  • [01] Tusk in contact with top EU officials to hold meeting on Greece

    ANA/MPA---The Greek issue is not officially included in the agenda of the EU summit which starts on Thursday, a spokesman for the European Council president Donald Tusk said on Wednesday, adding that Tusk is in constant contact with top EU officials to hold a meeting on the Greek issue in the margins of the summit.

    The spokesman did not reveal further details on the meeting and its participants. However, he said that the implementation of the latest Eurogroup decisions and the general situation in Greece will be among the issues to be discussed.

    Asked whether the issue of Greece's immediate cash needs will be discussed, he refused to make any comment.

    [02] Justice Minister on provisions against bullying

    ANA/MPA---Justice Minister Nikos Paraskevopoulos, on Wednesday in statements to MEGA TV, made clarifications on the new provisions against bullying that will be included in the bill for the abolition of the maximum-security prisons, saying that the existing Criminal Code could not provide for cases where the victim was an adult.

    The current legislation concerned cases of victims under the age of 17 who have suffered injuries after continuous strident behaviour, Paraskevopoulos said adding that it could not provide for adults, even elderly people who are victims of bad behaviour.

    He also underlined that current legislation did not refer to tough behaviour that caused psychological problems and affected health in general.

    Referring to bullying at schools, he said that "possibly more provisions may be needed, this is a specific weakness of the regulation in the Criminal Code."

    Regarding the abolition of high-security prisons, he said that this kind of prison is abolished but that does not mean that security is abolished.
