  • [01] Alternate Citizen Protection Min. on the report over the release of detained migrants

    ANA/MPA---Alternate Citizen Protection Minister Yiannis Panousis and the chief of the Hellenic Police asked for the resignation of officers following an order that passed around on Tuesday regarding the release of migrants from the detention centers, which caused "uproar".

    During a press conference earlier on Wednesday, Panousis said that he had not been aware of the order, which was revoked earlier today, and ordered an investigation, while the chief of the Hellenic Police asked for the resignation of the involved officers.

    The Alternate minister noted that the leadership of the ministry and the police had not been informed on that document and "a brigadier cannot take such decisions."

    He cleared out that the government's migration policy has not yet been announced and wondered how it is possible for such decisions to be taken.

    Panousis also talked about "a jungle of misinformation" and explained that for that reason he will not give interviews to the media, but he will simply brief the journalists with announcements.

    [02] German FinMin: Greece needs to fulfil the terms of the agreement before further aid is granted

    ANA/MPA---German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble is sticking to his hard line on Greece, telling a German newspaper the onus was on the government in Athens to fulfil the conditions of its bailout programme before further aid would be paid out, Reuters news agency reported.

    "Before money can flow, Athens has to show that it is meeting the agreed conditions," Schaeuble said in an interview in the Stuttgarter Zeitung on Wednesday. "How long Greece needs to fulfil the terms depends on Athens."

    Schaeuble also warned Greece's Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis against trying to change the terms of the agreement.

    "If the Greek Finance minister declares the euro group's agreement with Greece is unclear, then he is stating that against his better judgement," Schaeuble said.
