    "Democracy and freedom of the press are two concepts that are absolutely linked," Athanassakis said in his statement.

    "The degree of freedom of the press constitutes the safest and most essential criterion of how democracy operates; the quality of democracy is reflected in the press - both print and electronic - of each country," Athanassakis continued.

    "I consider it my responsibility to express on behalf of SYN a message of solidarity and support to the daily struggle of journalists everywhere in their efforts to inform, to communicate, to publicise, to disseminate knowledge and for all those elements that make this occupation an organic part at the core of democracy," Alavanos stated in his message.
