    The Tuesday edition of Athens' dailies at a glance

    An IOC (International Olympic Committee) announcement on the case of 2004 Olympics 400m hurdles gold medalist Fani Chalkia (who was expelled from the Beijing 2008 Games after testing positive for the prohibited substance methyltrienolone-M3) that also noted that 12 more Greek athletes had tested positive for the substance, the performances of the Greek athletes at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games and the developments in Georgia were the main front-page items in Tuesday's dailies.

    ADESMEFTOS TYPOS: "Immigrant Reception Centers (establishment of more such centers) announced by Pavlopoulos (interior minister) after Monday's meeting with the prime minister (Costas Karamanlis) on illegal immigration".

    APOGEVMATINI: "Doping a nightmare - Greeks upset by the continuous revelations of doping among athletes and the humiliation of Greek sports - Chalkia's B sample also positive (for M3)", adding that culture minister Michalis Liapis and his deputy minister for sports Yannis Ioannidis had drafted a preliminary draft law, which they passed out to all the political parties and authoritative bodies for discussion, but due to preparations for the Olympic Games in Beijing, they were pressured into postponing its discussion until after the 2008 Games, while the recent doping incidents have brought the issue of the bill back into the spotlight.

    AVGHI: "US demands anti-Russian front - Conflicting information on the withdrawal of Russian forces from Georgia", adding that the NATO foreign ministers were holding an emergency meeting in Brussels on Tuesday to discuss the crisis in Georgia, with Washington exercising asphyxiating pressure to overcome France's and Germany's moderate stance vis-a-vis Russia.

    AVRIANI: "The first opinion polls in September will decide when general elections will be held (as scheduled, or early elections) - Government and political parties on alert".

    CHORA: "Russia and US in a 'Cold War' tunnel - Tough response by Moscow on the anti-missile umbrella", prompted by the scheduled signing in Poland on Wednesday of an agreement for deployment of part of the US-advanced global missile defense shield, with Russian President Medvedev warning of a crushing response to whoever threatens Russian citizens.

    ELEFTHERI ORA: "The Bear (Russia) proceeding with slow steps - They are withdrawing (from South Ossetia) without haste".

    ELEFTHEROS TYPOS: "At the mercy of dope - Unbelievable admission of guilt by the SEGAS (Hellenic Association of Amateur Athletics) president (Vassilis Sevastis), as the IOC sends us before the...firing squad", adding that the IOC was calling for the 'decapitation' of George Panagiotopoulos (Chalkia's personal coach and the coach of sprinter Tassos Goussis, who was disqualified before the Beijing Games after also testing positive for M3 during the Greek Olympic track team's preparations in Japan ahead of the Games), and noting that the IOC did not 'forget' Panagiotopoulos in the announcement it issued on the Chalkia doping case, in which he is mentioned three times.

    ELEFTHEROTYPIA: "The Pavlidis case (former merchant marine minister Aristotelis Pavlidis, whose name has been implicated in a kickback case involving an eminent shipowner) an unbearable weight for Karamanlis - New evidence sees the light every day".

    ESTIA: "State expenditures inflating - The big problem of the Greek economy".

    ETHNOS: "Base university entrance grade points jump in the 'good' (mostly sought-after) Schools - The results to be announced next week".

    KATHIMERINI: "Threat of new 'supervision' - EU auditors coming to confirm the deficit".

    RIZOSPASTIS: "Scandalous subsidies to shipowners by governments of ND and PASOK - Stench in Greek maritime".

    TA NEA: "Cover-up, on orders of Maximos Mansion (government headquarters - Justice minister declares Pavlidis innocent".

    TO VIMA: "Rage over the Greek 'gold medal' in doping", adding that the revelation of doping cases in several sports 'intimates at the existence of a ring that promotes anabolic steroids', according to the IOC, which urged action by the Greek authorities and government, while Greece's National Olympic Committee chief Minos Kyriakou calls for life-long exclusion of all those who humiliate the country's name and the punishment of all individuals involved.

    VRADYNI: "500 million euros in subsidies for SMEs (small and medium size enterprises) - New programs to boost entrepreneurship".
