  • [01] Four new flu virrus A(H1N1) cases in Greece

    Four new cases of the new flu virus A(H1N1) were detected in Greece on Friday among foreign nationals arriving from the US.

    The cases concern a 33-year-old Italian woman, an 18-year-old American woman, a 46-year-old American man, all three of whom arrived in Greece from Kansas, and a 15-year-old American girl who arrived from Washington, a health ministry announcement said.

    All four patients were under medical observation.

    [02] Lecture on Acropolis Museum

    The Alliance Francaise in Bern, Switzerland, organised a lecture on the theme of "The New Acropolis Museum - An opportunity for the return of the Parthenon Marbles to Greece?", in the presence of a large Swiss audience.

    The speaker was Olivier Vodoz, Vice President of the International Red Cross and Vice President of the Swiss Committee for the Return of the Parthenon Marbles.

    He outlined the historic and legal framework of the issue and referred to the efforts made so far, and that are continuing, both by the Greek state and the International Committee for the return of the Marbles.

    The speaker further stressed the hope that with the construction of the New Acropolis Museum and the positive progress of internatiaonal law in this sector, the Parthenon Marbles will return to their historic environment which has a unique character.

    [03] Athens Newspaper Headlines

    Illegal migration and the measures announced by the government, assessments of the European Parliament elections and optimism on economic recovery by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) were the main front-page items in Athens' dailies on Friday.

    ADESMEFTOS TYPOS: "Drastic decisions on illegal migration - Finally, the proper measures have begun by the government".

    APOGEVMATINI: "Vise by 500 policemen in Athens' ghettos - Gigantic ELAS (Greek Police) operation at 8:30 p.m. (Thursday) in Omonoia Square, Aghios Panteleimonos and Metaxourgeio districts to clean up the capital's center of gangs of drug dealers and illegal migrants".

    AVGHI: "They're trying to drum up votes with security issues, picking up migrants".

    AVRIANI: "Lasting 'sweep' operation for illegal migrants, and fear of provocations that could trigger tension - The package of measures announced by government immediately put into effect".

    CHORA: "This is how the Turks are breaking up Greece - Now they're materialising the Ozal dogma", adding that the application of a plan by the Turkish establishment, based on the dogma of Turgut Ozal for population alteration of the country is apparent, perhaps, in the uncontrolled entry of illegal migrants into Greece via Turkey.
