EIU warns Grexit still a threat

A report by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) on risks to the global economy warned on Wednesday that Greece is more likely to leave the eurozone than stay in the currency union.

Stepped up audits, checks lead to whopping hike in verified tax evasion in Greece in 2017

The development, of course, doesn't mean that tax evasion increased as a whole, but only that the new independent authority has increased efforts at curbing what's often been described as an endemic problem for the Greek state.

To paraphrase, and please enlighten me on the actual origin;

There are only two constants that affect everybody. Death, and Taxes. Unless you're Greek.

Criminal network supplying identity and travel documents dismantled in Greece
More than 900 passports and identity cards seized. 620 found to be recorded on European databases as lost or stolen.

On 25 February the Organised Crime Unit of the Hellenic Police arrested 11 members of an international organised crime group involved in stealing and falsifying travel documents to facilitate for profit the movement of illegal third-country nationals through Europe.

During the course of this Europol-supported investigation, police officers identified members of the criminal organisation and the locations used to conceal the documents. The group stole documents from pedestrians, passengers on public transport and parked vehicles. The network also cooperated with others who illegally obtained travel documents belonging to third-country nationals. They then sold the documents on at prices based on the type of identity document, the country of issue and matching personal likeness of the original owner. Members of the group residing in France often forwarded genuine lost or stolen travel documents using international courier companies.

During an extensive operation in Attica, Greece, 11 members of the network were arrested, six of them Algerian nationals, three Syrian, one Tunisian and one from Palestine. Seven house searches were carried out and 939 travel documents were confiscated. 620 of these were recorded as lost or stolen in European databases. EUR 30000 in cash, a vehicle, forgery equipment, fraudulent documents, stamps, receipts for financial transactions and a large number of digital devices were also seized.
