Spies, Lies and Baby Formula

Dear reader,

This is our weekly round-up from Greece.

It was the Greek government conducting the wiretapping through EYP: a report documented it this week. The PM denied this was the case, just days ago. Intellectuals and wiretapped journalists compare now Athens with Stazi’s East Germany.

Instead of calling elections after this major scandal, the government pushes for legislation supposedly to improve EYP and the procedure for lifting the privacy of communications. The bill institutionalizes a surveillance state and utterly erodes democracy, critics say.

Greece is the European champion in fuel price hikes, a report proves. While Greeks are burdened with these and all the huge price hikes, supermarkets in the country put alarm tags on baby milk.
