  • [01] Greece honours Mauthausen concentration camp victims

    VIENNA (ANA-MPA / D. Dimitrakoudis) - The memory of 3,700 Greeks who lost their lives during World War II at the Mauthausen Nazi concentration camp, in Upper Austria, was honoured on Sunday with a religious service, addresses and the laying of wreaths at the Greek monument at Mauthausen.

    More than 10,000 pilgrims from throughout Europe attended ceremonies marking the 65th anniversary of the camp's liberation on May 5, 1945.

    [02] FinMin: Measures, not bankruptcy

    (ANA-MPA) -- Finance Minister George Papaconstantinou referred to "radical changes" in so-called "closed professions", the operation of the state, the tax system as well as in the labour and retail markets, in statements published in an Athens daily on Sunday. (ANA-MPA)

    He also distinguished between "vested rights", one that "have been rightfully obtained", and others concerning trade union claims, "to which the state succumbed at some time and which we must consider again."

    Papaconstantinou stressed that the country found itself in a major dilemma, but a simple one at the same time: It would either take painful measures in the sense that it also affects citizens who are not to blame for the situation, or it "would go to the wall". (ANA-MPA)
