Police figures made public yesterday show a drop in robberies and burglaries which the force attributes to a reinforcement of its patrols in Attica and the provinces. A total of 6,833 bank raids and break-ins were reported in June, down from 7,265 in May and 8,773 in March. Of these raids, 3,870 were reported in Attica last month, as compared to 4,400 in May and 5,584 in March. Figures for April were not published. There was a particularly sharp drop in the number of bank robberies reported in Attica. Nine were reported in June, compared to 40 in March.
Truck drivers will vote whether they will go on with their mobilizations during a general union meeting at 12 pm today.
Their decision will be based on the meeting they had yesterday with Transports minister Dimitris Reppas.
Truckers requested tax provisions and cuts, a five year-long period of adjustment for those who recently purchased their business licenses before the full opening of their profession, and the gradual drop of the price of the license before it becomes available with no charge.
