  • [01] FYROM - German army - Wire report denied

    23/03/2001 17:26:50

    TETOVO (ANA) A German army press spokesman based in Kosovo on Friday denied earlier wire reports claiming that some 150 injured ethnic Albanians had been transported from neighbouring FYROM into NATO-administered Kosovo.

    In comments to the ANA, the German military official clarified that only 20 people crossed the frontier separating the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) with the German-controlled portion of Kosovo over the last 24 hours.

    Nine children and 11 adults were reported, he said, including one individual that sustained shrapnel wounds.

    FYROM interior ministry spokesman Stevo Bentarovski issued the same denial concerning the wire report.

    [02] Weather Forecast-Saturday

    23/03/2001 16:50:35

    Mainly sunny weather is forecast on Saturday, with scattered cloud forming in the north and west later in the day. Winds variable, moderate to strong. On the northern mainland, temperatures will range from 7C to 23C; on the rest of the mainland from 9C to 26C; and in the islands from 12C to 25C. Mostly sunny in Athens, with temperatures between 13C and 25C. Same in Thessaloniki, with temperatures from 10C to 23C.

    [03] ASE-close

    23/03/2001 16:24:24

    Equity prices ended the week on a firmer tone on the Athens Stock Exchange, halting a two-day decline, following a recovery in European markets on Friday.

    Traders said sentiment was affected by an ASE board decision to place under surveillance shares in six listed companies (ATEMKE, Parnassos, Doudos, Fanco, Keranis and Mouriadis). This development shifted investors' interest away from smaller capitalisation stocks towards blue chips. The news also sparked talk of a new wave of similar decisions by market authorities, which was officially denied.

    ASE chairman, Panayiotis Alexakis, said "the Stock Market supports all listed companies, the driving force of the market's growth. We inform investors over their financial condition."

    Alexakis said that market authorities would check listed companies' balance sheets twice a year (December and June) and announced that ASE has sent another 150 letters to listed companies asking for more detailed information over their financial figures.

    Shares in the IT solution, Base metals, Food and Beverage sectors attracted heavy demand, while Investment and Textiles suffered losses.

    The general index rose 0.68 percent to 3,047.75 points, off the day's lows of 3,024.03 points, with turnover a moderate 197.859 million euros, or 67.420 billion drachmas.

    The FTSE/ASE 20 index for blue chip and heavy traded stocks ended 0.75 percenthigher at 1,751.82 points, and the FTSE/ASE 40 index rose 0.50 percent to 370.36 points.

    The parallel market index for smaller capitalisation stocks ended at 332.41 points, up 1.67 percent.
