Greece Cancels October 28 Parades Due to Pandemic

ATHENS —  Government spokesman Stelios Petsas said that due to the pandemic and at Prime Minister's decision the pupils and army parades will not be held on October 28.

In terms of the developments in the migration issue, Petsas said that "one of the government's main policy axes is the migration problem and the interception of the flows and the control fo the involved NGOs in illegal activities. For this reason the government has drawn up an NGOs registry declaring its determinatiοn to support the organisation that are offering positive work from those that are parasites".

In this framework and following a lenghty and systematic effort, the Greek police in cooperation with the National Intelligence Service and the Coast Guard located four NGOs with a European identity, thirty three members and two more foreign nationals that against their declared goals, they οrchestrated illegal trafficking of migrants from the Turkish coasts to the Greek islands and for their convienience they made known the positions of the coast guard and navy vessels that were in the region, something that involves them in espionage activities against Greece".

Closing his briefing, he said that the draft State Budget was tabled in parliament on Monday adding that is being drawn up in an environment of unprecedented uncertainty due to the pandemic.

He also announced Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis schedule.

On Monday at 19:30, he will attend the presentation of the new company identity of PPC
