OPINION

As Greeks of the diaspora, philhellenes and students of ancient and Byzantine culture, we are greatly dismayed by the recent developments jeopardizing the preservation of the important remains of Late Antique and Byzantine Thessaloniki revealed in the course of constructing the city’s metro.


SOCIETY

On Thursday I wrote to a confined list of personal contacts, stating my reasons for ceasing to write for the English edition of Kathimerini. 

SOCIETY

As a recipient of my regular “Eye of the Xenos” column in the English edition of Kathimerini, you will be aware that I have been contributing to Kathimerini since January 2018.


OPINION

We read the editorial published in Kathimerini’s Sunday edition on June 9, 2019 by Costas Simitis, titled “The Coastal Zone – EEZ – Continental Shelf – Take Caution Now,” with special respect and consideration given the former prime minister’s deep knowledge of the topic and the recent, strong US government policy statements on these issues.

OPINION

The assumptions being given about the Akkuyu NPP project do not reflect the actual situation. And on behalf of Rosatom let me deliver Rosatom’s statement on this point.

OPINION

Nearly 10 years ago, as a professor of Classics and Ancient History at the University of Western Australia, I was invited to allow my name to be added to the signatories of a letter that was being sent to US President Barack Obama, protesting the erection of a statue of a horseman in Skopje – a statue that was obviously a larger copy of a statue of Alexander the Great.

OPINION

Dear Sir, Professor Vasilis Sarafidis in his article of October 22 on “The tragedy of Greek statistics” describes well the deliberate falsification of Greek fiscal data between 1997 and 2009, which he says “played a key role in the country’s bankruptcy in 2010 and has hampered its recovery from the crisis to date.” 

OPINION

Reference is made to an article published by Kathimerini on 16 June 2018, entitled “EASO probe hampers asylum procedures.” The article makes various inaccurate and misleading assertions that the European Asylum Support Office (EASO) would like to correct.

OPINION

Dear Mr Tsipras, I am aware you have more pressing issues that need your attention, however, I feel the need to express some concerns and advocate for the average Greek citizen who just wants to make an honest living with dignity and humility.

On behalf of the American Hellenic Institute (AHI), I take strong exception to Alexis Papachelas’s December 20 column, “Hellenism in America at a crossroads.”

I write to express my concerns on the apparent lack of commitment for the implementation of judicial verdicts in Greek courts by the legislative and executive powers.
