  • [01] PM Tsipras to Hollande: Deal with lenders should have concluded long ago

    Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras met with French President Francois Hollande in Paris on Wednesday at the Elysee presidential palace, with whom he discussed Greece's program review.

    According to information, Tsipras explained to Hollande that a deal on the Greek program review would have concluded long ago if the differences among the institutions had not caused delays.

    He also noted that every delay costs money and instability in Europe, adding that, based on data, the Greek economy is doing better than expected and no new measures are needed.

    Concerning the two draft bills on taxation and social security which the government said it will submit to parliament next week, Tsipras told the French president that it is the country's right to decide how to distribute financial burden.

    [02] Greek police arrest seven foreign nationals on Wednesday near Idomeni

    Greek police made two more arrests near Idomeni on Wednesday evening as part of its efforts to crack down on the unknown individuals who misinform the refugees in the camp, raising the total number of those detained to seven.

    The arrestees are two 24-year-old Czech nationals (male and female), in whose possession police found a small quantity of cannabis and a knife.

    Earlier, police arrested three Norwegians (two women and a man) and one Briton for possessing a walkie-talkie inside their car, while a German national was also detained this morning for possessing a pepper spray. A second German national detained on Tuesday for possessing a knife was released after being given a court date in September.

    [03] Ancient grave with 80 bodies found near Athens may be linked to Cylonian affair

    Archaeologists digging in the area of the Faliron Delta, a coastal area in southern Athens which served as a port for Athens in classical times, have discovered an ancient mass grave containing 80 bodies, placed side by side, some of whom are shackled, an antiquities curator said on Wednesday.

    From the research conducted so far, 50 pct of the area has been cleaned and the bones recovered appear to be young men, well-built, with excellent dentition, who do not appear to have bone fractures. One skeleton was discovered with an arrowhead stuck in its shoulder which points to a possible capture, archaeologist Stella Chrysoulaki from the Ephorate of Piraeus, Western Attica, and the Islands, said in a presentation at the Central Archaeological Council.

    The importance of the findings, which came to light during the past 20 days and were found at a depth of a mere 2.5 meters, is that they can be safely dated, because of the presence of two trefoil jugs discovered nearby, placing them at the third quarter of the 7th century BC. This date may connect the skeletons with the Cylonian affair.

    Chrysoulaki said the findings have a huge historical significance and require a close cooperation between the State and the Niarchos Foundation, which is funding the excavation, to best present and conserve the site.
