  • [01] SYRIZA spokesman Skourletis testifies in MPs' alleged briberies case

    "Justice must be allowed to be free and do its work without interventions," main opposition SYRIZA spokesman Panos Skourletis said on Thursday exiting the Appeals Prosecutor Panagiotis Panagiotopoulos' office where he testified over the case of MPs' alleged briberies.

    "The hypocritical cries, the doomsday rhetoric and the government's efforts to reverse reality are a conscious choice to conceal the fiasco of the country's so-called withdrawal from the memorandum and the International Monetary Fund (IMF)," he underlined adding that the government will be overthrown by the need for a strong government, which will correspond to the real correlation that exists in society, for exiting the crisis.

    Skourletis had been called to testify as part of an investigation into MPs' bribery allegations regarding the election of a President of Republic. The head of SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras' office Nikos Pappas will testify later in the day.

    [02] ECB to loosen rules for Greek banks' borrowing‏

    The European Central Bank will further lower a "haircut" imposed on bonds offered as collateral by Greek banks for their borrowing from the Eurosystem.

    The Bank of Greece on Thursday confirmed that during a communication between Greek central banker Yannis Stournaras with ECB's president Mario Draghi, the ECB expressed its intention to "loosen" the framework covering Greek banks' borrowing with the aim to boost their liquidity.

    In its framework, the ECB is expected to lower a "haircut" imposed on securities offered by Greek banks as collateral to borrow from the central bank.

    According to the latest figures, Greek banks' borrowing from the European Central Bank totaled 42.6 billion euros in September.
