    [02] Napoleon's Monkey

    04 Jun 2005 09:22:00

    By Tina Valaoura

    The discovery of bones that probably belong to a monkey or a gorilla on a beach in Hartlepool, northeast Britain last month was enough to literally drag an old skeleton out of the closet! It has given rise to discussions concerning a popular local legend about a monkey that was executing by the British during the time of the Napoleon Wars, somewhere between 1793 and 1815, on the charge of espionage for the French!

    According to the myth, which of course cannot be verified, one fine morning, the poor mammal was washed ashore on Hartlepool beach dressed in a French military uniform. Since the locals had never seen a Frenchman before, they thought that was actually what they looked like. the creature was arrested by the local authorities it remains unknown whether they were sober or not was found guilty and was sentenced to hanging. The execution took place the next day and the monkey was hanged from the mast of a fishing boat.

    No one knows whether this actually happened or not, however, for some reason, the locals have grown attached to the story. They have even erected a statue of the monkey, while the local football teams mascot is H Angus, a man dressed in a monkey suit. Actually, the man wearing the suit, Stuart Drummond, was elected Mayor of the town in 2002 due to the immense popularity he acquired because of his role.

    The discovery of the bones have given food for thought to the locals, with the story becoming the main topic of discussion in the pubs. However, historians are trying to set the record straight. Approximately 2,000 years ago, Hartlepool was a lush forest, but as the shorelines kept changing over the years, the tides washed away the trees and animals. So, as per the experts, there is a chance that the bones may be much older, but the locals are turning a blind eye, as they much prefer their own version.

    [03] European Left Meeting

    04 Jun 2005 10:30:00

    By Tina Valaoura

    The President of Synaspismos (Left Coalition), Alekos Alavanos, is in Rome, where he will be participating in the European Left Presidents meeting, scheduled for 4-6 June. The discussions will focus on the evaluation of the situation in the Member-States and the EU in general, in relation to the progress of the Constitutional Treaty ratification to date, as well as the initiatives to be taken by the European Left Party. The Presidents will also discuss the details regarding the 1st Convention of the European Left Party, which will be hosted in Athens in October 2005 and will discuss the partys alternative proposal for Europe.

    [04] G. Papandreou uses Harsh Tongue

    03 Jun 2005 23:52:00

    By Vicky Keleri

    Speaking at a PASOK members convention in Patras, the partys president, George Papandreou, launched a severe head-on attack against the Government. He described the PMs announcements in the area of labour relations as a communications trick, which he uses to reinforce his image. As a matter of fact, Mr Papandreou repudiated the specific practice, saying that he would not want that kind of an image. He also accused the government of being unable to reform the government and lead it to the future. He also referred to the issue with OTE, accusing New Democracy of hiding the problems created by the contract entered into by OTE and OME-OTE. Furthermore, he blamed Mr Karamanlis of choosing to "buy and pay off the privileged, sending the bill to the lower masses," while he had promised a reform that would guarantee the opposite.

    Hypocrisy and Inaction

    PASOKs President also referred to the bill submitted by the Government for a collaboration between the private and the public sector, evaluating that the such a programme would be implemented in at least three years, while no moves towards that direction would have been made until then.

    He further claimed that as a result, the citizens of regional Greece would pay dearly for any services rendered, widening the gap between urban and regional centers.

    He also accused the Government of not undertaking any works in regional Greece over the 15 months it has been in power.

    In addition, he described ND as hypocritical, mentioning as an example a case of appointing private citizens on the Board of Directors of ATE Leasing, although they had been convicted for an offence relating to the company, solely because they were party members.

    Party Affairs at the Focus

    Mr Papandreou also referred to the developments with PASOKs internal affairs in view of the Sunday party elections.

    He stressed that he wants PASOK to become a party of values and principles, underlining that the dated ideas would be cast away.

    Referring to the role of the unionists movement today, he noted that it would have to lead the way in the area of reforms, join the populist movement and work together towards achieving security, progress and development for the people and the country.

    [05] Traffic Cameras Vandalised

    04 Jun 2005 11:35:00

    By Tina Valaoura

    Sources: NET 105.8

    Six traffic surveillance cameras placed in various streets throughout Attica were targeted last night during a planned attack by unknown offenders. They set fire to the base of the posts that the cameras were mounted on, using some type of flammable liquid, and as a result they were rendered inoperational. The incidents occurred within the span of half an hour at the following intersections: the Liossia sewage bridge and Domokos; Athens-Lamia National Highway and Dimokratias Street; Amfitheas Avenue and Achilleos Street, in Amphithea; Mesogeion Avenue and Solomou Street, in Agia Paraskevi; and Piraeus and Chysostomou Smyrnis Streets, in Tavros.

    [06] Eirinaios Asks Karamanlis to Intervene

    04 Jun 2005 11:22:00

    By Tina Valaoura

    Sources: ΝΕΤ 105.8

    In a letter to the Greek PM Kostas Karamanlis, the former Patriarch Eirinaios of Jerusalem is allegedly asking him to intervene in order to terminate the "artificial" unsettled situation, as he described it.

    According to Media sources, in the letter, Eirinaios is accusing the Deputy FM Panagiotis Skandalakis and the Greek Consular in Jerusalem, Eleni Sourani, of raw and blatant intervention, while he blames Patriarch Bartholomew of holding a prejudiced stance. Furthermore, he attributes the crisis in Jerusalem to conspiracies and personal aspirations of his Holy Sepulchre brothers, while he also targets the Media. It remains unknown whether the Greek PM has received the letter yet.

    [07] Plane Bomb Hoax

    04 Jun 2005 11:52:00

    Sources: ANA

    The 135 passengers of a Cyprus Airlines flight bound for Athens arrived at their destination with a 4-hour delay, following a call for a bomb threat, which turned out to be a hoax.

    According to the security services, an unknown woman, who spoke in Greek, called Larnaca Airport and said that the plane which departed for Athens at 8:30pm contained a bomb onboard.

    The captain was notified immediately and he returned the plane to Larnaca Airport, where it landed in the airports security area, while the passengers were evacuated.

    The plane was searched thoroughly and as no bomb was found, it departed for Athens a little after 2am.

    [08] European Hopefuls

    The Greek U21 National team scored a great victory tonight. With a magnificent performance, Stelios Aposporis squad defeated Turkey by 0-1 inside Ali Sami Yen Stadium for the U21s European Championship preliminaries, and is now back in the game for a place in the finals. Following this victory, the Greek team is now in second place in their group and they have probably secured qualifying to the next round. The goal that sealed the match was kicked by Panagiotis Lagos in the 58, while the Greek team finished off the game with ten players, as Tziolis was shown a yellow-red card in the 77. Meanwhile, they paved the way for the National Greek Team, which will be playing against Turkey tomorrow.

    Anything Can Happen

    They did what they had to do. The Greek U21 National Team scored a victory and increased its chances of qualifying for the next round of the U21s European Championship. Lagos goal in the 58, following a great joint effort by Samaras and Mantzios, was enough for the team to secure a victory over Turkey inside Ali Sami Yen Stadium. And what is more, they managed to win, even though they were playing with 10 footballers.

    The Greek team set the pace from the start and following an unsuccessful header by Emre during the first ten minutes, it charged ahead, pressuring the Turkish defence. This pressure produced two very good opportunities for the Greeks. In the 12, Hanefis error was cleared away to a corner by Fevzi. Thirteen minutes later, Samaras demonstrated his class, when he weaved past three opponents, but his kick was stopped short by the Turkish goalkeeper.

    The Turks responded immediately with Ibrahim, since Leontios eased up on him, but his kick was marginally wide. Apart from the two yellow cards for Tziolis, French referee Bruno Coue showed yellow cards to Emre, G&#246;khan and Hanefi.

    TURKEY: Fevzi, Tayfun (73 Umut), Mehmet &#199;o&#287;un, Al, Emre, Hanefi, Mehmet Topuz, Adem, G&#246;khan (81 Semih), Fahri (63 Bilal), &#304;brahim.

    GREECE: Sifakis, Torosidis, Papadopoulos, Fytanidis, Tziolis, Mandrinos (53 Mantzios), Goundoulakis (70 Kyriakidis), Arabatzis, Samaras (80 Liapakis), Lagos.
