Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Trib­utes poured in yes­ter­day after the death on Sunday of vet­eran con­ser­va­tive and two-time Greek pres­i­dent Con­stanti­nos Stephanopou­los, seen in this 2002 photo as he ar­rives at the Greek Ortho­dox Arch­dio­cese in Syd­ney, Aus­tralia. An Athens hos­pi­tal state­ment said the 90year-old died from ‘com­pli­ca­tions of pneu­mo­nia.’ Known as a mod­er­ate, he served two terms as pres­i­dent from 1995 to 2005. Prime Min­is­ter Alexis Tsipras de­scribed him as ‘a moral man with a lofty vi­sion,’ while Pres­i­dent Prokopis Pavlopou­los said he was ‘a model of self­less, dig­ni­fied and con­sis­tent ser­vice for the pub­lic good.’
