  • [01] Man claiming responsibility for Dec. 2004 killing of policeman in court on Tues.

    A 32-year-old man associated with the so-called "anti-establishment" underground movement has been granted a continuance until Tuesday to appear before a special investigating magistrate, after he voluntarily turned himself in on Friday to authorities in Athens and claimed participation in the assassination of a police sentry in late December 2004.

    Special police sentry Haralambos Amanatidis was gunned down outside the residence of the British military attaché on the last day of 2004.

    The man was arrested in 2006 for his part in the assault of then GSEE labour union president Christos Polyzogopoulos, spending a total of 17 months in jail pending trial. His case never went to trial after Polyzogopoulos declined to continue pressing charges.

    The same suspect has been arrested on charges in the northeastern town of Xanthi and also reportedly admitted to holding up a bank in central Athens last March.

    [02] US Rep. Titus meets PM

    Greek Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis on Saturday met with US Congresswoman Dina Titus, US President Barack Obama's representative at the inauguration ceremony for the New Acropolis Museum.

    Titus also met separately with main opposition PASOK leader George Papandreou.

    Meanwhile, in a meeting with Tourism Development Minister Costas Markopoulos, the Democrat lawmaker who represents Nevada's 3rd Congressional district, discussed tourism-related issues with the minister as well as the issue of Greece being included on the US visa waiver program.

    The Nevada legislator, a native of the state of Georgia who is of partial Greek descent, later met with Cyprus President Demetris Christofias.

    She was accompanied by US ambassador to Greece Daniel Speckhard.

    Andreas Papandreou died on June 23, 1996.
