  • [01] President Pavlopoulos expresses condolences to King Philippe of Belgium over Brussels terror attacks

    President of the Hellenic Republic Prokopis Pavlopoulos on Tuesday sent to King Philippe of Belgium his deepest condolences for the families of the victims of the terrorist attacks in Brussels earlier the same day. He also expressed the Greek people's feelings of solidarity with the people of Belgium in the face of these horrendous acts, which he said were an offense against Europe and democratic values, as well as all European societies.

    [02] 11-year-old Rami and his family to be reunited in Munich after Germany gives permission

    After receiving the all-clear from Germany, the family of an 11-year-old Syrian refugee suffering from cancer have been allowed to join him in Munich, where he is undergoing treatment. Rami's mother, brothers and his cousin will leave on a flight from Thessaloniki airport on Wednesday, accompanied by an employee of the Thessaloniki regional asylum office where the family submitted an asylum request on Monday.

    Once they arrive in Munich, German authorities will take over their case.

    Rami, a boy from Syria who was in Germany with his father, has been receiving treatment Hodgkins lymphoma at Munich's University Hospital for the past four months. He urgently needs a bone marrow transplant and his immediate family, such as his mother and brothers, are the most likely donors. After the borders were closed, however, his mother and brothers were stuck in Greece, which they reached by boat from Turkey, and could not continue their journey north. They officially applied for asylum on Monday and will now travel to Germany.

    Rami's story, which was published in the international media, moved both German and Greek authorities, who took action to find them and launched fast-track procedures to reunite the family.
