  • [01] SYRIZA MEP Glezos: Germany refuses to see reality on war reparations

    ANA/MPA---The issue of the German war reparations to Greece has been transferred from Greece to Germany, stated Europarliament SYRIZA deputy Manolis Glezos clarifying that is not a difference between the two countries but between the German people and their government. "The German people will give the solution by pressing their government," he said at a press conference he gave with Die Linke Europarliament deputy Martina Michels in Berlin late Wednesday.

    Glezos noted that he does not consider the German people responsible for the Nazis' crimes but blamed the German governments which "refuse to see the reality". The 'weapon' in this case is "the right, the restoration of justice" he underlined and explained that he does not recommend the judicial way "I do not like courtrooms. What I request is a Treaty between Greece and Germany to be signed. Typically were are at ceasefire . What does that mean, that we are at war? For the moment the treaty is signed, Germany will have to pay," said Glezos.

    Asked on the course of the negotiations with the institutions, Glezos stated his position which is clear and has not changed "No a single step back. No retreat," he added and reiterated his proposal for a payments' moratorum for a year.

    On Thursday, Glezos will be the keynote speaker at a Die Linke event on the occasion of the 70-year anniversary from the end of WWII that will be held at the federal parliament.

    [02] Golden Dawn's trial adjourned to May 12

    ANA/MPA---The trial of Golden Dawn's leadership and members before a Criminal Appeals Court was adjourned to May 12.

    Regarding the demand on the transfer of the trial to another location, the president of the court said that the decision rests with the political leadership.

    "We do not choose the place where trials take place; that issue rests with the political leadership. As soon as the issue is resolved, we will be transferred," she stated.
