  • [01] Budget revenues surpassed targets by 835 mln euros in October

    Greek budget revenues significantly surpassed targets in October by 835 million euros, the General Secretariat for Public Revenue said on Thursday. In a report, the general secretariat said that budget revenue surpassed budget targets by 2.32 billion euros in the 10-month period from January to October.

    Net revenue surpassed targets by 835 million euros, or 21.37 pct from budget targets in October, while in the January-October period budget revenues surpassed targets by 2.32 billion euros or 6.16 pct.

    [02] Eight Turkish officers detained as extradition request is discussed

    The eight Turkish officers who entered Greece illegally after the failed coup attempt in Turkey last July were arrested anew on Thursday, as part of the legal procedure to decide whether to extradite them to the neighbouring country.

    An asylum committee rejected their applications earlier in the summer but they have all appealed the decision. They will remain detained until their trial. In their extradition request, Turkish authorities say the eight men are wanted for attempted abolition of the Constitution and the parliament, attempted murder against the president of the Turkish Republic and the seizure of a helicopter.

    The prosecutor has requested additional information from Turkish authorities concerning the extradition request.

    Speaking to journalists after the arrest, the eight defendants' lawyer Christos Mylonopoulos said his clients will not face a fair trial if they are returned to Turkey and cited recent announcements to reinstate the death penalty.

    "A procedure is starting although we know it is impossible to have a fair trial in Turkey and Turks reserve for them an inhuman and degrading treatment, while it has been announced from official lips that they will reinstate the death penalty," he said.
