  • [01] PM briefed by Justice Minister

    Prime Minster Costas Karamanlis was briefed on Tuesday by Justice Minister Nikolaos Dendias at the Maximos Mansion (government headquarters).

    Dendias informed the premier on ministry matters, and on his plans regarding the major issue of the accelaration of the system of attribution of justice, stressing to reporters afterwards that he intends to carry on with his predecessors' efforts more intensively.

    Responding to a press question on speculation that criminal actions, such as recent abductions of high profile businessmen, are being coordinated from the inside jails, the Justice Minister said: " I cannot reply based on rumors or speculation. I am certain that the investigative authorities will do their job and will solve the case, just as they have done in the past".
