Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A Kalash­nikov as­sault ri­fle used in a shoot­ing at a bar in Pi­raeus early on Satur­day is not con­nected to any pre­vi­ous at­tacks, po­lice ex­perts said yes­ter­day fol­low­ing bal­lis­tics tests on bul­let cas­ings gath­ered from the scene. A pho­to­graph of the sus­pect, de­scribed as an Al­ba­nian man in his 30s, is ex­pected to be made avail­able by au­thor­i­ties to­day. Po­lice be­lieve the sus­pect has been in­volved in three sim­i­lar in­ci­dents in the past, re­sult­ing in one death and sev­eral in­juries. Four of the 15 peo­ple in­jured in the at­tack in the Mikroli­mano dis­trict of Pi­raeus were still in hos­pi­tal yes­ter­day and said to be in sta­ble con­di­tion.


A pro­fes­sor at the Univer­sity of Mace­do­nia in north­ern Greece has been sus­pended fol­low­ing his con­vic­tion for seek­ing un­der-the-ta­ble-pay­ments from stu­dents who wanted to pass his class. The aca­demic, also known as “the grosser” among his col­leagues, had set a price tag rang­ing from 250 euros for a 6, 300 euros for an 8 and 400 euros for a top mark (10). Greece’s Supreme Court re­cently up­held an 18-month sen­tence for bribe-tak­ing ruled by a Thes­sa­loniki court.

No meet­ing.

The left­ist SYRIZA op­po­si­tion has de­nied re­ports that leader Alexis Tsipras re­cently met with Gianna An­gelopou­los-Daskalaki, for­mer head of the Athens 2004 Olympics or­ga­niz­ing com­mit­tee, and Mar­i­anna Lat­sis of Lamda de­vel­op­ment. The re­port, which was posted on the iefimerida.gr web­site, was also re­buffed by sources close to An­gelopoulosDaskalaki. Ac­cord­ing to the re­port, the three had din­ner about 10 days ago in the up­mar­ket Kolon­aki dis­trict.

Face­book crime.

The Greek Po­lice’s cy­ber crimes unit has ar­rested a 16-year-old boy in Athens for al­legedly set­ting up a fake Face­book pro­file and post­ing in­de­cent images of un­der­age girls. Po­lice launched an in­ves­ti­ga­tion after al­le­ga­tions were made by three girls, aged be­tween 14-15, who saw their pic­tures posted on the so­cial net­work­ing site. Of­fi­cers lo­cated the IP ad­dress and con­ducted a house search, dur­ing which they con­fis­cated two hard drives that will be ex­am­ined by ex­perts. The de­tails of the 16-year-old have not been made pub­lic. The Face­book ac­count has been de­ac­ti­vated.


Air traf­fic con­trollers said yes­ter­day that they will take part in Thurs­day’s gen­eral strike, which is likely to lead to dis­rup­tions at Greek air­ports. The strike has been called by Greece’s main pri­vate sec­tor union, GSEE, and pub­lic sec­tor group ADEDY. Lo­cal me­dia are set to strike a day ear­lier to en­sure that the rally on Thurs­day is cov­ered. Strikes by the Greek Air Traf­fic Con­trollers’ As­so­ci­a­tion are of­ten pre­vented by the coun­try’s courts, which rule them il­le­gal.
