  • [01] Jean-Claude Juncker in Athens

    ANA/MPA---The new President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker on Friday will pay an "informal" visit to Athens. Juncker will have a meeting and a working lunch with Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras.

    This is Juncker's second visit to Athens since his election as president of the European Commission. Recent developments in Europe as well as the progress of the Greek programme are expected to dominate the meeting.

    [02] Greek minister cancels games in memory of dead football fan

    ANA-MPA - Greece's deputy sports and culture minister cancelled all the official games of national team sports scheduled for the coming weekend, in memory of a football fan who died after being attacked during a game.

    The 47-year-old man was injured during clashes at a second league football match between Cretan team Irodotos and Piraeus-based Ethnikos on September 14.

    Four men were arrested for the incident and are facing multiple counts of attempted murder and serious bodily harm. Three of the suspects have been jailed and another has been conditionally released on bail pending trial.

    "As a small token of respect for the memory of Kostas Katsoulas who lost his life today as a victim of football violence, the Deputy Culture and Sports Minister Yiannis Andrianos decided to cancel all the official team matches for the next sports period," a statement from the ministry said.

    The decision affects the sixth day of the Super League football games, one day in the 3rd football league, one day of the Greek Basketball Cup, the third day of men's handball championships and the first day of women's basketball game.

    The ministry said the games will be rescheduled in due time.
