  • [01] National Council on Foreign Policy convenes on Monday to discuss Greek-Turkish relations

    Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias will chair on Monday, May 4, a meeting of the National Council on Foreign Policy at the foreign ministry at 11.00, to examine the course of Greek-Turkish relations.

    [02] Two dead and 18 injured in Korydallos prison clash

    Two inmates were killed and 18 others were injured during a clash in Korydallos prison on Sunday.

    15 out of the 18 injured inmates have already been released from hospital. The other three are still in hospital but out of danger.

    According to reports, it appears that a group of Arab and Albanian inmates attacked a group of Pakistani inmates.

    "I express my deep sorrow for the death of two inmates and the injury of another eighteen during a violent incident in Korydallos prison. Every effort is being made to protect their lives and health," Justice Minister Nikos Paraskevopoulos said.

    "The cause of the conflict between the inmates has not yet been clarified. An extensive investigation is being carried out," he added.

    The Justice Minister cited the prison overcrowding as the reason for the incident and expressed the hope that the law recently passed in Parliament will improve the imprisonment conditions as soon as possible.
