    (AMNA) -- Main opposition New Democracy (ND) party on Saturday stepped up its criticism of the government in the wake of a latest EU report on the Greek government.

    ND deputy and economy shadow minister Christos Staikouras emphasised that the assessments on the viability of the Greek debt are particularly damning for the socialist PASOK government.

    He cited the estimate of a return to the market for sovereign lending no earlier than 2021, when the initial projection of the government was for 2011, along with a forecast for an economic recovery after 2013. Staikouras also charged that GDP will fall at greater levels than previously forecast, while the debt will remain at the 130-percent level of GDP until 2030, according to the EU. (AMNA)

    (AMNA) -- The executive committee of the union representing local government workers decided on Friday evening to end a garbage strike that has affected refuse collection throughout the country. Rubbish collectors accompanied by trucks reportedly started picking up the mounds of garbage swamping bins on Friday evening, at least in the greater Athens area.

    The union had initially referred to a "symbolic takeover" of the one and only (AMNA) legal landfill for the greater Athens area as the reason for the garbage pileup in the Greek capital, although it was forced to declare an official strike thereafter. Other major cities, including Thessaloniki in the north, witnessed tons of rubbish pile up on sidewalks and overflow onto streets.

    Labour leaders were protesting a law envisioning layoffs in the wider public sector and possible pay cuts from a unified pay scale. AMNA

    (AMNA) -- Citizens Protection Minister Christos Papoutsis reiterated over the weekend, in published statements, that all third country citizens in the country that do not fulfill conditions for temporary residency "must abandon Greece either voluntarily or via deportation".

    In comments carried in the Sunday weekly "Proto Thema", Papoutsis emphasised that the message that Greece is "not a paradise for illegal migrants must be conveyed everywhere; our society cannot tolerate becoming Europe's warehouse of illegal immigrants".

    The high-profile ruling PASOK minister and one-time EU Commissioner said a new fence along a stretch of the land border with Turkey, one particularly vulnerable to migrant smugglers, is proceeding as planned, along with a network of infrared cameras along the border -- in the extreme NE border prefecture of Evros. (AMNA)

    He also made reference to a stepped up police presence in the centre of Athens, which in recent years has been plagued by increased crime, mainly by gangs of Third World illegal migrants and congregated drug users.(AMNA)
