  • [01] Foreign national arrested for human trafficking

    A 50-year-old Bulgarian national was arrested in Athens' eastern coastal suburb Glyfada on Friday night, charged with human trafficking.

    He is charged with forcing six other Bulgarian nationals, including a 12-year-old boy, to beg on the streets and keeping the largest part of their yield for himself.

    The six beggars were also arrested, and all seven were taken before a public prosecutor on Saturday.

    A search of the 50-year-old's car, with which he would drop off and pick up the other six from their 'posts', turned up several artificial human limbs (hands, legs), which he withheld from the people he was exploiting and would return to them every day after they completed their "shift" and handed him the money.

    The Saturday edition of Athens' dailies at a glance

    The October 4 general elections and news that PASOK ex-leader and former prime minister Costas Simitis will not be included in the PASOK ballots, and PASOK's positions on the national issues, with the focus on FYROM, dominated the headlines of Athens' newspapers on Saturday.

    ADESMEFTOS TYPOS: "Secret agenda on the FYROM issue - The Macedonians awaiting a clear reply from Papandreou (main opposition PASOK leader)", adding that ruling New Democracy (ND) press spokesman George Koumoutsakos on Friday accused PASOK of a "secret agenda" on the national issues, particularly on the FYROM name issue.

    APOGEVMATINI: "PASOK has secret agenda on FYROM issue".

    AVGHI: "They saw the party leaders, they didn't see the teachers - 60,000 pupils without teachers at the opening of the new school year".

    AVRIANI: "Simitis' exclusion a bold but risky move (that was late in coming) by Papandreou".

    CHORA: "Exclusive interview with (foreign minister) Dora Bakoyannis: I never called Simitis the 'high priest of collusion'."

    ELEFTHEROS: "George Papandreou puts an end to the 'life and times' of the colluding 'renovators' - He re-establishes PASOK with the ostracism of Simitis".

    ELEFTHEROTYPIA: "Break with the 'glove' - Simitis left out - The official version: disagreement over the State MPs ticket".

    ESTIA: "The 'stars' of politics - Marketing leveling off everything".

    ETHNOS: "The secret opinion polls 'burn' ND - 'Leaks' of voters to PASOK and LAOS".

    KATHIMERINI: "Definitive break between Papandreou and Simitis".

    KARFI (weekly): "Make way for the youth...Costas (Karamanlis) leaving, the (political) 'barons' (old but powerful ND cadres, mainly former ND leader Miltiades Evert and the prime minister's uncle, Achilleas Karamanlis) staying".

    LOGOS: "The national issues also brought into the 'clash' - The handling of the FYROM name issue at the fore-front".

    NIKI: "With a move ala Andreas (PASOK leader George Papandreou's father, the late former prime minister and PASOK founder), George 'wiped out' Simitis (from the PASOK candidate tickets): I am the party leader".

    RIZOSPASTIS: "People's radical pole, with a strong KKE in the elections".

    TA NEA: "The telephone call produced a 'divorce' - PASOK taken by surprise - The entire behind-the-scenes with Papandreou and Simitis".

    TO VIMA: "Tonight (Saturday night) at the TIF (74th Thessaloniki International Fair), George Papandreou will present his party's entire plan for governance. The 100-day program - The timetable of interventions from the first day in power".

    VRADYNI: "The national issues in grave danger - Papandreou's positions on the Burgas-Alexandroupolis oil pipeline, the FYROM issue and the Cyprus problem a 'bomb'."
