  • [01] PM Tsipras calls for 'global shift to a climate-friendly, sustainable society' at COP21

    Greece's Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, in his address to the COP21 Climate Change Conference in Paris on Monday, said the summit should be a historic turning point for a "global shift to a climate-friendly, sustainable society."

    "Greece, which at this time is experiencing an unprecedented refugee crisis and human despair, gives political priority to prevent climate change displacement risk," he said, expressing hope that the leaders in Paris will rise to the challenge and "not allow future generations to accuse us of not seizing the opportunity."

    [02] EU's Costello: Greek bank deposits no longer at risk of 'haircut

    Greek bank deposits are no longer in risk of a "haircut", the European Commission's mission chief to Greece Declan Costello said on Monday during a speech at an annual business forum in Athens.

    Speaking at "The Greek economy" conference, Costello also noted that although it is difficult to give an answer as to when capital controls will be lifted, a successful bank recapitalization and program review will speed up the process.

    The EU official also said a debt relief is possible under conditions and when asked about reports claiming there will be an increase in employer contributions to social security, Costello replied this would not help the creation of new jobs and that the reforms must be seen in their entirety.

    The conference is organized by the American-Hellenic Chamber of Commerce.

    [03] Corruption minister holds meeting on German list of 10,000-plus Greeks with cash abroad

    Alternate Justice Minister for Corruption issues Dimitris Papaggelopoulos on Monday chaired a second meeting on the so-called "Borjan's List" - a list of 10,588 bank accounts belonging to Greeks at a Swiss branch of UBS, with total deposits amounting to 6.5 billion euros, supplied to Greece by the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia.

    Participants in Monday's meeting included the Financial Prosecutor Panagiotis Athanassiou, the prosecutors that were part of a working group working on the agreement with North Rhine-Westphalia and officials from the justice and finance ministries. The participants discussed cooperation between the various sides involved in the handling of the case, while the financial prosecutor asked for additional support.
