Greek Red Cross says no notification yet over its alleged suspension by Geneva-based IRC

The Greek affiliate of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement (IRC), the Hellenic Red Cross, on Thursday stressed that it has not received any official notification by the venerable Geneva-based organization of its suspension.

Numerous press reports in Athens earlier in the day reported that the IRC was suspending its Greece affiliate, ostensibly over allegations of past mismanagement and failure by the Hellenic Red Cross to revise its charter towards making the organization more open to its volunteer force, among others, as well as holding elections for its board.

In a hastily released press statement, the Hellenic Red Cross noted that "we'd like to inform that we have not received any decision so far."
