TOURIST DEATH

Charges against three nightclub staff upgraded Three nightclub employees were yesterday charged with being accessories to the murder of 20-year-old Australian tourist Doujon Zammit on Myconos last week. A magistrate on Syros upgraded the charges against the three after receiving the testimony of Zammit’s 18-year-old cousin. The three suspects remain out on bail but the magistrate is expected to set dates today for them to be questioned again, after which they could be remanded in custody. A 25-year-old man, who was a bouncer at the Tropicana nightclub on Paradise beach, has been charged with murder and is in custody. CHAMPIONS LEAGUE Greens through to next round Panathinaikos grabbed a 0-0 draw at Dinamo Tbilisi last night to advance to the third qualifying round of soccer’s Champions League with a 3-0 aggregate score. Despite its rather poor performance in Georgia, the Greek side defended its first-leg advantage successfully and finished the game with a man’s advantage, as Dinamo’s Nikoloz Pirtskhalava received his marching orders for a second yellow card in the 77th minute. Brazil captain Gilberto Silva (pictured right) made his first appearance with Panathinaikos as he was introduced as a second-half substitute. Teenage crash A 16-year-old girl was killed in a car crash on a country road near Thessaloniki yesterday, prompting police to arrest the 17-year-old who was driving the vehicle without a license. The schoolgirl was pulled dead from the wreckage of the car, which rolled over after the driver lost control. Three other teenagers were injured in the incident. The 44-year-old father of the driver was arrested on charges of allowing someone without a license to use his car and failing to provide guidance to a minor. Greek law requires someone to be 18 before they can get a driver’s license. None of those involved was named. Flakes out Greece’s food safety watchdog said yesterday that it has ordered the recall of a batch of breakfast cereal called «1 Frosted Flakes» after finding that it contained high levels of deoxynivalenol, a myotoxin. The Hellenic Food Authority (EFET) recommended that any consumers who have bought the product, whose batch number is 0208A10 and which has a September 2009 expiry date, should return it. Border arrest Police arrested a 54-year-old Turkish man at the Evzones border crossing in northeastern Greece yesterday. French authorities had issued a European arrest warrant for the suspect, who is wanted for a range of financial crimes.
