  • [01] AHEPA condolences for dead bank employees

  • [01] AHEPA condolences for dead bank employees

    WASHINGTON (ANA-MPA) -- The president of the American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association (AHEPA), the largest and oldest membership-based association of Greek-Americans, issued the following statement on recent developments in Greece:

    "Greece is enduring an unprecedented financial crisis and yesterday adopted a tough and necessary austerity program that will be instrumental in shaping the country's future. As with any debate in a democracy voices on both sides of the issue have the right to be heard. Marching peacefully in protest is certainly acceptable; however, protests that result in the destruction of property, violence, and the murder of fellow citizens, are simply unacceptable and deplorable. We are deeply saddened by the murders of three Marfin banking employees who were dutifully working when their building was set on fire by rioters. Our heartfelt sympathies and prayers are with the victims and their families. We echo the call of Prime Minister George Papandreou to bring the perpetrators of this tragic and heinous act to justice," AHEPA president Nicholas Karacostas said, in a statement.
