  • [01] Greece's creditors will get their money, but not the country, Tsipras says in Rome

    Greece's creditors will get their money, but not the country, main opposition SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras said from Rome on Friday during an address at the Piazza Farnese, in the city's historic centre.

    "We won a critical battle, but the war is still ahead," Tsipras said, adding that "the governments of creditors are ceding to the private sector public businesses, public assets and public natural assets, violating the supreme criterion of public interest."

    Tsipras took part in an open rally of the Italian ballot "The Other Europe with Tsipras", which got 4% in the Europarliament elections of May.

    [02] Police released the name of terrorist Maziotis' accomplice

    Police on Saturday released the identity of the 35 year-old accomplice of terrorist Nikos Maziotis along with photographs of Maziotis and four other unknown individuals alleged to Maziotis' accomplices in a number of armed robberies. Police called the citizen that know something and can assist police's mission to call the Counter Terrorism Squad at the phone numbers 1014 and 10414.

    Police said that Maziotis' collaborator is Giorgos Petrakakos born in 1979 in the Athens suburb of Aghia Paraskevi.

    Meanwhile, Maziotis on Saturday refused to testify to the examining magistrate who visited him at Evangelismos hospital.

    According to information, Maziotis who has been convicted for his participation in the terror group Revolutionary Struggle said he is a rebel and demanded to be transferred to Korydallos prison hospital.

    Maziotis' demand will be probably accepted given that he has signed, against doctors' recommendations, a document in which he asks to be discharged from hospital.

    The examining magistrate gave Maziotis an extension to give his deposition on Monday at 13.30pm.

    [03] Two thirds of Greek enterprises face problems in debt servicing, BoG report says

    ANA/MPA---Two thirds of Greek enterprises are facing problems in servicing their loans, while at least one third of enterprises are in a fully healthy condition and enjoy significant growth prospects, the Bank of Greece said on Friday.

    In an announcement, the central bank said that a number of enterprises, with debts accounting to around 20 pct of total loans, were in a not healthy condition.

    These findings were presented during a workshop meeting organised by the central bank in July 11 to discuss the situation in corporate loans facing repayment problems. The discussion came to the conclusion that a debt settlement would contribute largely to a restructuring of the whole system, allowing enterprises that survived the crisis to grow more. A discussion on legal problems focused mostly on the bankruptcy code. Participants said that the current bankruptcy code was not supportive to efforts towards a corporate debt restructuring. The central bank noted that special situations, such as the current crisis, were tackled using emergency measures worldwide and not with existing ones, as the international experience showed in the Far East, Argentina and in European countries.

    [04] Restoration of Frankish Tower on Acrocorinth

    ANA/MPA---The restoration works of the Frankish Tower on the Acrocorinth (Corinth Acropolis) are rapidly progressing. The restoration is financed by NSRF funds and is held by the 25th Byzantine Antiquities Ephorate working group.

    The castle was declared a Byzantine monument in 1922.

    The Acrocorinth hill was fortified from the antiquity and its walls are connected with the walls of the city of Corinth and with the important ancient harbour of Lechaion.
