He said that US companies were soon expected to show their interest in the Greek market, which they viewed as fast growing and with a healthy outlook linked to its anticipated entry into the euro zone.

    [09] THESSALONIKI, EU, YUGOSLAVIA DISCUSS ROUTE, RAIL AXIS X

    Web Posted: 13:27 GMT+2
    Thessaloniki, 26/11/1999 (MPA) Officials from the seven states aligned on the map of the road and rail X Axis, as well as representatives from the European Commission and the United Nations are presently in Thessaloniki, joined by observers from Yugoslavia, Germany and Turkey, in order to examine the re-operation of the route which links central Europe to Thessaloniki.

    The talks, chaired by the Greek Ministry of Transportation secretary general George Maniatis, also feature the participation of officials from Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, FYROM, Hungary and Slovenia, as well as the president of the Thessaloniki Port Authority.

    The meeting will assess the need of technical support to the said Axis, which amounts to 2,239 kilometers, before the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki is assigned both its technical support, as well as the discovery of project funds.

    The Axis' main part, measuring 1,387 kilometers, originates at Thessaloniki's port, and travels through Skopje, Belgrade, Zagreb, Ljubljana, before ending at Salzburg, Austria, while auxiliary roads extend to Bulgaria and Hungary.

    Following the end of the Kosovo conflict, this is the first forum to which Yugoslavia has been invited to participate, with the attendance of EU and UN officials.

    [18] SEVERAL MONTHS MAY PASS FOR FINAL DECISION ON OCALAN'S LIFE

    Web Posted: 20:27 GMT+2
    Ankara, 26/11/1999 (MPA) The upholding of the death sentence on Kurdish rebel leader Abdullah Ocalan by Turkey's appeals court yesterday, on treason and separatism charges, is just one step in the process, as it could be several months before the final decision on his fate is taken, the French news agency AFP reported.

    Lawyers for Ocalan will lodge a request with the president of the appeal court, Vural Savas, for the decision to be reconsidered, one of the defense team Dogan Erbas told AFP. Mr. Savas must accept or refuse the request within about a week.

    If Mr. Savas accepts, the appeal court must deliberate again. If he refuses, as looks more likely as he recommended the court uphold the sentence, then Ocalan's legal options within Turkey are exhausted.

    His lawyers will then bring the case before the European Court of Human

    Rights at Strasbourg. "We will base our request on the principle that the death penalty must be abolished and we will ask the European Court to call on Turkey to suspend the decision to execute until the court has given its judgment",' Mr. Erbas explained.

    Turkey is not a signatory to the protocol for the abolition of the death penalty "but must respect it as a member of the European family" he said.

    Even though Turkey is not bound to await the decision of the European Court before going ahead with the sentence, Turkish leaders have let it be known that they are prepared to take their time and wait for the ruling.

    Alternatively the case will be put before the Turkish parliament, starting with the parliamentary justice commission, which will right away submit it to the full assembly for a vote.

    Since 1984 the commission has kept all cases on hold and no death sentence has been carried out, thus imposing a virtual moratorium on the death penalty.

    If the death sentence is passed by parliament the decision then passes to Turkish President Suleylan Demirel to ratify it. If he disagrees he can return the case to parliament to show his dissatisfaction. However if parliament reiterates its decision the president must then ratify it.

    [19] TURKEY RAISES TAXES TO GENERATE RECONSTRUCTION REVENUE

    Web Posted: 13:27 GMT+2
    Ankara, 26/11/1999 (MPA) The Turkish parliament passed a controversial bill today introducing new taxes to generate revenues for the reconstruction of northwestern Turkey following two massive earthquakes in the last three months.

    As the French news agency AFP reported, the bill was first submitted to parliament in August, just days after a massive tremor devastated Turkey's industrial heartland killing some 20,000 people.

    But the government eventually withdrew the legislation following harsh criticism from the public, business circles and even members of coalition parties.

    The bill was reintroduced in parliament on Wednesday and more levies were added to its final version, which was endorsed this morning after a night- long marathon of heated debates.

    The law, passed despite stern opposition, foresees a five to 10 percent increase on income and corporate taxes, double taxation on real estate and vehicles, extra levies on annual earnings of more than 23,500 dollars and a 25 percent levy on cell phone bills.

    Web Posted: 11:27 GMT+2
    Brussels, 26/11/1999 (MPA) The European Union's High Representative for foreign affairs and security Javier Solana warned Turkey that its membership application could be jeopardized if "positive measures" are not taken over the death sentence against Kurdish rebel leader Abdullah Ocalan.

The ruling came ahead of the European Union summit in Helsinki on December 10-11, where Ankara hopes to have its candidacy status confirmed.

    Mr. Solana said Turkey had to take "positive measures" over Mr. Ocalan's case "because it will be very difficult for Turkey to become a member of the family of European countries if the death sentence against Mr. Ocalan was executed.
