Government spokesman Dimitris Reppas said yesterday that Athens is examining information published in a front-page Athens newspaper article yesterday, which points to the involvement of Turkish saboteurs in several forest fires and bombings around Greece over the past few years.
The article, published in Sunday's "Eleftherotypia", quotes what the newspaper termed a confidential report by the "investigation department" in the Turkish prime minister's office, citing secret ties between the official Turkish state and that country' s large criminal underworld during the premiership of Tansu Ciller.
"All of this (information) is being investigated carefully along with other information that has come to our attention in the past," Mr. Reppas said.
