  • [01] German authorities: Arrested woman not linked with RAF fugitive (Adds)

    (ANA-MPA) -- German authorities on Sunday reportedly confirmed that a 27-year-old German woman, arrested days ago in Athens during an urban terrorism-related sweep, is not related to 1990s fugitive Barbara Meyer, a one-time cadre in the German terrorist gang "Red Army Faction".

    According to reports, German officials said the detained 27-year-old's mother has no relation whatsoever to Meyer.

    The RAF-linked Meyer was born in 1956, while the mother of the woman arrested in the Perissos district of Athens was born in 1958. The latter also lives permanently in Greece with another two sons, while the woman's father is permanently employed at a Berlin penitentiary as a musicologist.

    In a statement issued on Sunday, the woman's mother lambasted the arrest, charging that it was due to the fact that she, the mother, shares the same name with the RAF fugitive, i.e. "Barbara Meyer". (ANA-MPA) She also issued a stinging condemnation over the way certain media outlets reported her daughter's arrest, calling for "certain reporters to be led before justice".

    Beyond the now defunct RAF connection, Greek anti-terrorism authorities said they are focusing on the 27-year-old woman's links with four suspects arrested last week for a previous bomb attack against a power company worksite in the northern city of Thessaloniki.

    [02] Poll on Evros fence

    (ANA-MPA) -- Three opinion polls appearing in Sunday newspapers indicated that a significant proportion of the public -- as measured by respondents' answers -- favours the construction of a fence along a section of Greece's border with Turkey in Evros prefecture.

    Polls also continued to give ruling PASOK a lead over main opposition ND, while pointing to widespread pessimism for 2011.

    According to a MARC opinion poll published in the Sunday edition of "Ethnos" newspaper, a whopping 80.3 percent of respondents agree with the construction of the fence in northern Evros -- facing the 12.5-kilometre stretch of land west of the Evros River -- while nine in 10 respondents identifying themselves as PASOK and ND supporters believe that a "sweep operation" should be made in central Athens to detain illegal immigrants.
