  • [01] Group claims attack on police station

    A hitherto unknown urban terror cell called "revolutionaries sect" (secta epanastaton) claimed responsibility for the shooting and grenade attack on a police precinct in the working-class Piraeus district of Korydallos early Tuesday morning.

    According to an announcement by police on Wednesday, a CD was found that contained the terror group's voluminous proclamation claiming responsibility for the attack, following a telephone call made to an Athens daily.

    No injuries were reported during the incident.

    [02] Gov't actions within EU norms

    Agricultural Development and Foods Minister Sotiris Hatzigakis said on Wednesday, following his meeting with Agriculture Commissioner Mariann Fischer Boel in Brussels, that all the government's actions, regarding farmers, lay within the framework of European Union regulations and that money provided is compensation "due to bad weather conditions that will be given in accordance with the regulation of the ELGA fund, that the EU has approved."

    The minister further said that "the Greek farmers will be paid normally and as soon as possible."

    Hatzigakis stressed that he had constructive cooperation with the Danish Commissioner, whom he briefed analytically on the real amount of damage caused to Greece's agricultural production in 2008.

    "For reasons of full transparency, the government will continue to cooperate closely with the Commission, giving more information," the minister said and added that he and Boel also discussed issues preoccupying the Greek farming sector in general.

    Commission representative Michael Mann said that the meeting between the minister and the Commissioner was "constructive."

    Mann said that "today, the Commission received detailed information from the Greek minister on the support package for Greek farmers" and stressed that "the Commission is expecting supplementary data from the Greek authorities, that it will be examining and will be deciding on the type of the subsidies."

    Lastly, Mann said that Commissioner Boel informed the Greek minister of the Commission's intention to send a group of experts to Greece on Febrary 23 that "will examine the workability of Greece''s integrated agricultural controls system."
