ATHENS – An amendment facilitating the entrance of foreign entrepreneurs from non-EU countries to Greece was tabled in parliament on Tuesday. The amendment is attached to the foreign ministry’s draft law entitled “Regulations for the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union” and introduces a new type of entry visa, the Airport Transit Visa (ATV).

A report by the General Accounting Office on the amendment said that it also establishes a “Business Invitation” form for extending an invitation to a third-country national with the assumption of responsibility/provision of accommodation for the purposes of granting a Schengen visa. This will be used as a supporting document for examining requests for a business/professional visa, in the case that interested third country citizens are not able to certify the specific requirements by themselves.

The amendment also foresees penalties (fines and imprisonment) for persons that invite a foreign national using a “Business Invitation” with aim of violating migration law and the provisions of Schengen.

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.
