  • [01] Antiquities smugglers; burglars arrested

    ANA-MPA/Two men, aged 26 and 41, were arrested while trying to sell two stolen icons to a third individual, who managed to flee, police said on Tuesday.

    The icons, dating back to the late 18th century, were stolen from a Byzantine church in the region of Kouvaras, Aetoloakarnania Prefecture, in central Greece.

    In a separate incident, two Georgian nationals, 33 and 41, were arrested in the district of Nea Smyrni, Athens accused of committing a total of 33 break-ins. A large number of stolen goods were found in their apartment.

    [02] State budget deficit down

    ANA-MPA/According to the preliminary data available for the state budget implementation for the first seven months of 2010 (January - July), on a fiscal basis the deficit amounted to 12,097 million euro, versus 20,050 million euro during the same period of 2009 and consequently declined by 39.7%, against a targeted 39.5% annual decline foreseen in the economic policy programme, the state's General Accounting Office announced on Tuesday.

    The fiscal result of the seven months of 2010 is due to both a restriction of expenditures and increased revenues, and has been accomplished before the full attribution of the additional measures instituted on March and May, 2010, according to the office.
