  • [01] Felony charges against former Aspis CEO Psomiadis

    An Athens prosecutor has filed felony fraud charges against the former president and CEO of the Aspis insurance group, Pavlos Psomiadis.

    The indictment comes after the conclusion of a judicial probe into allegations of widespread fraud insurance policy fraud against retail investors.

    The group's up-until-recently financial director was also charged with simple complicity to commit fraud.

    [02] Culture ministry contract workers stage protest at Acropolis

    Contract workers at the culture and tourism ministry staged a protest on Tuesday at the Acropolis during a visit by minister Pavlos Geroulanos, demanding the payment of 24 months of back pay and that they be used to staff new organic posts created at the ministry instead of new hirings.

    The minister told protestors that a relevant amendment is due to be voted in parliament for payment of the unpaid contract employees and that after October 31, when their contracts expire, an ASEP (civil service hiring examinations board) procedure will begin.

    The Acropolis was open without charge to visitors from 8:00 a.m. to noon, at which time the ticket booths were able to open.

    Geroulanos had accompanied President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias on a tour of the restoration works at the Acropolis.

    [03] President tours Acropolis

    President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias on Tuesday toured the Acropolis and inspected the restoration works on the archaeological site, expressing satisfaction on the progress and results so far of the project.

    Papoulias was given a tour of the Propylae and the northern side of the Parthenon temple, from which the scaffolding has been removed after several years of restoration works, by the director of the Acropolis Monument Preservation Service Mary Ioannidou.

    The President commended Ioannidou for the excellent work done.
