"After the charges by Minister of Communications and Works and the
Chief of Police, the Attorney General of the Republic has concluded

Helios in order to attain documents or any other evidence which
might be useful in the investigation of the possibility of penal
offenses", Marios Karoyan, director of the President's Press Office
