  • [01] Pope invites Alexandria Patriarch

    Pope Benedict has invited Patriarch Theodoros of the Orthodox Church of Alexandria and All Africa to visit the Vatican, in a letter delivered by the Roman Catholic Church's Nuncio in Cairo, Bishop Michael Fitzgerald.

    In the same letter, the Pope describes the meeting he will have with Theodoros as "important and significant".

    During the visit, the Patriarch will also meet with the president of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, Cardinal Walter Kasper.

    The date of the visit will be determined in the near future.

    [02] Zachopoulos case: Felony charges

    First Instance Court Prosecutor Eleni Raikou brought felony charges against all persons responsible in the case of the attempted blackmail of culture ministry former secretary general Christos Zachopoulos, based on evidence collected by special examining magistrate Dimitris Economou. The felony charges concern the blackmailing attempt against Zachopoulos and the violation of personal data protection legislation. Former culture ministry secretary general Christos Zachopoulos attempted to commit suicide late last month after being blackmailed with a DVD containing footage of his sexual encounters with ministry former employee Evi Tsekou, his assistant at the time. The attempted suicide prompted an avalanche of accusations and revelations allegedly involving journalists and politicians and their role in the case.
