  • [01] EU must take important decisions

    Helsinki (ANA-MPA/N. Lionakis) -- Greek prime minister George Papandreou stressed that it is crucial for Europe to take important decisions, during a joint press conference with his Finnish counterpart Mari Kiviniemi, after talks between the two premiers in Helsinki on Wednesday.

    Papandreou also met in Helsinki on Wednesday with EU economic affairs commissioner Oli Rehn, the president of the Finnish parliament and the leader of the Social Democratic Party's parliamentary group.

    "It is crucial for Europe to take important decisions," Papandreou said on Wednesday in a joint press conference with Kiviniemi, adding that "these decisions we will take will be very crucial and historic for all of Europe, the eurozone and the euro currency."

    Papandreou said that important and comprehensive "package decisions" must be taken in March so that stability may return to the markets, while he also underlined the major reforms being made in Greece, while he also assured that "the (EU-IMF support) loan (to Greece) will be repaid, with interest".

    [02] Prosecutor proposals criminal charges in law school takeover by illegal migrants

    (ANA-MPA) -- An appellate-level prosecutor has indicated that criminal acts were committed during a takeover of an Athens Law School building last month by a group of more than 250 illegal migrants and their local supporters.

    Prosecutor Spyros Mouzakitis also proposed that misdemeanor charges of disorderly behaviour and vandalism of public property be filed against the illegals -- mostly from North African nationals ferried to Athens from Crete.

    Finally, the prosecutor recommended that charges be filed against the school's rector, Theodosis Pelegrinis, for dereliction of duty -- due to his delay in lifting the "university asylum" status so that law enforcement could enter the facility to remove the protesting and hunger-striking migrants.

    Migrants and their supporters proceeded with the takeover in order to demand that the Greek government unconditionally legalise all migrants in the country. (ANA-MPA)
