    02/09/2002 16:43:25

    Greek stocks came under pressure on the first trading session of the week on Monday reflecting a negative climate in international bourses, in the Athens Stock Exchange.

    The general index fell 1.39 percent to 2,099.59 points, extending its decline for the fourth consecutive session.

    Blue chip stocks were badly hit, with Alpha Bank falling 2.98 percent, Hellenic Telecommunications Organisation off 2.21 percent, Cosmote down 2.18 percent and Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling off 3.63 percent.

    Turnover was a low 70.6 million euros.

    The Textile, Food-Beverage and Wholesale sectors were the only ones to end higher (0.57 percent, 0.28 percent and 0.23 percent, respectively), while the Insurance (2.34 percent), Telecommunications (2.0 percent) and IT Solutions (1.91 percent) sectors suffered the heaviest percentage losses of the day.

    The FTSE/ASE 20 index for blue chip and heavy traded stocks fell 1.52 percent, the FTSE/ASE MID 40 index eased 0.68 percent, while the FTSE/ASE SmallCap 80 index dropped 1.04 percent.

    [03] N17 suspect Savvas Xiros leaves hospital for prison

    02/09/2002 15:17:16

    The man whose capture following a botched bomb attempt in late June initiated the unprecedented investigation into the notorious ?November 17? terrorist group, with up to 15 suspects arrested so far, was transferred on Monday from his hospital room to a maximum-security cellblock at an Athens-area prison.

    Sometime church mural painter Savvas Xiros, 42, passed through the gates of Korydallos prison just after noon, appearing slimmer than photographs depicted him in the past, slightly limping and wearing special prescription glasses.

    He sustained serious eye injuries and almost lost part of his right hand when a makeshift explosive device went off at the port of Piraeus on the evening of June 29. That incident and his subsequent statements to investigating magistrates resulted in a massive multi-felony indictment against him.

    According to reports, Savvas Xiros may be placed in a one-person cell in the same bloc as his two brothers, Christodoulos and Vassilis, both of whom have also been charged as members of the lethal urban terrorist group.
