    Brussels under Siege

    Joining forces in a Pan-European protest against the skyrocketing fuel and food prices, trade unions have pledged to meet in Brussels. Tractors, lorries and cabs are flocking Brussels by thousands, aiming to wreak havoc in the centre of the city on Thursday, the opening day of the EU Summit. The surging fuel prices, the rise in inflation and the taking of measures against the high cost of living plaguing Europe are to run high on the agenda of the 27-nation bloc. The preparation of the Summit was the key work of the European Parliament Plenum on Wednesday, during which European Commission President Jos&#233; Manuel Barroso reiterated that Europe has to answer to the citizens concerns. In the meantime, Greek Prime Minister Kostas Karamanlis met with Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis to work on Greeces stance in the Summit.

    Mass Demonstrations

    More than 120 lorries blocked off Brussels central roads, while hundreds of tractors were entering the Belgian capital city from the south.

    Tractors and lorries had gathered on the outskirts of the area, hosting the two-day Summit, which will mainly focus on the surging oil prices.

    "With the barrel reaching 140 and maybe 200 dollars, we can no longer make ends meet," said a transport company chief.

    With the food prices making foodstuffs a luxury and oil prices nearing to break the $150 threshold, thousands of drivers demand emergency measures.

    Lorries drivers want the government increase their customers rates so that they can address the rise in oil prices, while farmers, who suffer from the implications brought about by the rising oil prices, have put down the trimming of their income to the low prices they sell their products.

    Police are trying to keep farmers in the regional roads. The demonstrator, however, have warned they are ready to wreak havoc in central Brussels.

    The EU Is Considering Package of Emergency Measures

    The EU Summit has to give answers to the citizens concerns, which stem from the skyrocketing oils prices, argued European Commission President Jos&#233; Manuel Barroso on the eve of the Summit.

    The Brussels Summit will draw its attention to the rising fuel and food prices that weigh down house budgets and economic activities, said Barroso. He further added that the Summit has to live up to the citizens expectations.

    The European Commission President also spoke of a package of emergency measures meaning to help people in dire need.

In a Press Conference she gave at noon, Ms Bakoyannis stressed that the Greek side would continue striving for a mutually accepted solution on FYROM name issue, hoping that the new government in Skopje will avoid an extreme nationalistic stance.

    Eyes Turned to EU Summit Meeting

    Ms Bakoyannis expressed her concern over the EUs future after Irelands "no", adding that the EU should not end up in a state of introvert passivity.

    The Foreign minister stated that the next step should be the ratification of the Lisbon Treaty by the next eight member-states.

    As for Turkey, she stressed that Turkeys European prospect needs a boost and only Turkey can see to that.

    [04] Last Euro Game for Greece

    18 Ιουν 2008 15:36:0

    By Ampelakis Spyros

    Sources: ANA

    Greece is giving Wednesday night its last game at the 13th Euro tournament, taking on Spain on match day three of Group D. The only aim of the former European Champs is at least a tie or if possible scoring a goal, lest it should leave Salzburg without garnering any points or scoring any goals.

    The Spaniards, on the other side, have already advanced to the next round of the tournament and tonight, the teams coach is willing to throw to the pitch several players who have not played yet.

    Otto Rehhagel of Greece is most likely to do the same. The encounter starts at 21:45 (Greek local time) and will be broadcast by NET state-run television.

    [05] Plenum Discusses the Contract with Deutsch Telekom

    Controversy over OTE

    18 Ιουν 2008 17:37:0

    Sources: ΝΕΤ, ΝΕΤ 105.8, ANA-MPA

    The debate on the ratification of the contract signed between the Greeks state and Deutsche Telekom over the Hellenic Telecommunications Organisation (OTE) continues in the Parliaments Plenum. Finance Minister Giorgos Alogoskoufis reiterated it is a successful agreement of strategic importance in the interest of the consumers. The opposition parties, on the other hand, labelled it as third-world and colonial. In fact, Socialist deputy Evangelos Venizelos held the government politically and legally responsible. Head of SYRIZAs (Coalition of the Radical Left) parliamentary group Alekos Alavanos, on his part, sent a letter to the Speaker requesting the documents regarding the contract be tabled and examined before the ratification of the contract.

    The first sitting of the Parliaments Plenum was wrapped up with the Finance Minister defending the "strategic agreement" and the opposition blasting the government for "selling off OTE with a third-world contract.

    The morning session was marked by the acrimonious wrangling between Finance Minister Giorgos Alogoskoufis and PASOK (Panhellenic Socialist Movement) spokesman Evangelos Venizelos.

    Alogoskoufis reiterated, "The Government has not deceived anyone" and that the plan to have more OTE shares sold and look for a strategic investor had been NDs (New Democracy) pre-election pledges, which the people of Greece backed with their vote.

    The Finance Minister underlined that the agreement is in the interest not only of the Organization but also of the consumers and the Greek economy. He then went on to blast the main opposition party for employing an "ostensible tactic," since, as he said, it was too looking for a strategic investor, but it failed.

    Evangelos Venizelos, on the other hand, spoke of "an obscure, long-running and illegal settlement that proves the governments both legal and political responsibility."

    "OTEs further denationalization is the governments political decision. It announced it in two election encounters and received the positive vote of the Greek people. I can understand the reactions of the rest opposition parties, but I cannot understand the main oppositions accusations. PASOK had the same policy. It was working on OTEs denationalization for years and intended to broker a strategic alliance. It just failed to do so, and it was the ND government that managed to accomplish it," noted Alogoskoufis.

    "The government is pushing forth this obscure, illegal and long-running settlement and is asking the House to ratify it, being under the illusion that it can wash away its legal and political responsibilities. You have been exposed both politically and legally. You have committed a crime. This proves your inefficiency and guilt, because you masterminded this plan at the expense of the Greek state," claimed Venizelos.

    Conservative cadre Giannis Manolis maintained he would vote for the contract for a strategic investor, adding, however, that he would disagree in the future if the states control fell below 25%.

    KKE (Greek Communist Party) rapporteur Nikos Karathanasopoulos said, "KKE will fight to have the agreement scrapped so that OTE remains under state control in the best interest of both the consumers and the OTE staff."

    SYRIZA (Coalition of the Radical Left) spokesman Giannis Dragasakis dismissed the agreement with Deutsche Telekom as shameful and unacceptable.

    LAOS (Popular Orthodox Rally) rapporteur Makis Vorides touched on crucial questions that have not received convincing answers by the government, while his colleague Asterios Rontoulis argued that the government clearly wants to give OTEs management to the Germans.

    Deputy Finance Minister Nikos Legas blasted the opposition parties for creating conspiracy theories and imaginative scenarios. "The government is implementing its pre-election pledges to the full. This agreement is binding and the states percentage will not fall below 5%," underlined Legas.

    [06] EU Ruling on Illegal Immigrants

    18 Ιουν 2008 19:42:0

    Sources: Reuters

    EU lawmakers approved Wednesday a directive on illegal immigrants, with 369 voting for, 197 against and 106 abstaining. Under the new directive, illegal immigrants can be detained for up to 18 months and face a re-entry ban of up to five years. Children can also be detained, according to the new text, which says that this should be for the shortest appropriate period of time, while illegal immigrants are given the right to appeal their deportation ruling.

    Human rights groups have already voiced their grave concern over the new developments, arguing the above measure could encourage authorities to detain more illegal immigrants.

    "We believe that the text approved today by the European Parliament does not guarantee the return of irregular migrants in safety and dignity," Amnesty International said in a statement. "It sets an extremely bad example."

    According to figures, of the about eight million illegal immigrants living in Europe, 200,000 were arrested in the first half of 2007 with less than 90,000 deported

    Kosovo President Fatmir Sejdiu, wielding new powers after the newly independent states constitution came into force, on Wednesday approved the establishment of its first embassies in nine countries. "The Kosovo president decreed the establishment of diplomatic institutions" in the capitals of the United States, Albania, Austria, Belgium, Britain, France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland, said a statement from his office. "These diplomatic missions will be established at the embassy level," it added without saying when they might be opened. Ethnic Albanian-majority Kosovo unilaterally proclaimed independence from Serbia on February 17. Belgrade, backed by its powerful ally Russia, rejected the move as illegal, but Kosovo since has been recognised by more than 40 countries including the nine in which it plans to open the embassies.

    Prosecutor Panagiotis Athanasiou, who is probing the Siemens case, is expected to call new suspects, allegedly implicated in the scandal, to testify.

    In a memo submitted on Wednesday morning by a Siemens representative, who had been called to testify as a suspect since money had allegedly been deposited to his account, he argued everything was legal.

    Asked on the implication in the Siemens scandal of Dora Bakoyannis former associate, who had missed paying off a Siemens invoice, the Foreign Minister said that she had answered to the matter, referring to her interview with Kathimerini paper on 8 February. Bakoyannis voiced her sorrow over her associates involvement, who, as she said, claimed his responsibility.

    She reiterated that she wants both the Greek and German Justice to get to the bottom of the case. "Light must be shed, because it is a matter that relates to the honour of the Greek political world," commented she.

    Second-choice striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar made sure a makeshift Netherlands sent Romania out of the European Championship on Tuesday with a 2-0 win, a result which allowed Italy to join the Dutch in the quarterfinals. Huntelaar, the replacement for Ruud van Nistelrooy, killed off much of the suspense hanging over the game by tapping in a left-field cross from Ibrahim Afellay in the 54th minute. Robin van Persie added the other in the 87th when he took a deep cross, shook off a defender and rifled past Bogdan Lobont.

    Lineups

    Netherlands: Maarten Stekelenburg, Khalid Boulahrouz (Mario Melchiot, 58), John Heitinga, Wilfred Bouma, Tim de Cler, Demi de Zeeuw, Orlando Engelaar, Arjen Robben (Dirk Kuyt, 61), Ibrahim Afellay, Robin van Persie, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar (Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink, 82).

    [17] Directive on Illegal Migration Approved

    18 Ιουν 2008 14:50:0

    Sources: ANA-MPA

    The Euro Deputies who approved the controversial directive on the basis of which illegal immigrants will be detained for over 18 months and will not be allowed to return to the country they had been deported from. Many believe that this measure violates human rights. 369 Euro Deputies voted for the directive, 197 against and 106 abstained.

    Controversial Directive

    An 18-month detention is longer than the present maximum period presently valid in two thirds of the 27 EU member-states. Despite the fact that EU countries can make use of shorter period of time, human rights organizations are afraid that this measure will encourage the authorities to detain more illegal immigrants.

    In its announcement, Amnesty International stresses that it believes that the approved text does not guarantee the return of illegal immigrants with safety and dignity, constituting a very bad example.

    The European Commission believes that there are over eight million illegal immigrants in the EU. Over 200,000 were arrested in the EU during the first six months of 2007 and fewer that 90,000 were deported.

    On the basis of the new directive, although children will also be detained this will cover a shorter period.

    The new text, which the 27 EU member-states must implement within two years also determines the illegal immigrants rights, among which their right to appeal against their deportation.

    Britain and Ireland, which do not belong to the Segen zone, will not put into force this directive. Denmark will decide within six months whether it will implement it or not.
