Greece was fined a total of 16,500 euros in damages for the two cases and another 2,500 euros in costs and expenses.But how extensive or emergency is the Sanitary Health in Greek Prisons, where any citizen could find himself today, even for less than 2000-3000 Euros?

THREATS TO SAFETY AND SECURITY: The U.S.

Government remains deeply concerned about the heightened threat of terrorist attacks against U.S. citizens and interests abroad. Like other countries that are members of the Schengen Agreement for free cross-border movement, Greece's open borders with other members of the Schengen zone allow for the possibility of terrorist groups entering/exiting the country with anonymity. As the first entry point into Schengen from points south and east, Greece's long coastline and many islands increase the possibility that foreign-based terrorists might try to enter Europe through its borders

Around Mediterranean: Frankenbombers!
the US Alarming Travel Alert 

By abc News,Aug.5
There are growing concerns that an al Qaeda affiliate could use a new generation of liquid explosive, currently undetectable, in a potential attack, according to two senior U.S. government officials briefed on the terror threat that has prompted the closing of nearly two dozen U.S. embassies.


Though the Transportation Security Administration has long been concerned about liquid explosives being used in potential devices -- as it was during the failed Christmas Day bombing in 2009 -- the new tactic allows terrorists to dip ordinary clothing into the liquid to make the clothes themselves into explosives once dry."It's ingenious," one of the officials said.

Another senior official said that the tactic would not be detected by current security measures.The officials said the new technique is believed to have been developed by the Yemen-based al Qaeda affiliate al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), home to notorious alleged bomb maker Ibrahim al-Asiri. Al-Asiri is suspected of being the mastermind behind several devious explosive devices including the underwear bomb and surgically implanted body bombs.

Who  trapped WHO with the greek HIV infection rates?
For the first time in history , may be, WHO admits she was wrong with the data for " Drug users self -infecting HIV virus infections" in Greece, due to distracting and   misleading  non credible figures 
The World Health Organization , had said that about half of new H.I.V. cases in Greece were “self-inflicted” as a way to get state benefits But on Tuesday morning, the World Health Organization and the group that produced the report acknowledged that the H.I.V. claim was not true.

“There is no evidence of people in Greece or anywhere else in Europe deliberately infecting themselves” , reports the NYT that Martin C. Donoghoe,said a spokesman for the health organization. It was an editing error, the group said. It apologized.

.
 
But someone who reads on Greek Reporter article,  the Health Minister's Zeta Makri statements about "suicidal behavior has increased along with injecting drug use...", in the Parliament one month ago, gets even more confused.

What really went wrong? 

The International Court of Human Rights convicted Greece because the Greek judicial system accepted as legal the dismissal of an ill employee carrying the HIV virus.

According to the decision, the dismissal consitutes discrimination and impinges upon the employee’s private and family life who is looking at a compensation. The court in Strasbourg pointed out that the Greek judicial system acted on the faulty perception that there was a danger of transmitting the disease. full story

We cannot simply look to austerity as a strategy,"

Obama said to Antonis Samaras

who  stepped in the White House on the 15th month of his government carrying with, a country damaged by it's own wings  -as never again in modern history-, Greece, and feeling grateful for the American -Greek frienship.

Even "beyond" the protocol,

Mercel's Boot on Greece's Neck  

Apparently frustrated she spends a lot of her time defending why she’s so tough on Greece – insisting on harsh austerity measures in return for her country’s backing of international bailout loans – German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Greece should never have been allowed to join the Eurozone in the first place Full story   on the foto above, by Wall Street Journal: Mercel "interacting" by a big knife, on a typical souvlaki shop, which she chose not  to be Greek, but Turkish.

A dramatic experience of a traveller on Bloomberg, as a  Comment

......"In late 2011, I needed hospital services in Greece, having been tossed off a cruise ship which did  not understand that I was mostly having a gout attack, not some contagious calamity. I was taken to a private hospital in Piraeus (Metropolitan Hospital) which was well equipped and competently staffed. ... However, in my semi-private room was another patient who had originally gone to a public hospital. The doctors there were paid 8 euros an hour (when and if they were paid), and consequently demanded bribes for everything. "You want an operation? I get 5000 Euros under the table or I won't lift a scalpel. You don't want to feel the cutting? The anesthesiologist gets 2000 euros and the nurse gets 1000." The guy had a hole in his heart, and he checked out of the public hospital because they were extorting him to death. A country with such corruption is unstable. Whatever "improvement" euphoric investors see is an illusion"
