian officials on their countries' position.

    [10] Temporary solution for "Sochol" refugees

    Athens, 2/8/1997 (ANA)

    Public Order Minister George Romeos, in co-operation with jointly competent ministries, yesterday provided a temporary solution to the problem of the 314 illegal immigrants discovered this week aboard a Ukrainian-flagged cargo ship drifting off the island of Andros. A ministry announcement said that the illegal immigrants, including 40 children, were to be transferred by yesterday evening to camp sites at Palea Pendeli, Nea Makri and the Lavrion Refugee Center.

    It added that each application submitted by the mainly Iraqi and Pakistani illegal immigrants to stay in Greece would be examined in accordance with Greek legislation. The Public Order Ministry clarified that it was not considering deporting any of the illegal immigrants.

    The authorities had initially counted about 180 illegal immigrants aboard the "Sochol", but a further search of the ship's holds revealed more.

    The children, aged between four months and 12 years, were found to be in a state of dehydration.

    Two Turkish nationals found on the ship were being questioned yesterday by port authorities on suspicion of being crew members who did not manage to escape with the captain of the vessel.

    The "Sochol" had left Izmir on the Turkish coast and was heading for Italy when it suffered a complete power failure.

    [11] Ship especially bought for transporting illegal immigrants

    Athens, 2/8/1997 (ANA)

    The ship carrying the illegal immigrants was bought by a Turkish national in Istanbul for the sole purpose of transporting illegal immigrants.

    According to port authorities, the ship was bought from a Ukrainian company for US$ 30,000 and docked at Istanbul, where immigrants boarded it over four days under the cover of night.

    The two Turkish nationals being questioned told port authorities that the ship had been supplied with adequate fuel outside Izmir.

    Close to 9 nautical miles off Evia, the captain and most of his crew switched the fuel supply off, told people on board they were going for supplies, and disappeared on a high-speed boat leaving no documents behind.

    The ship went on black-out soon after, and was found adrift by Greek authorities.

    Port authorities are looking for their Greek collaborator, while a representative of the original owners in Odessa said "Sochol" had not been completely paid off.

    [12] Arrests of illegal immigrants

    Athens, 2/8/1997 (ANA)

    Another 164 illegal immigrants were arrested in and around Thessaloniki on Thursday. Of these, 149 are Albanian, while the remainder are Bulgarians, Romanians and Yugoslavs. All are to be deported.

    [13] Gov't decides procedures for evaluator on Florina power project

    Athens, 2/8/1997 (ANA)

    Fire on Greek tugboat north of Alexandria The Greek-flagged tugboat "Macedon" caught fire while towing the cargo ship "Rothney", registered in the Bahamas, from the port of Alexandria in Egypt to the Syros shipyards.

    After fruitless attempts to extinguish the fire, the tugboat's crew abandoned ship, boarding the "Rothney". Although the crew are reported safe, the Merchant Marine Ministry's operations center has asked all ships in the area to go to their assistance. The National Investment Bank for Industrial Development (ETEBA) will undertake the search for an independent evaluator for a proposed Greek-Russian power plant in Florina, the government spokesman said yesterday.

    Mr. Dimitris Reppas said the Inner Cabinet had endorsed a Cabinet proposal that a tender be called for an evaluator to determine the cost of a Public Power Corporation (DEH) plant in Florina.

    The spokesman added that ETEBA would draw up the requirements for the evaluator and issue the call for tenders.

    The procedure will be supervised by a three-member committee including representatives of the Inner Cabinet's secretariat, and the ministries of national economy and development.

    The government places greater importance on following a transparent procedure than on getting an opinion very quickly, but estimated that the evaluator would be given four to six months to come up with an opinion on the cost of the project, the spokesman said.

    DEH would not participate in the committee, to prevent any criticism that the procedure was partial, he said.

    Asked to comment on whether Prime Minister Costas Simitis would look into who was responsible for the delay in deciding on an evaluator, Mr. Reppas said this procedure was foreseen in the interstate agreement that was signed but preliminary procedures had to be completed before reaching this stage.

    The decision to hire an independent evaluator was made following criticism from various quarters about transparency in the issue, the spokesman explained.

    Replying to criticism by the main opposition New Democracy (ND) party, Mr. Reppas said ND showed political inefficiency, lack of strategy and attempts to find a political spectrum to address itself to, which at present was occupied by the government.

    [14] KKE and SYN on power plant

    Athens, 2/8/1997 (ANA)

    Following the decision on the evaluator, the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) issued an announcement criticizing the government for a "tactical maneuver" before "the reactions and unshakable arguments put forth against the scandalous agreement".

    The choice of evaluator, KKE said, "will not change the essence of the scandal, which is not related to the cost only, but also to the privatization of important sectors of DEH".

    Coalition of the Left and Progress (SYN) president Nikos Constantopoulos said the government was doubly responsible, "first, because it does not program its energy policy and DEH's role given the new factors".

    Second, he added, because the government "embroils critical issues of energy policy" into intransparent procedures that "harm public interest in multiple ways".

    Mr. Constantopoulos also proposed that a three-year development plan be implemented for the prefecture of Florina as a whole, with funding from the second Community Support Framework.

    [15] Cabinet approves education reform report

    Athens, 2/8/1997 (ANA)

    Cabinet yesterday approved a report by Education Minister Gerassimos Arsenis on proposed reforms to the education system, according to a statement by government spokesman Dimitris Reppas.

    Mr. Reppas, who said the plan "created the framework for dealing with events over the next decade", drew attention to provisions for all-day kindergartens and primary schools to facilitate working mothers. He also mentioned proposed changes to the system of grading school pupils, as well as the abolition of tertiary entrance examinations.

    [16] Arsenis' press conference

    Athens, 2/8/1997 (ANA)

    At a press conference later, Mr. Arsenis announced the establishment of a unified senior high school, to come into effect this year for pupils beginning first year senior high ("lykeio").

    The minister also announced the creation of 30 new programs at universities that will be open to people of all ages. The programs will begin between November and January. In addition, an Open University will commence operation in autumn.

    [17] Ancient mosaic found near Kavala

    Athens, 2/8/1997 (ANA)

    Archaeological excavations this year at ancient Philippi near Kavala, northern Greece have so far turned up a mosaic representation of a racecourse.

    During the same excavations, archaeologists uncovered mosaic floors with geometrical designs covering 60 square meters. The elaborate floors date back to the 2nd and 3rd century AD and are believed to have been created at a local workshop.

    The mosaic representation of a racecourse features a chariot drawn by four horses and a charioteer. It also depicts an altar on which a sacrifice is being made.

    The excavations at Philippi under Thessaloniki University Professor of Archaeology Stylianos Pelekanidis have been in progress since 1960.

    [18] One dead, six injured in PYRKAL explosion

    Athens, 2/8/1997 (ANA)

    One man died and six others were injured in an explosion yesterday morning at the Gunpowder and Cartridge Company (PYRKAL) in Lavrio, southeast Attica.

    Eight fire-engines rushed to the plant which was later visited by National Defense Minister Akis Tsohatzopoulos.

    The police said later that one person, Vassilis Hatzidimas, 52, had died and six injured in the powerful blast which destroyed the denitrification tower at the plant.

    The injured, one of whom lost a leg in the explosion, are being treated at the General State Hospital in Athens. Eight workers were treated for minor injuries at the Lavrion Medical Center before being discharged.

    According to initial reports, the explosion took place when a substance entering the denitrification unit came into contact with the atmosphere.

    The plant's general director and head of worker safety have been detained at Lavrion police station following allegations of neglect by Lavrion Mayor Stavros Papastavropoulos.

    The mayor said the denitrification unit was the scene of a previous accident on May 5, following which the plant's management allegedly promised but failed to shut down operations.

    A committee of experts is already investigating the cause of the accident.

    [19] Reactions

    Athens, 2/8/1997 (ANA)

    In announcements, the Communist Party of Greece (KKE), the Coalition of the Left and Progress, the Democratic Social Movement (DHKKI), the General Confederation of Workers of Greece and the Building Workers' Syndicate called for sanctions to be imposed on those responsible for the accident, while main opposition New Democracy party leader Costas Karamanlis expressed his grief over the accident.

    Mr. Karamanlis expressed "profound grief" to the family of the killed PYRKAL worker Vassilis Hadzidimas and his solidarity to his injured colleagues.

    KKE said the "new explosion at PYRKAL" is a crime with workers as the victims and the company's administration, the government's anti-popular policy and the supervising ministry as the victimizers. It called on "our country's working class to punish all those who are responsible for the fact that Greece comes first in labor accidents in Europe."

    The Coalition demanded an allocation of responsibilities, adding that no public or private enterprise implements the existing institutional framework "due to the state's failure to exercise substantive controls and impose sanctions for its implementation."

    DHKKI noted the alarming increase in labor accidents in the country and stressed the need for necessary security measures to be taken by employers and control for the implementation of the measures by relevant services.

    GSEE, the General Confederation of Workers of Greece, called on relevant ministries to intervene immediately and substantively for the allocation of responsibilities, the punishment of those responsible and the implementation of measures for labor hygiene and security.

    The Building Workers' Syndicate placed responsibilities for the accident on the government, relevant services and those responsible for PYRKAL, saying that the above "like genuine ruthless employers, are aiming at compressing the enterprise's operational cost, disregarding the serious repercussions such a thing has for the security of working people and inhabitants in the region."

    [20] Olympic Airways seeks new managing director

    Athens, 2/8/1997 (ANA)

    Olympic Airways is seeking a new managing director for a five-year term of office with August 29 set as the deadline for applications, the Transport and Communications ministry announced yesterday.

    The ministry said in a statement pay would be commensurate with experience.

    Transport and Communications Minister Haris Kastanidis said recently that managing directors would be sought in the autumn for other public utilities it supervises, and for the national carrier's subsidiaries.

    Advertising senior managerial positions in state firms is an innovation for Greece launched by Prime Minister Costas Simitis' socialist government.

    Formerly the positions were held by government appointees.

    [22] Northern Greek merchants call for tax overhaul

    Athens, 2/8/1997 (ANA)

    Merchants in the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki yesterday called on the socialist government to overhaul the country's unwieldy tax system and review penalties imposed for violations.

    The Thessaloniki Commerce Association (TCA) was responding to media reports that claimed the finance ministry was ready to impose tougher fines and penalties for violations, infringements and inaccuracies, regardless of whether they were deliberate or made in ignorance.

    "Many firms are unable to meet extremely high fines and have to cease work. It's time to tackle taxation and impossible fines with realism," TCA said in a statement sent to the finance ministry.

    The merchants also complained that the tax scale had yet to be index-linked to inflation.

    [23] Northern Greek water utility staff fear bourse entry

    Athens, 2/8/1997 (ANA)

    Workers at Thessaloniki's water board have called on the government to keep the utility out of the Greek bourse as part of its long-term plan to part-float state enterprises.

    The Thessaloniki Water Supply Board's union made the statement responding to reports the utility, which has been given SA status, was a candidate for listing. "The authorities should realize that water is a product fundamental to life and cannot be come the object of exploitation and profiteering by the privileged," a union statement said.

    A failure to comply would mean protests by workers at the second city's utility, it added.

    The union said its members had backed conversion of the organization into an SA company to modernize operations. The move had improved services and cut out exploitation by contractors.

    Workers had supported the plan on condition that the utility remained wholly owned by the state.

    "This is a term contained in the utility's new statutes, and is stated explicitly," the statement said.

    [24] Amendments to "Peponis" law tabled

    Athens, 2/8/1997 (ANA)

    Amendments to the law on recruitment to the public sector (known as the "Peponis" law, after the minister who drafted it) were tabled in Parliament yesterday by Public Administration and Interior Minister Alekos Papadopoulos.

    The amendments include the recruitment of seasonal staff as well as promotion for civil servants on the basis of examinations.

    The Minister said the amendments aim at supporting meritocracy, objectivity and transparency as well as "removing the last remaining loopholes" in the law.

    [25] Greece sends aid to Albanian police

    Athens, 2/8/1997 (ANA)

    As part of its efforts to help restructure the Albanian police, Greece's Public Order Ministry yesterday delivered equipment to the police in Gjirokaster, southern Albania, to facilitate the re-opening of the Albanian checkpoint on the border with Greece.

    The equipment included glass panes for the border post building, new furniture, hotel equipment for the police station and sanitary articles.

    [26] Black list of farming sector companies engaged in illegal activities

    Athens, 2/8/1997 (ANA)

A presidential decree has already been signed by Agriculture Minister Stefanos Tzoumakas and will be given for endorsement by related ministries in the framework of European Union regulations.

    The move follows the revelation of cases of infringements of EU regulations in the past, as well as many cases of fraud which have resulted in the illegal collection of large amounts of money.

    There are about 5,000 farming sector-related companies operating under the agriculture ministry. According to reports, there are at least 400 firms at the moment with pending court cases.
