  • [01] Debate on Justice system to be held in parliament plenary

    A debate on the Justice system will start in the plenary of the Greek parliament on Tuesday, at 19.00.

    Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras in a letter to the president of the Parliament Nikos Voutsis asked for this debate because as he said the public opinion has been lately poisoned by groundless complaints concerning the government policy on justice.

    Defence Minister and junior coalition government partner Panos Kammenos stressed that it is high time the Greek people found out about hundreds of millions transferred to foreign banks and other cases of embezzlement.

    [02] Two ferries with more than 520 refugees arrive at Pireaus on Tuesday

    "Nissos Mykonos" ferry carrying 140 refugees and migrants from Mytilene and 357 from Samos islands docked early in the morning on Tuesday at the port of Piraeus.

    After the arrival of the 497 refugees and migrants of "Nissos Mykonos" the current number of the persons hosted at the facilities provided by the portuary authorities is totalled to 5,247, according to the newest data.

    Later in the morning is expected to arrive also at Piraeus the ferry "blue star1" with 131 refugees and migrants from Mytilene.

    [03] Government is currently preparing laws on asylum requests with EC

    The legal framework which will be used in the asylum application procedures which form part of the EU-Turkey deal is currently being drafted, sources from the Asylum Agency told ANA-MPA on Monday.

    The formulation of the framework which is being prepared in cooperation with the European Commission, will also determine the committees that will be formed and the Appellate Body that will examine asylum requests. Any announcements will be made after this procedure has been completed, the sources added.
