Theodorikakos: Security of States Precondition for Sustainable Economic Development

ATHENS – “The security of states and citizens is a precondition for the sustainable economic development and prosperity of the peoples of south-eastern Europe. That is why today we are coordinating our steps at the political, strategic and operational level for the goal of security throughout the region,” Citizen Protection Minister Takis Theodorikakos said on Wednesday attending the inter-ministerial conference in the framework of the Greek presidency of the “South East European Cooperation Process” (SEECP).

Referring to the priorities, Theodorikakos pointed out: “It is the treatment of illegal migration, organized crime, and especially human trafficking, but also drug trafficking and arms trafficking. We are joining forces in a turbulent time to bring security to our entire region.”

The inter-ministerial conference started earlier on Wednesday at the Stavros Niarchos Cultural Center, and is expected to be completed in the afternoon.

It is noted that the “South East European Cooperation Process (SEECP)” was established in 1996 and is the only form of regional cooperation, in which exclusively all the countries of Southeast Europe, as well as Kosovo, participate.


ATHENS - A Mixed Jury Criminal Appeals Court on Friday handed down sentences of life and 15 years imprisonment on the two young men found guilty of the murder and gang rape of 21-year-old student Eleni Topaloudi, imposing the same sentence as that imposed by a lower court.
