    Appellate Prosecutor Kyriakos Karoutsos is due to the headquarters of Athens Police, where he is to let former Examiner Konstantina Bourboulia know of the European arrest warrant issued against her on charges of money laundering and abuse of power. The former Examiner will then be brought before the Appellate Prosecutor, who is to present the indictment against her. Konstantina Bourboulia has the right to request a deadline, however, she should testify in a weeks time. Then, the Appellate Examiner and the Prosecutor are to decide on her detention. In case they rule in favour of her detention, she will be transferred to a special cell in Korydallos prison. Mrs Bourboulia is also likely to request her being transferred to a hospital, citing health reasons. However, no such claim has been filed, yet.

    In the meantime, her lawyer is already at the Athens Police headquarters and he is most likely to meet with his client, who is being held on a special cell on the seventh floor.

    Early on Saturday morning, she was taken to the photograph and fingertip department. As per information, she has lost weight and she seems rather run down. Yet, she is cooperative with the authorities.

    It is noted that the former Examiner has been detained by the Greek authorities since yesterday, following her extradition from France.

    Tom Fox, the US Christian peace activist that had been abducted along with other three peace workers in November, was found dead. The initial results yielded by the post-mortem suggested that the body of the 54-year-old man, who had been in Iraq going over accusations speaking of tortures performed by the US and Iraq troops, showed signs of torture. A group calling itself the Swords of Righteousness Brigade claimed responsibility for the abductions, and threatened to kill the men if Iraqi prisoners detained by the United States and Iraq were not released. In a video TV network Al-Jazeera aired on February 28, the three hostages were shown pleading for their governments to help, but Tom Fox did not appear on the video. Fox, 54, a Quaker from Clear Brook, Virginia, was father to two children.

Regarding the flexibility in the work market, the Minister pointed out that it should be carefully handled through safeguarding consensus and security. In his statements, the Greek Employment Minister referred to the dialogue on the social security issue. On the sidelines of the Council, Mr Tsitouridis met with the EU Commissioner for Employment and Social Affairs Vladimir &#352;pidla, as well as with acting President Mr Bartenstein.

    The deadly avian flu cases confirmed so far in Indonesia have raised the countrys death toll to 22. A World Health Organisation laboratory in Hong Kong announced that a 12-year-old girl is the 22nd victim of the flu. The young girl died on March 1 in a hospital in the town of Boyolali, central Java, and the special tests carried out in a WHO accredited laboratory confirmed that she had been infected with the H5N1 strain. The young girl had physical contact with dead birds near her house. It is noted that Indonesia reported the first human H5N1 case in 2005. Since then, some 30 human cases have been confirmed, with eight patients having survived the avian flu.
