ATHENS – Secretary General for Family Policy and Gender Equality Maria Syrengela on Tuesday commented on the pro-life posters that had been put up on the Athens metro and referred to the legally enshrined right of every woman to abortion.

Syrengela stressed that women’s rights to abortion are unquestionable and she supported “the decision of the Minister of Infrastructure and Transport, Kostas Karamanlis, to withdraw the specific campaign from the metro stations.”

“Information and public awareness must be based on respect, objectivity and responsibility,” she said in a statement.

The anti-abortion advertising campaign was removed from Athens’ metro system on Monday by order of Transport Minister Kostas Karamanlis, after public reaction.

SYRIZA Leader Tsipras Tables Question on Labour Rights for PM Mitsotakis

SYRIZA Leader Tsipras Tables Question on Labour Rights for PM Mitsotakis

ATHENSM – ain opposition SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras on Tuesday tabled a question in parliament for Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis entitled: “Labour Rights: A return to the ‘normality’ of the memoranda.”

Tsipras accused the government that in the last six months it has passed a series of measures that roll back labour rights, abolish measures for the protection of workers and lead to salary cuts.

The SYRIZA leader asked the prime minister how he intends to address the “increasing employer arbitrariness that has led to a negative record in layoffs in the last months.” He also asked whether Mitsotakis is going to proceed with “even the inadequate increase of the minimum wage, as he had pledged in his election campaign”.

Moreover, he asked prime minister if he intends to extend a programme to combat brain drain, in order for the 5,500 young scientists to continue to offer their services to the Greek state or whether he will “drive thousands of them to emigrate”.

Thousands of Greek cards to be replaced in travel website data breach

Thousands of Greek cards to be replaced in travel website data breach

Greece’s four systemic banks have canceled or are planning to cancel and replace up to 15,000 credit and debit cards, after the payment card data used by some of their customers on a Greek online tourist services portal was hacked.

Alpha Bank, Piraeus Bank, Eurobank and the National Bank of Greece said that although the number of customers charged with transactions they never made totaled only a few dozen cases, they decided to act proactively and gradually replace all the cards that have made even one transaction on that website in the past.

The ongoing inquiry, which is expected to be completed at the end of March, is focusing on whether the website - which books airline and ferry tickets, hotels, cars and travel insurance - adheres to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).

If it fully complies to the standards, then the investigation will seek to clarify how the leak occurred.

The banks also said they have already informed the Bank of Greece, as well as Visa and MasterCard, which have begun investigating the breach.

Bank executives said that the immediate activation of security methods will keep whatever costs they incur “manageable.”
