  • [01] Vovos to appeal decision to temporarily suspend works at Votanikos

    The Babis Vovos-International Engineering firm on Tuesday announced that it would appeal against a decision taken by a three-justice Council of State (CoS) tribunal on Monday issue a temporary suspension of construction of a large commercial development project (shopping mall etc.) in the rundown Votanikos district in central Athens, the area where Panathinaikos FC and affiliated amateur clubs are set to build a new sports complex.

    The entire endeavour is called the twin regeneration project, and entails the establishment of green spaces, mostly, at the site of the current Panathinaikos field on Alexandras Avenue.

    Some 131 people, most non-Votanikos residents, filed suit calling for the project's cancellation.

    The listed company said it would appeal for a revocation of the decision, since there was clear evidence, as it said, of public interest to proceed with the project and underlined the increased socio-economic consequences of suspending the works in progress.

    [02] Russia hails Greek OSCE priorities

    In the wake of a meeting between Greek Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in Moscow on Wednesday, the Russian foreign ministry issued an announcement saying that "Russia hails the priorities of the Greek presidency of the OSCE in 2009."

    "The Russian side evaluated positively the priorities stated by Greece for the OSCE's activity in 2009 and hailed the intention of the Greek presidency to organise a special ministerial meeting to continue discussion on the security problems in the Euro-Atlantic region and ways of resolving them," the announcement adds.

    It additionally stressed the prospects of a discussion in the OSCE of a proposal by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev for talks on revising Europe's 'security structure'.

    Other issues stressed by the Russian side were the continuation of talks on restructuring the OSCE and the need to take into account the new "legal-political realities" in the Caucasus region when discussing the OSCE missions to Georgia and breakaway South Ossetia.

    The discussion also covered the Middle East problem and the peace process, while both sides expressed satisfaction with the strong growth of bilateral cooperation.
