  • [01] Police bring Giotopoulos' wife in for new round of questioning

    20/07/2002 18:49:22

    The wife of suspected November 17 leader Alexandros Giotopoulos, 48-year-old French national Marie-Therese Peynaud, was called in for questioning for a second time by the anti-terrorism squad on Saturday morning.

    The woman was still being interrogated until well after noon, though police did not say whether she would then be released or kept in custody.

    [02] UK producer says Britons support return of Parthenon Marbles

    20/07/2002 18:49:16

    NEW YORK (ANA - M. Georgiadou) - This would be a favourable time for a Greek-UK agreement to transfer the Parthenon Marbles to Greece since UK public opinion and UK politicians were in favour of their return, noted British producer and commentator Willian Stewart told an international conference to discuss the ancient sculptures in New York on Friday.

    The conference was held as part of the 80th annual American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association (AHEPA) Supreme Convention, which was held here for the first time in 34 years in a show of support of the city and the victims of the September 11 terror attack.

    [03] 'Iphigenia in Aulis' at ancient theatres of Thassos and Philippi

    20/07/2002 18:49:09

    The National Theatre Company is to perform Euripides' classical ancient Greek drama ''Iphigenia in Aulis'' at the ancient theatre at Phillipi on Saturday night, and on Wednesday night at the ancient theatre on the island of Thassos.

    The plays form part of this year's Philippi-Thassos festivals, while both performances will begin at 21:30.

    [04] Two more arrested in November 17 case

    20/07/2002 18:49:02

    Greek police on Saturday made two more arrests in connection with the ongoing November 17 investigation, with two suspected members of the urban guerrilla group brought in by the anti-terrorist squad from the countryside.

    The two men, who have not been identified, are to be transported to Athens by an army helicopter, guarded by special forces police.

    [05] Giotopoulos, accused as N17 leader, hires defence lawyer

    20/07/2002 18:48:50

    Alexandros Giotopoulos, currently being held by police as the suspected leader of the terrorist organisation November 17, has asjed the lawyer Yiannis Rahiotis to defend him, sources said on Saturday.

    Rahiotis has spoken with the 58-year-old Giotopoulos, who he says continues to deny all involvement in the urban guerrilla group, though other suspected members have named him as the group's leader.

    Meanwhile, public prosecutor Ioannis Diotis has apparently resumed taking testimony from the first suspected member of the group captured by police, Savvas Xiros.

    Xiros is currently in hospital recovering from severe injuries to his eyes and hand, incurred in a botched bomb attack that led to his capture.

    The prosecutor had stopped taking testimony from Savvas Xiros a week ago so that he could undergo an eye operation.
