  • [01] We show zero tolerance to all forms of intolerance, President Pavlopoulos stresses

    "We show zero tolerance to all forms of intolerance that affects and undermines our culture and we are bound by the promise we have given: "Holocaust-Never Again," Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos on Wednesday said during his visit to the Holocaust Museum, Israel.

    The President laid a wreath in memory of the Jews killed in Nazi camps and noted that "the Holocaust taught us in the most painful and horrible way that the principles and values of Humanism are not, in fact, self-evident. It is our duty to be vigilant in order to protect them. Especially now that racism, intolerance, anti-Semitism are, unfortunately, again on the rise. That is why it is imperative to maintain the memory of the Holocaust and pass it over to the future generations."

    Pavlopoulos stressed that "it is a matter of national consciousness to refer, among the millions of victims, to the 67,151 Greek Jews who were killed in Nazi camps."

    [02] Greek program review may be ready by end of April, says EC's mission chief to Greece

    The Greek program review can be concluded by the end of April, EC's mission chief to Greece Declan Costello said in a meeting of Greek and European Parliament members, according to Europarliament SYRIZA deputy Dimitris Papadimoulis.

    During the meeting of the Social Affairs Committees of the European and the Greek Parliaments, Costello informed the Greek delegation that the International Monetary Fund wishes an agreement is reached and is not asking for more than those agreed in August. He also estimated that the differences between the Greek side and the creditors can be bridged.

    [03] ND to propose parliamentary probe into capital controls and third memorandum, party sources say

    Main opposition New Democracy intends to table a proposal within the day for a parliamentary probe to investigate the reasons why capital controls were imposed on Greece, as well as the signing of the third memorandum and the need for a fresh recapitalisation of Greek banks, sources at the party's headquarters said on Wednesday.

    Such a parliamentary examining committee should also investigate whether there was a plan for the country's exit from the euro through the issue of a parallel currency and a haircut of bonds held by the European Central Bank, or whether there was a plan to break into Greece's national mint that involved ministers of the previous government, the same sources said.

    It should also look into whether the prime minister knew about such plans, as ministers of the then government had claimed, or whether they were acting not on his orders and without his knowledge, they noted.

    The sources pointed out that ND leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis, during Tuesday's debate in Parliament, had called on Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to strike an agreement under which the main opposition will vote in favour of the government's proposal for an examining committee on the loans to political parties and the media, while the government will vote in favour of ND's own proposals for an examining committee.

    [04] Vanessa Redgrave visits refugees at Piraeus

    British actress and activist Vanessa Redgrave on Wednesday visited the refugees that are temporarily hosted at Pireaus port.

    Redgrave spoke with refugees and migrants and listened closely to their problems. Most of them said they want to go to Europe but the borders are closed.

    In her statements, the British actress said it is a shame for Europe and for the Europeans to not accept refugees and some countries to continue to keep their borders closed.

    Redgrave was accompanied by playwright Martin Sherman and on the part of "Medicines Sans Frontieres" the responsible of the Greek department Apostolos Veizis. Redgrave supports "Medicines Sans Frontieres" action.

    [05] National Bank ready to support economic recovery, NBG chief Katseli says

    National Bank (NBG) meets the pressing needs of the country for reconstruction of the productive base in order to safeguard social cohesion and the continuous upgrading of the educational and cultural level, its governor Louka Katselli on Wednesday said in an event for the celebration of its 175 anniversary.

    On his part, the managing director of National Bank Leonidas Fragiadakis said that the bank is ready to commit all its forces in order to lead the economic recovery.

    National Bank, with unprecedented capital ratios in our market, and excess liquidity, it is ready to finance the economy and support innovative businesses through sound risk-taking, and an alignment of incentives between the bank and the company, he added.
