  • [01] Justice Minister Athanassiou proposes lifting confidentiality of his phone records

    ANA - MPA --- Justice, Transparency and Human Rights Minister Charalambos Athanassiou suggested that the confidentiality of his phone records be lifted adding if a contact with a judge was found he would resign from minister and MP.

    Referring to the demand of the main opposition for his resignation as well as the resignation of Citizen Protection and Public Order Minister Nikos Dendias, he told Vima FM that these are ridiculous things: "Only those who undermine the work of the government and the country's interests resign, only those who fail to carry out their duties and those who violate the rule of law resign. I do not think that either I or Dendias fall into these categories."

    Athanassiou concluded: "I have said it before and I will say it again that Justice is independent, there was no intervention and anyone who wants, and I give the right to anyone to do so, can lift the confidentiality of the phones records and if they find a call to investigators, then I would resign from minister and deputy. For the honour of Justice. If only one call - a call, not content - to the investigators is found. In any period of time. Before the prosecutions and up until now. The things that are happening at a time when the country is about to take a breather are terrible..."

    [02] New modern art museum gets 3mln-euro grant from Niarchos Foundation

    The Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) board of directors approved a 3-million-euro grant to the National Museum of Contemporary Art (EMST) for the immediate completion of rebuilding work at the museum's building, the former Fix Brewery, SNF announced on Tuesday.

    The grant will support the update and implementation of the museological study, as well as, the purchase and installation of the necessary general and specialized equipment, an SNF announcement underlined, adding that it also covers the presentation cost of the museum's permanent collections, including the configuration of the exhibition space and the transportation and installation of the artworks.

    With the completion of the restoration of the museum building, Athens will have one of the most state-of-the-art and best equipped museum venues in Greece, where both the Greek public and foreign tourists will have the opportunity to discover the history and international dimension of contemporary Greek art, the announcement noted.

    SNF Board of Directors co-president Andreas Dracopoulos commented that the grant "is part of the Foundation's initiatives to support the country's important cultural institutions".
