  • [01] Arrest warrant for former minister Tsohatzopoulos

    An arrest warrant for former minister Akis Tsohatzopoulos was issued on Wednesday who was located and arrested later at his house in central Athens. According to information, a search will be carried out and in his daughter's house.

    Former PASOK minister Akis Tsohatzopoulos face charges for filing an inaccurate "source of income" declaration in 2010, submitted for the fiscal year 2009.

    The suit against Tsohatzopoulos was put together after the results of a crosscheck, using personal data, became available by the responsible Parliamentary committee.

    According to findings of the committee that were forwarded to the Court of Appeals, Tsohatzopoulos' "source of income" declaration did not include his two-storey neo-classical residence on Dionissios Areopagitis boulevard directly facing the south side of the Acropolis in central Athens, while his declared income did not correspond with assets in his possession.

    [02] Greek merchant marine fleet up in capacity

    AMNA--Greek shipowners invested on larger but fewer ships in the period from 2011 until early March 2012, a report by the London's Committee said on Tuesday.

    The Committee, in its annual report on the Greek merchant marine fleet –compiled in cooperation with Lloyd's Register-Fairplay- said the number of Greek-owned ships fell in the period under review, but rose in capacity. The Greek fleet totaled 3,760 vessels in early March, down 88 units from the previous period, while capacity rose by 2.3 million to 264.05 million tons. The figures include a total of 437 vessels currently under work in shipbuilding companies. Worries over structural organizing of the Greek flag led to a decline in the fleet of vessels registered under the Greek flag. It currently totals 862 vessels, down from 917 in 2011 and 969 in 2010. The figures for 2012 include 85 shipbuilding orders, down from 127 in 2011 and 189 in 2010. The Greek flag lost the most Greek-owned vessels (55), followed by Panama (33), Cyprus (23) and St. Vincent (14). Liberia (38), Marshall Islands (15), Hong Kong (11), Bahamas (7) and Malta (5) recorded the biggest increases.amna

    The Greek register, however, remained the top flag among Greek shipowners with 862 vessels, followed by Liberia (630), Malta (523), Marshall Islands (491), Panama (408), Bahamas (293) and Cyprus (235).
