  • [01] Defence Expenses not to Rise

    Defence Minister Evangelos Meimarakis has assured that no more defence expenses will take place in 2009, adding that defence expenses and expenses on armaments since 2004 have been dropping. "The state-budget will not be burdened with additional expenses on armaments" he stressed, while in reply to a relevant question asked by SYRIZA (Coalition of the Radical Left)

    MP Thodoros Dritsas he stressed that Greece is still paying past debts. Moreover, he reported middlemen have been excluded and the government is signing intergovernmental agreements. He also accused SYRIZA of populism.

    SYRIZA MP Thodoros Dritsas spoke of a rise in kickbacks since the past, demanding that rescue operations in the Aegean not be under the rurisdiction of the Ministry of Defence, so that competition with Turkey is averted. He also proposed that the money spent for an F-16 jet fighter should be spent for the restructuring of rural production.
