    GENOA (ANA - L. Hatzikyriakos) - Two Greek nationals were arrested on Genoa for resisting the instructions of authority and were held in custody one since Friday and the other since Saturday.

    The two men were arrested by the Genoa police force during protests against the G8 conference.

    Peroulis Sakelaridis, 35, was arrested on charges of resisting the local authorities and causing damages to property. He was temporarily jailed in Pavia.

    Panagiotis Sideriadis, 24 or 25 years of age was arrested and held in a local hospital, without having suffered injuries, on charges of resisting the orders of the authorities

    [02] Greek port authority charged with guarding the southeastern EU borders

    22/07/2001 23:09:15

    Greek port authority boats will from now on carry the flag of the European Union in addition to the Greek flag, as the Greek port authority was charged with guarding the southeastern Union borders, Merchant Marine Minister Christos Papoutsis announced on Sunday.

    The minister made the statement during a ceremony inducting a confiscated boat to the service of the port authority of Tinos, central Aegean.

    The yacht was confiscated, as it was used to smuggle illegal migrants into Greece, and was the first such boat to enter service with the coast guard, following the ratification of a relevant bill by Parliament recently.

    The new law mandates that all vehicles and modes of transport that are confiscated by the port authority for being involved in illegal activities, will enter service in the branches of the port authority.

    The minister noted that several other boats would soon enter service as well.

    [03] ND leader outlines party political program to businessmen

    22/07/2001 23:09:09

    Main opposition New Democracy (ND) leader Costas Karamanlis on Saturday called on regional societies and their representatives to be active, saying that he aimed at forming a wide societal majority to deal with the priority problems of the country.

    ND wants to "establish channels of communication, cooperation and trust, during the little time that it will remain as the country's main opposition," Karamanlis said, during his address to the Argos, Peloponnese, Chamber of Commerce.

    He stressed that his party will win the electoral majority, but noted that "the great policies and radical changes need very wide consent and societal majorities", that should include even those that will not vote for his party in the next elections.

    Karamanlis stressed that ND believes in private enterprise and the role of the private sector, underlining that his party aims at a society with greater cohesion and participation "in the obligations, in the actions, as well as in the distribution of the fruits of development, since we can not continually say to the workers or to the unemployed to tighten their belt and call for austerity".
