    [02] Suspects charged with providing forged documents to illegal migrants

    (ANA-MPA) -- A group of foreign nationals, all from South Asia countries, is believed to be behind a ring supplying illegal migrants with forged documents for use in the legalisation process, authorities said on Tuesday.

    Police officers investigating the case arrested a Pakistani national, 23, and a Bangladeshi, 36, in the Athens district of Sepolia on Sunday.

    A search in a house used by the suspects revealed 127 official rubber stamps removed allegedly taken from police stations, prefectures, customs offices, hospitals, government ministries, etc, as well as a large number of employer-issued certificates, political asylum application forms and other documents.

    The suspects were led before a prosecutor on Monday while an investigation is underway for the arrest of other suspects.

    [03] BoG: No room for higher taxes

    (ANA-MPA) -- There is no more room for higher tax rates in the country, Bank of Greece governor George Provopoulos said on Tuesday, adding there were two preconditions for the successful outcome of an Economic Adjustment Programme implemented from May 2010.

    The central bankās interim report on monetary policy, submitted to Parliament and the Cabinet, stressed that the first precondition was the adequacy and efficiency of mechanisms implementing the programme, of the public administration. It urged the government to complete its (ANA-MPA) reform programme without any deviation or delay, although it underlined the need for a radical restructuring of the state at all its levels, so that its operations encourage creative initiatives.

    The second precondition was ensuring the continuity of the programme. The central bank stressed that one of the reasons for the current crisis was that similar stabilisation programs in the past failed to be completed successfully, or were abandoned during the process. (ANA-MPA)
