Greece convicted on the religious oath

Posted by Abravanel, the Blog στο 22/02/2008

A couple days ago I read on the site of the Greek Helsinki Ροΐδη Εμμον�ςMonitor, a NGO on Human Rights, of a piece of news which I must admit didn’t displease me at all! The European Court of Human Rights, (whose jurisdiction is acknowledged by Greece), convicted the Greek Goverment on it’s insistence on forcing people to take a religious oath inside the courtrooms.

An interview to Alexis Tsipras/ Μια συνέντευξη στον Αλέξη Τσίπρα

Αλ�ξης Τσίπρας/ http://kapodistriako.uoa.gr/stories/094_th_01/index.php?m=2Synaspismos/SYRIZA is a greek political party which locates itself in the political space of the broader Left. Its current leader, Mr Alavanos, has decided recently to step down after a streak of positive electoral results and had indicated as his replacement a young politician named Alexis Tsipras, while also another party member Mr.Kouvelis had declared that he will run for the presidency. I thought it would be interesting to hear the views of the two candidates on a series of questions pertaining interest jewish greek interest so I asked for a written interview through the email of both candidates. Mr Tsipras has been kind enough to answer and here’s the results. :)

The interview is in greek; I apologize to my English readers but I felt it was necessary to preserve the original feel of the answers which of course were in greek, since the purpose of this interview was to make known the views of the candidates to the presidency to their jewish greek audience. Again I would like to thank Mr.Tsipras for his availability and Mrs. Panagiota M. For taking care of the email. Διαβάστε τη συνέχεια του άρθρου »
