  • [01] Tunisian Ambassador on working visit to Crete

    The Ambassador of the Republic of Tunisia in Athens, Mr. Moncef Hajeri, will be on the island Crete from July 15 to 18, to investigate prospects for developing economic and cultural relations as well as to give an impetus to the tourist field between Tunisia and Greece.

    Ambassador Hajeri and his spouse will attend, furthermore, a lunch and cocktail organized by the Commander of the Tunisian Vessel of Research and Formation ę"Khaireddine", docked Souda, on Friday, July 17.

    [02] Three killed in train-car collision in Komotini

    Three people were killed in a collision between a train and car on Tuesday morning outside Komotimi.

    The driver of the car, who had violated a guarded crossing, was killed together with the two other passengers in the car.

    No train passenger was injured.

    [03] Salvation campaign for centuries-old olive trees

    Hundreds of unregistered olive trees on the southern Aegean island of Crete, some of them thousands of years old, have become ‚victims‚ of human activities like public works projects and building construction, prompting the reaction of 35 cultural and environmentalist associations.

    The collective effort, supported by the Technological Educational Institute (TEI) of Crete, focuses on recording the olive trees and their ages in order to be salvaged. The goal set is to draw up a map of Crete with the regions where the thousands-of-years-old trees are located.

    Furthermore, a documentary translated into different languages will be ready by the summer of 2010 referring to the historical olive grove of Crete.

    Four olive trees that have been confirmed to be more than 1,000 years old are located in the greater region of Viannos in the prefecture of Heraklion, where tens of olive trees of historical value can also be found. Centuries-old ‚psilolies‚ olive trees grown in the region constitute a proof that extra virgin olive oil was produced there hundreds and probably thousands of years ago.
