  • [01] PM chairs meeting on reviving Athens centre

    (ANA-MPA) -- Tougher penalties against those employing illegal migrants, incentives for couples to live in the city centre and the price of a ticket plus 200 euros to migrants that voluntarily leave the country were among measures decided during a government meeting on reviving the centre of Athens held on Monday. The meeting was chaired by Prime Minister George Papandreou.

    Other measures included a sweep to collect abandoned cars, increased policing and urban renewal projects that simultaneously made use of abandoned buildings.

    The meeting was attended by several top ministers. (ANA-MPA)

    [02] Convicted terrorist's request for medical furlough examined on June 6

    (ANA-MPA) -- A Piraeus court on Monday adjourned for June 6 to consider arequest for a medical furlough submitted by Savvas Xiros, one of the convicted "17 November" ultra-leftist urban terrorists. The request was based on health problems that allegedly call for medical examinations at Thessaloniki's AHEPA Hospital.

    The court based its decision on the absence of a medical opinion on Xiros' health problem, which was signed by Korydallos Prison's medical staff.

    Savvas Xiros, 49 -- one of three Xiros brothers serving a prison sentence in the N17 case -- suffered extensive injuries after a bomb he was planting exploded in his hands in June 2002. (ANA-MPA)
