  • [01] Twenty persons detained after entering into the parliament courtyard

    ANA/MPA---Twenty persons were taken in for questioning on Wednesday after an anti-establishment group entered into the parliament's courtyard holding banners and asked for the liberation of convicted terrorist Savvas Xiros for health reasons, the abolition of the so-called 'terror law' and the high security prisons.

    [02] New Democracy spokesman : The country has no more money

    ANA/MPA---"We have lost two months over this negotiation and the bottom line is that the country has got no money. In other words, we were discussing how to get money without a memorandum and we eventually got an extension of the memorandum without money. This is the bottom line," New Democracy spokesman Costas Karagounis on Wednesday told Mega TV.

    He also underlined that the country has no more money. "We are living on the money we left behind; however, they used up all this money, we don't have a realistic plan for the day-after while the market has paralysed and the real economy has suffered consequences."

    [03] Former PM Simitis to testify in Tsochatzopoulos case on April 29

    ANA/MPA---The five-member Court of Appeal for Felonies on Wednesday summoned former Prime Minister Costas Simitis, PASOK leader Evangelos Venizelos and members of the Government Council for Foreign Affairs and Defence (KYSEA) in the period when Akis Tsochatzopoulos was Defence Minister, to testify after Easter in the case of the armaments procurement programmes.

    The Court summoned the former KYSEA members to testify on April 29. The court also decided to call, apart from Simitis and Venizelos, former ministers Yannos Papantoniou and Vasso Papandreou to testify.

    The subpoena to former members of KYSEA has been a standing request of the main accused Akis Tsochatzopoulos since the beginning of the judicial investigation, who argues that the decision on the disputed contracts for submarines and the TOR M1 was a government decision and was not taken by himself but by KYSEA.

    Meanwhile, the court rejected the applications for suspension of execution of sentence that would release Tsochatzopoulos' wife Vicky Stamati and his accountant Frosso Lambropoulou.
