  • [01] Govt confirms that second Paris attacker passed through island of Leros

    The Greek government confirmed on Monday that two of the terrorists responsible for the recent attacks in Paris passed through the eastern Aegean island of Leros last month amid the unprecedented -- for post-WWII Europe -- refugee crisis emanating from the Middle East.

    Alternate Minister for Civil Protection Nikos Toskas nevertheless warned against linking the refugee flows with terrorism, in statements to a private Athens radio station.

    "There were two incidents for which we cooperated with French authorities and which were identified in record time. They (terrorists) passed through Leros in early October and participated in the terror attacks in Paris," he confirmed.

    "The French asked for the information and we provided it, because there has been a good identification process on Leros and we confirmed this information. But we're talking about two cases amongst 500,000 people who have arrived since the start of the year," he added.

    [02] Eurogroup: Greece meets conditions to receive 10 bln euros for bank recap

    Greece has met conditions required to disburse up to 10 billion euros in funds to recapitalize its lenders, the Eurogroup concluded on Monday, according to a statement released earlier.

    "The Eurogroup welcomes the completion by the Greek authorities of the first set of milestones and the financial sector measures that are essential for a successful recapitalization process," the Eurogroup said.

    "The EWG agreed, on the basis of a positive assessment of the European institutions, that the policy conditions, necessary to support the transfer of funds to the HFSF out of the 10 billion euros earmarked for bank recapitalization and resolution purposes, have been met by the Greek authorities," it added, noting that the formal decision of the transfer of the funds to the HFSF will be taken by the ESM Board of Directors, following the relevant state aid decisions on a case-by-case basis.

    It also urged Greek authorities to accelerate the work with the institutions on a second and final set of milestones under the first tranche and on the measures needed to complete the first programme review. "We welcome the commitment of the Greek authorities to finalise a second set of milestones by mid-December and to take all the necessary decisions needed to remove bottlenecks on key projects (including metro, motorways, environment) co-funded by the EU and EIB," it added.

    [03] Eurobank allocates 80% of new shares to investors through book-building offer‏

    Eurobank on Monday said it allocated 80 pct of its new shares to investors that participated in a recent book-building offer.
