  • [01] Bonuses axed over Cup final violence

    (ANA-MPA) -- The government's latest campaign to stamp out hooliganism on Friday generated a decision by OPAP S.A. -- the state-run betting pools -- to withhold a 200,000-euro bonus to Super League Cupwinner AEK Athens.

    Runner-up Atromitos Athens and the football federation (EPO) will also lose money.

    "(The bonus money) ... will be provided immediately as a donation for a charitable purpose, which the board of OPAP S.A. will determine with a new decision, choosing from the many and considerable appeals that have been submitted to the company," an announcement stated.

    The Cup final on April 30 was marred by hooligan violence, before, during and after the game. (ANA-MPA)

    [02] Commissioner Damanaki calls on Athens to improve absorption of fisheries funding

    (ANA-MPA) -- European Commissioner for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Maria Damanaki on Friday referred to the slow absorption rate of EU fisheries grants observed in Greece.

    Speaking in Parliament, she underlined that three years before the European Fisheries Fund (EFF) programme expires (Dec. 2013), Greece has managed to absorb just six million euros out of a total of 208 million euros.

    Damanaki briefed the parliamentary standing committee on production and trade and the committee on European affairs as regards the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP), putting an emphasis on the efforts made to enact special regulations as regards small boats to prevent the economic destruction of coastal regions.

    She pointed out that based on 2009 figures, the Greek fishing boat fleet numbers 17,270 boats, roughly 16,000 of which (96 pct) are small-sized, therefore, instituting special regulations in favour of small boats will contribute to the economic survival of coastal areas.
