  • [01] Gov't seeks to make up lost ground on renewable energy

    Development Minister Dimitris Sioufas said on Saturday that the government had set a priority on spurring renewable energy in a bid to take the lagging sector forward.

    "Greece is very behind, and the development ministry is taking immediate initiatives to try to cover lost ground," Sioufas said during a visit to Lamia to inaugurate a small hydroelectric plant.

    "The government's central aim is investments that create permanent jobs. One hundred and four investments have been rapidly advanced for output powered by renewable energy," the minister noted.

    [02] Supermarkets deny forming price-rigging cartel

    The SESME supermarket trade group on Saturday denied forming a price-rigging cartel.

    A day earlier, the competition commission charged SESME and seven of its members with joining forces to concert pricing in 2001. A fine will be imposed in the near future.

    The commission named the offenders as Athens-quoted Atlantik, Veropoulos, Masoutis, Metro, Sklavenitis, Trofino and Athens-listed AB Vassilopoulos.

    SESME said in a statement that the commission's decision failed to take into account evidence supplied by the trade group that no wrongdoing had been committed.

    It also complained that the commission had announced its decision in a press release, without first informing the parties involved.

    [03] No US position on Jerusalem Patriarchate

    WASHINGTON - The US government has not taken a stand on a dispute centering on the Greek Patriarchate in Jerusalem, which has been accused of selling church property to Israelis.

    "I realize the events (in the dispute) are going on, but we don't have a position on the Greek Patriarchate in Jerusalem. That's our position. Our position is we don't have a position," state department spokesman Richard Boucher told reporters in reply to a question.
