April 19, 2018

ATHENS – The tender for the issue of new Greek identity cards in line with stricter EU standards is a matter of days, Alternate Citizen Protection Minister Nikos Toskas said in parliament on Thursday.

The technical specifications have been completed and the invitation to EU companies to participate in the tender is “a matter of days not weeks,” he said. Toskas explained that the issue of the new identity cards was necessary following an EU decision aiming to improve controls and guard against terrorist and extremist threats.


ATHENS — A Greek helicopter pilot was sentenced to life in prison Monday for killing his British-Greek wife in their home on the outskirts of Athens and trying to mislead police for weeks by claiming she was killed by intruders in a brutal house invasion.
