#Greece’s lawmakers should withdraw a draft surveillance law, debated in parliament today, that lacks effective privacy & human rights safeguards.

If the government won’t press pause on this risky bill, parliament should.

More on the bill from @hrw here:… Image
@hrw The bill is a flawed attempt to respond to a spyware scandal described as the "Greek Watergate" that has shaken Greek politics as it was revealed by investigative media outlets that dozens prominent figures were targeted by secret services and spyware.… Image
@hrw The surveillance scandal began with revelations in November 2021 that Greece’s intelligence service, EYP, had wiretapped the phone of @Malichudis, a freelance reporter.

Here's a @we_are_solomon explaining what happened:…

What do 🇨🇴Colombia, 🇬🇷Greece, and 🇬🇧the United Kingdom have in common?
They’re 3 of 9 countries with low taxes you’d never expect.
Let’s help you go where you’re treated best:….
#lowtax #taxfree #WealthManagement
🇬🇧In the #UK, if your taxable income is over £150,000, you’ll have to pay 45% income tax.

But your foreign-sourced income may be tax-exempt if you are a non-domiciled resident in the UK. You will have remittance of paying taxes during the first 15 years (soon will be 5)
🇮🇪#Ireland's tax system is based on residence, so there is no tax on worldwide income for nonresidents (if you decide you don’t want to live in Ireland during your residence). However, getting permanent residence in Ireland means you will be taxed on Irish-sourced income

جسم فروشی کا کاروبار (Business of Prostitution)

 "جسم فروشی" کا آغاز کب اورکہاں سےھوا اور یہ ایک منظم کاروبار کیسےبنا؟
یہ آج کل یاغریب ممالک کا ایجاد کردہ ڈھکا چھپا بزنس نہیں بلکہ زمانہ قدیم کےقوانین وضوابط کیساتھ ایک مکمل کاروبارتھا اور
یونان اسکا Pioneer ھے۔
یونانی شاعر،قانون دان اورسٹیٹس مین سولن (Solon, 630 BC- 569 BC)ہی وہ پہلاشخص تھاجس نےجسم فروشی کاپہلا"چٹکلہ" (طرب آب)قائم کیا۔ یونان میں ان عورتوں کو "پورنائی" کہاجاتاتھا۔
تمام موءرخین اس پرمتفق ہیں کہ سولن نےاسےایک منافع بخش کاروباراور روزگارکاوسیلہ بنایا۔
شروع میں یونان کے مختلف شہروں میں جسم فروشی کے اڈے کھولے گئےاور مذہبی عورتوں کو عصمت دری کیلئے رکھا گیا۔
اڈوں کا مالک قبیلہ یا قبیلے کاحاکم ہی ھوتا تھا۔ لوگوں کی بڑی تعداد نےاس طرف رجوع کیا جو زیادہ تر غریب تھی۔ان عورتوں کی عموماً40سال کی عمر تک وفات و جاتی تو انکی اولادیں یہ جگہ

Good Evening.
I wanted for a long time to write about our NATO ally and its stance on the #WWII.
Like today #Turkey's neutral stance over the #UkraineRussianWar is something that the Word "moral" is out from their vocabulary.

Christmas 1942:
Greece, on its knees under the Nazi Occupation, is experiencing the worst famine since the time of Antiquity, with thousands dying of starvation in most major urban centers. Turkey since June 1941 had signed a "friendship pact" with Nazi Germany, and a year later
(June 1942) a commercial agreement to supply the Nazi forces with the metals necessary for the manufacture of weapons (especially chromium).
Those who follow the course of Turkey over time from the movement of the Young Turks (1908) until today, consider that all of Turkey's

#THREAD Greek journalist Tasos @telloglou revealed that he & three more journalists (@e_triantafillou, @nasoskook, & @Chondrogiannos) investigating the spying scandal in 🇬🇷, were all under surveillance.

2️⃣ According to @telloglou, 🇬🇷 secret service agency was using mobile network antennas to track the movements of the journalists through their cell phones and find out who their sources were.

3️⃣ “In June a source from the intelligence service informed me that E. Triantafyllou, T. Chondrogiannos, T. Koukakis & I were ‘being linked’ with tens of possible sources based on the mobile network antennas, to check on ‘whether we are meeting’”. Image

I was on a study trip in #Greece last week, learning among other things about a human rights success story: how the violent, neo-Nazi Golden Dawn group was toppled.

🧵 Image
I’d read about Golden Dawn before, so I was aware of how they’d emerged to capitalize on rising hatred in Greece, exacerbated by intolerant political rhetoric and hostile government policies scapegoating unpopular and powerless groups, like migrants.…
And I knew about their winning seats in parliament and the trial that sunk them in a historic decision in 2020.…

On the negatives: 1) data security 2) network stability 3) network accessibility

With this article,#Greece interprets that Türkiye has renounced its rights over the other islands in the #Aegean.

1-The discussions on Article 16 until it took its final form at the Lausanne Conference show that this is not the case. Image
2- Had Türkiye renounced its rights on the islands, islets and rocks left by the Ottoman in the #Aegean, the said lands would not have remained in #Greece and its sovereignty would have been uncertain.

Because even the name of #Greece is not mentioned in Article 16! Image
For this reason, it's tragicomic for #Greece to argue that it is the owner of the islands by citing Article 16 of Lausanne.
The only thing that is certain in this article is that no other islands,islets or rocks have been ceded to Greece,except those that have been ceded by name! Image

All the news and a few views of #Russia's illegal war in #Ukraine in one handy place.

Just 6 days remain to help our #Ukraine fundraiser.
We're at £4,500. Can you help us reach £5k today?…
If you need a recap on Friday's news and events, here's the start of the thread:

#RussiansGoHome #SlavaUkraini

An important point made by the British MOD today.

The criticism from some about #Russia's war effort is very much controlled and serves a purpose.
For a start everything Kadyrov does is for Putin - his father was a traitor who switched sides in the Chechen wars.

#Turkey distorting a 100 year old treaty to once again make empty threats of war against #Greece is in the finest tradition of #Putin (and before him #Goebbels). A quick primer and debunking of #Erdogan's inane claims about the #Lausanne treaty 1/13
Context: at the end of the #Greco-Turkish War of 1919-1922, the Greek army, abandoned by its Western Allies and with the #Soviet #Russians openly aiding Turkey, left #Anatolia and retreated to the Greek islands of the Northern Aegean 2/13
The treaty of #Lausanne of 1923 settled matters between the belligerents. The Greek state gave up territories and populations that had been Greek for thousands of years in Asia Minor, #EasternThrace, and #Constantinople, in return for lasting peace and reconstruction 3/13

1/10 A high-level Turkish delegation travelled to #Tripoli yesterday and signed a series of MoUs with the #GNU.
This latest development introduces a new episode to the Libyan crisis that will have repercussions on national, regional, and international levels. 🧵
2/10 The MoUs were kept secret, with only #Turkey & Dabaiba’s inner circle aware of the agreements. Many ministers within the GNU found out last minute without having access to the text itself.
Dabaiba’s foreign allies such as the UAE have also been kept in the dark.
3/10 Dabaiba, like his predecessor Sarraj, signed the agreements out of despair to ensure Turkey’s role as a strategic ally to stay in power.

For him, the deal is essential as he thinks only Turkish can help him contain and manage his alliance of armed groups in Tripoli.
