ARRESTS AND EXILES: The parliamentary deputies S. Allamanis, N. Zorbas, P. Tzannetakis, G. Tzatzanis, E. Petsos and S. Kothris tabled a proposal in Parliament yesterday to the interior and justice ministers asking for the real reasons why mass arrests had been made over the past few days, since there is no evidence that the people concerned had broken any laws. They ask why fundamental laws have been violated by organs of the state and why unacceptable measures were being taken. They said that the escape of 27 prisoners (communists from the prisons of Vourla and Piraeus on July 17), which was being cited as partly the reason for the arrests, could be used as justification. GREECE-TURKEY: Greece has decided not to participate in the Izmir International Fair because Turkey has not paid its trade debts, according to an announcement. FOTOPOULOS-ILIOPOULOS: The Fotopoulos-Iliopoulos Company is entering its ninth week of performances of the topical satire «Zero Unemployment» at the Samartzi Theater. Tickets cost 6 drachmas for afternoon performances and 10 drachmas in the evening.
