Update October 2014, ACTUP HELLAS

Updated information with reference to a previous article on NGO integrity :


Just a quick update surrounding the court cases exposing the corruption within ACTUP ΔΡΑΣΕ HELLAS as per a previous post on here to help forewarn the community as to the legitimacy and perils of people who manipulate NGO’s for their own gain and so people know to be cautious in who they get involved with. More details shall follow however after being in court for what seemed like an eternity I felt it better just to highlight a few of the most significant findings.

Myself and the two others have been involved in a six year fight to expose the malpractice and financial corruption of this NGO whereby the president and another member of the Board of Directors illegally claimed to be Doctors to gain funding, status and position within the HIV/Aids sector whilst they elected themselves in, falsified signatures and fraudulently provide documents to achieve their goals.

corruption, ACTUP HELLAS, ACT UP HELLAS, ACT UP, ACTUP DRASE HELLAS, fraud, theft, embezzlement, lies, malpractice

Rights, high on the agenda, but only when preventing people from having any. . .

Shortly after summer 2014 their case against us for ‘slander’, exposing them as what they were went to court. We were acquitted and the case details were recommended to be passed on for further investigation of the details exposing the President of the NGO.

Justice, fight, awareness, corruption, Athens, Greece

Themisis and Dike protect integrity and order wherever possible, but  often at a price.

Another case against myself for supposed forgery of my employment contract and for theft of work materials was judged to have been nothing more than a poor attempt by the NGO to persecute myself for standing up to their abusive and inhumane treatment of their staff, their volunteers and the people to whom they lied and robbed as they sought to use the case to divert people from the facts exposed in 2009.

Ongoing cases by ΖΔΟΕ (for serious financial crimes), ΥΔΑΣ for financial crime and others all stand to shed light on nearly 20 years of deliberate manipulation, malpractice and systematic abuse of Greek, EU and private sector resources.
The similarities within this sector and the facts surrounding the many injustices within this domain only reinforce the harsh reality of who is to blame for the misery people featured below suffer for.

Using the cause as a smokescreen and then appearing to defend the problems created seems all to familiar a story.

Ruins, corruption, malpractice, systematic abuse, CDC, Zoe Maroudi, awareness, HIV, Aids

A documentary exposing the case whereby a number of women were publicly exposed as having HIV, and yet they collaborate with NGO’s guilty of everything which they claim to be fighting to expose. . . !?

One hand creates the problem whilst the other offers support, all attached to the same Government Body who employs or allows these people to carry this out.

Nurse, rubber gloves, anal probe, lube, pucker up

A helping hand is always nearby

When approached all knew of this and yet for 15 -20 years did nothing, and worst still when given the facts 6 years ago, still allowed it to continue.
Persecuting people such as myself for standing up to those who abuse the sector was clearly a higher priority than helping rid the sector of the cancer to which it feeds on.

Corruption, fight, awareness, justice

The saga is never ending, but fight we must

Maybe now this has been officially exposed people will help raise awareness and prompt NGO’s and people connected with this to act more responsibly, if not to convince people of their genuine validity, but to give people peace of mind to their integrity for their own sake, if not those to whom they seek help from, or offer help to. . .

Prosecutor rejected complaint report of five HIV-positive women


The recent case against the people responsible for abusing the rights of the women featured in Ruins (documentary by Zoe Maroudi) was apparently (no surprise), a failed quest.

As predictably as they appeared, the very same people in this ‘self righteous’ sector which for over 20 years offered little short of corruption, malpractice and cover-ups, all managed to come out shouting about this (their latest project) and latest injustice, one by all accounts, they oversaw, allowed and had potentially all had their grubby little fingers in from the start.

How splendid that opportunity must have looked from way up on that moral high ground that they all bask in. Is it no surprise that this fell at a time when votes were needed nationally, and half the people involved were all sucking up to the latest Political cheque book with change imminent…

Yippie ki yay mutha-f*cka’s. . . Publicity, more funding, prestige at the expense of some poor women who were thrown to the wolves, and some backslapping all round. Well done.

How bad would it look for HIV/Aids and the people suffering from it being hung out to dry for say, Politics? The whole thing stank of career opportunity anyway, and after contacting the maker of the Documentary, friends and associates all ‘supposedly connected with this cause’, who mysterious that no one would dare tackle the issues at to why and how this came to be? Issues that called into question, if not the people involved in this outrage, but certainly people who could, should and better be doing more to STOP it happening in the first f*cking place, and not using it as a springboard for ego and opportunity.
Looking for blame? Hmmm. I’ll give them a clue shall I!

Many work, worked with, and some even contributed to the National HIV/Aids plan for Greece throughout their history within this sector (20+ years in some cases), many know of the failings, the corruption and the problems that would lead to this type of scenario in the first place, and what did they do about it.
Exactly. Some of these people sit on, govern and either run or participate in the NGO committee’s run by the CDC, AND, some also work for it, as well as being involved in NGO’s which present a conflict of interests as well. I know, I met with most of them in 2009.

The shocking truth is that many saw nothing wrong with this type of behaviour anyway. Wrong. Some knew of it all along, and one walked out as he was appalled we questioned the validity of the system and the people sat round he table.

I won’t name names but the list makes for good reading, and the details about what they knew is even better. something that someone who would be making a documentary trying to help the sector would look into, wouldn’t you think?

Apart from the general malpractice and disrespect some of these people and Organisations have shown to the people they are supposedly there to protect, many selectively isolate and ignore these ‘issues’ as nothing more than threats to their careers, so a documentary and high profile game changer needed to come from somewhere, HIV/Aids wasn’t getting half the publicity they liked, plus for some, the pharmaceutical payoff’s wouldn’t pay off all their summer houses would they?

I know this is the case in one particular case, as I’ve been involved in epxosing them for 6 years now.

So, leading on. . .
Having myself and those who fought with me to expose these people, been falsely sued for refusing to commit fraud at the bequest of the man featured in the case below, and for exposing him as what he is, nothing more than malignant and spiteful criminal scum, the court case which he tried to use against us as a smokescreen for his activity is to be further used to expose the rest of the malpractice as already covered.

Here below, (featured) we have the President of ACT UP HELLAS, or ACTUP ΔΡΑΣΕ HELLAS or however they are using their name this year (as to avoid being linked to the previous criminal incarnations), Kostadis Kaburakis who was exposed (2009) as being involved in deliberate Fraud against the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (ΥΔΑΣ), since it’s been uncovered that he illegally pretended to be a Doctor alongside another member of the board of Directors whilst being employed by ΚΕΕΛΠΝΟ, to gain funding and to gain access to Andreas Syggros Hospital’s medical patient data etc – discussing the morality surrounding the unfortunate women who had their own confidentiality abused by the state, ie KEELPNO and the authorities. . .

Much more about that will follow after the latest court cases come to a close, but that’s about as hypocritical as you could even dare to make up, even if you had a really crazy imagination. But that aside, only serves to highlight further the genuine and real problem with the people involved in this sector. You can’t help. It’s like asking Pol Pot to help you with overcrowding, or Edward Scissorhands to give you a Brazilian, you just don’t do it.

On the one hand, why not have an expert on illegally gaining access to HIV/Aids data through masquerading as a Doctor lead the way? Why not have one of the many NGO’s (MKO’s) who have lied, covered up and worked alongside this practice for over 20 years, help share the fame and misfortune of those the very Health sector they plundered whilst stealing and abusing the resources they could get away with looked on in awe . . .
It all makes sense does it not?

The state, which consists of NGO’s working in this sector, who have staff employed by the Greek CDC, who are involved in the data/client human right violations as covered by the documentary Ruins, were by very nature, the very same people dealing with these women on some level anyway, so let’s start by having them all rally around providing help having done all they could to illegally acquire private and personal information which miraculously makes its way into the public domain to help raise awareness of serious issues to which they all created – in the first place.

One hand creates the problem just in time for the other hand to pretend to help.

Now don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of good people involved in this plight, you can’t question the genuine desire to help of many, however it makes you wonder who’s telling who what.

If you ask a criminal if he’s a criminal, he’s not likely to say yes is he.
Give him a position, some authority and allow him to falsify and make up a good story and those below only serve to help the problem rather than the cause they set out to help.

It’s not a case of the blind leading the blind, but who the f*ck’s leading anyone nowhere fast. . .


Originally posted on I can't relax in Greece:



The calvary for the pilloried HIV-positive women is endless. A few days ago, the prosecutor rejected the lawsuit that five of the HIV-positive women, who suffered persecution and were insulted in May 2012, while eleven of them were trialed for misdemeanor on March 28, 2014.

The lawsuit was submitted by the five women, along with four NGOs that support HIV- positive individuals: the Centre for Life, the PRAKSIS health clinic in Athens, the Positive Voice and ACTUP Hellas.

“This decision sends a clear message that there was nothing blamable in this vile operation and that vulnerable people’s forced tests constitute an accepted practice in our country today”, as characteristically mentionned in a relevant announcement published at the social networking site of the documentary “Ruins- Chronicle of an HIV witch-hunt” by Zoe Mavroudi.

The content of the lawsuit is about the illegal violence, the inhuman and degrading…

Dork Spring Tan Buttcreak, or is it Vorsprung durch Technik?

Weather, Petroula, sexy, net, cheeky, greece, καιρός

It’s rare in Greece we ever need to care about the weather, and here’s one of the reasons why.

It’s only on days like today whereby being British comes into it’s own, and not just because of Petroula‘s arse either!

Quite frankly, the only weather I concern myself with is whether or not she’d wriggle free of the ropes I’d tied her to the bed with, in which case I wouldn’t care if the world was coming to an end let alone rained.

Incidentally and for the record, it’s not a current image, it’s not EVER likely to be just *(6 – 7) degrees here at this time of year, EVER, plus I’m not sure if Petroula‘s still doing the weather for ERT, ideally she should be still be trying to wriggle free. . .but that’s another story altogether.

* – If your like me and a typically voracious male, it may take you several attempts at the picture before you even see the 6 & 7, or realise in fact that there is also a map representing Greece in the background.

So, today was truly glorious here in Athens. Sunny, not a cloud in the sky and probably in excess of 20+ degrees. For the first time this year I had my first true opportunity to sit in the sun and enjoy my morning coffee before I felt exposed to a worrying level of sunshine, far beyond my normal UK limit.

A couple of hours sun to a normal person is just a couple of hours sun, especially in March, however to a semi-albino ghost ninja like myself who for over 5 years now has had to adapt to the wild Greek sun, a couple of hours is akin to nearly an entire British summer at this time of year- And, all in one sitting at that.

rain, british, misery, weather, sun

Damned if it does, damned if it doesn’t. . .

After the first hour I was fine, regularly checking my tan lines (as you do), but after the second hour, I was perilously close to needing more Tea, quite a shock considering I’m now a coffee head, but that is the inherent danger we face in this strange and hostile environment.

It f*cks with your metabolism, and your mind, and not necessarily in that order either.

After accidentally stepping into the house to get more refreshments (another hot drink), I instantly suffered hyperthermia as the temperature plummeted to about 18 degrees, AND I nearly knocked myself unconscious after getting blinded by the darkness within my home as a sharp and unforgiving contrast to the vivid outdoors hit me like a bat.

One of my cats was now looking at me like I’d just been beamed down to the Planet for the very first time as I fumbled about an area of my home to which normally I could walk quite freely, and yet now here I was grappling around furiously in the hope that my eyesight would return before I trod on something, fell over the sofa or walked into a wall.

Not only was my eyesight severely compromised but my balance had also been corrupted by the head rush I’d gotten from standing up too quickly all whilst accidentally dislodging one of my slipper sandal thingies on the door frame, I managed to send myself careering inbound like a deranged idiot.

If any of my neighbours had been watching, they’d have probably just seen a figure stand up randomly and appear to bounce off the door for no reason before running into the house sideways. Quality.

I’d have shimmied up the Eiffel tower blindfolded with more grace if the truth be told, but I feel in my own world that I may have done it with some style where perhaps I may have been lacking in composure as I did stay upright, much to my surprise.

The shock to my system wasn’t as bad as the shock to my senses so it seems, and here I sit writing this late at night with the early stages of a f*cking cold on the way.

It’s wasn’t even a case of ‘only Maddogs and Englishmen’ today either, I was sensible, aware and in control.

I’m not like the morons who when on holiday fall asleep in the sun or spend all day drinking before realising that they are burn’t as a crisp. I’m now hardcore, I’ve enjoyed the gradual build up to today and been out in the many days prior to today training for it, however prolonged exposure to this insane object people call the ‘sun’ is still at best a risky undertaking when abroad.

I still look for the clouds though, even when there are none to be found. Often out of habit, and yet after May, mainly out of a perverse longing for it to cool this place the f*ck down a bit.

By May to June, the rain doesn’t even make it to the ground here, if your lucky and it is cloudy possibly might ‘rain’, it fails, on an epic level usually.

It may leave the clouds with all the best intentions but it scarcely ever hits the ground and at best you may feel it hit you only for it to evaporate before your brain has chance to process the whole experience.

I’m not a huge fan of the rain, but it does have it’s moments, but having come from the UK, a Country whereby some people are born wearing wellies and holding umbrella’s, we can’t help but feel a need for it more than most sane people probably ever would.

weather stone, forecast, rain, chart

Today’s forecast, grim with an outbreak of doom followed by scattered misery and a spot of f*ck you too.

Today was not one such day. Today was the happy medium between ‘glorious’ and ‘perfect’ and yet my cruel reward and or punishment for such a delight is now to be assessing the need for a Cold and Flu Nurofen.

Support NGO’s not the ‘Malakas’ who abuse them. . .

Finally some much appreciated and valued support from a genuinely concerned person like many who is sick of the corruption, and malpractice which plagues this Country and who wants a level of moral and ethical behaviour sadly lacking in this sector to be brought about by a change for the better. And I don’t just mean in the HIV / Aids sector, I mean the two faced hypocrisy as shown by those connected with it, all keen to talk the talk whilst doing nothing, those who moan and bitch about the Country being in a mess whilst actively condemning those who get of their fat arses and who do do something.

So, with pure and genuine warmth, I thank you ‘those who listened’ for also helping to do the right thing where so many people have failed.


As an FYI :

Corruption, NGO, MKO, Greece, ACTUP, "ACTUP ΔΡΑΣΕ HELLAS", ΥΔΑΣ, Aπάτη

Let’s stop all the f*cktards stealing all the money shall we?

You wouldn’t believe the level of corruption shown, even when trying to highlight this malpractice and corruption to ‘so called’ people who care and or work in this sector. It takes an outsider, a foreigner at that to have to spend 5 years in and out of the Courts fighting to make this place a slightly better place through doing the right thing, and often all I get is abuse or people trying to cover it up.

So if your Greek, don’t say ‘Etsi’ and just shrug your shoulders thinking nothing can be done, it can. FFS, if I can get sh*t happening here with my limited (if not slightly amusing) broken Greek, no support whilst taking on your state and those who make a career out of abusing people and thinking they CAN, (but don’t) get away with it, then imagine what YOU could do yoursellf.

Sure, it’s not easy, it’s painfullly slow, cost you time, money and effort, but that’s the price of change, reform, something positive happening. No faeries come and sweep it all up at night, that’s for sure.

Yes, of course it drives you mad, often I’ve myself even contemplated walking into these government offices wired to the max and putting us all on the moon, but I persevered, sometimes even found it either funny or enlightening, as the many things you witness can cause a greater inspiration, but also, whilst doing this I’ve met some great people and seen those who do want change, who are mad and doing something too.

Then you have the Ignorant and ill-informed people who work this for a whole different reason, the celebrity factor. You have people like Zoe Maroudi who has recently been trying to milk a documentary whereby 12 women were abused by the state, which appears to be nothing more than a shallow opportunity for her and those responsible for this corruption in the first place, to YET AGAIN stand behind those they allow to be neglected and manipulated by a system and sector of Healthcare which seems to be openly involved in covering this up.

The women, and as before with a different case, the immigrants who get hung out in the public eye by the very people who let them down, only for them to appear on the bandwagon rallying for support seems to be nothing more than a vain and vacuous attempt to again appear to be doing something in the media when doing nothing good when asked of them, suits them best.

Who fed these women to the wolves in the first place? Who had privvy to being able to give the highly sensitive medical data to the Police and authorities other than the people who sheltered them in one way or another, and it’s simple, it’s either through the National HIV program to which they work in or run, or the NGO’s to which they abuse and manipulate whilst working for the sector which now appears as saviours?

Then you have people like one of the current front running representatives for Mayor here in Athens who when approached nearly five years ago, was well aware of all this and yet, despite being another ‘so called’ devout saviour the the Country and State, offered this soundbite for the press at the time “This Circus has to stop”.

Well, ‘This Circus’ he talks about is one he helped start, one whereby he was one of the NGO’s founder members, one whereby he worked with, alongside and next to for over 15 years, and one he oversaw and dealt with as a key member of the KEELPNO (CDC) board, the very people who (illegally) it seems misrepresent and abuse the f*cking people to which they are employed to protect.

So, that Circus he talks of, it turns out he’s a key Ringmaster of. As I’ve said before, if he didn’t know that everyone including the committees he sat on were taking the f*cking p*ss, then he’s too stupid to be Mayor, and if he did know and chose to do nothing but be a spectator to all that has happened, then he’s as guilty himself and too corrupt to be Mayor.

Personally, he probably stands a better chance of being voted in as Mayor if he says he is corrupt and did know of it, but that’s just based on a theory. . .

Similarly we should throw all the two faced lying thieving scumbags to the lions in order to genuinely help anyone who DOES need help, after all why have a Circus without having some entertainment . . . But guess who’s now helping with the Documentary, and the women exposed by the state recently and on the ‘Ruins’ bandwagon’, that’s right, the same people covered above, despite me contacting them directly and wishing to help them with regards to this case.

- What did they do, they removed the information provided, censored the truth about what this sector did, and those who they now affiliates themselves with, blocked my from contributing and now seeks ‘funding’ for the NGO’s and Lawyers to help fight the case. . .

I wonder if this ‘funding’ will go towards cases whereby the President of ACTUP prosecuted myself and others for exposing them? Is this how it works. . .

Makes you wonder, as that IS what happened to me after I exposed ACTUP, the state (KEELPNO) tried to cover up and provide false information as submitted by those guilty of the crimes, the NGO’s who all knew about this and did nothing dissappeared into the background when an Innocent person was being persecuted by an NGO of their own sector and the guy mentioned above, now running for Mayor who in one of his other soundbites online said he was prepared to “roll up his sleeves to help the people of Athens”, not to mention his own sector, the very bread and butter of his life by all accounts, clearly not.

Rarely a single day goes by without us having to hear how badly the economy is doing and how ‘yet another Lamoyo assh*le’ has robbed this place blind, AGAIN, and mostly all the people involved can do about it is shrug their shoulders and be spectators to their own downfall. Wise up.

corruption, fraud, NGO, MKO, theft, malpractice, ACTUP, Kabourakis, Kostadis

500+ NGO’ (MKO’) in Greece, and people wonder where the money goes?

Not for me, I couldn’t give a rats ass anymore, Do it for yourself if no one else.

I’ll do what needs doing for my own greater good and so that I can sleep at night but I’ll happily watch you wallow in your own ineptitude as life passes you by, and gain strength from knowing that I contributed, a lot, and probably more than them, EVER.

FYI for the haters and people who feel it their right to begrudge me being involved :

People have sometimes had a hard time with me doing this, sometimes because I’m not from here, but that’s ok, meanwhile when for the last 5 years I’ve been in and out of Court, at great expense and mental anguish trying to save the Country money’s stolen from it, helping fight and expose people abusing the Health sector to which we all need and use, ask yourself, where in the queue were YOU?

Because I don’t recalling you do anything else other than just bitchin and moanin about someone who actually did do something.

Get the f*ck outta here. . .

Unfortunately, this sh*t’s still going on here in Greece, the current stories hitting the news lately (and with no signs of remorse) all seem to still be surrounding the many cases such as this whereby people deliberately sought to rob and steal from the state under the guise of a once respected cause, or in some cases, one that would fool people into believing that it was a genuine cause in order to gain state funding in the first place.

Here in Greece, a Country where over 500+ Non Government Organisations are reportedly in operation, you’ think that we’d all be walking on water due to all the ‘good‘ work being done, but sadly the reality hides a far darker truth.

Whilst it is common for people involved within these Organisations to paint themselves as saintly figures with the blood of Mother Theresa coursing through their veins, what is found is often a fabricated illusion based of a persona which is so far removed from the truth that even the person who wrote it fails to recognise the person it was once supposed to represent.

That’s in no way to detract from the genuine people who do offer their valuable time, effort and energy to these causes, of which there are many, however it’s usually the Organisers who benefit, not the actual causes, or the people who need the help of the cause initially, their help as with ACTUP’s most likely got wasted away on all the champagne the funding from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs provided!

And yes, according to their records for the data submitted concerning the ΥΔΑΣ Investigation, Champagne is ‘apparently’ instrumental in fighting HIV & Aids. Now you know.

Last year for me did see the end of the key legal farce which tainted my life here since having the misfortune of choosing to accept a job for what turned out to be an Organisation run by petty thieves and pretenders to a cause they hijacked for their own gain.

Not only did they abuse my name, steal my wages, rob me of my Insurance and then slander me for the privilege when I refused to commit fraud for them, but then when threatened and having to listen to the horsesh*t the pikie thieves tried to hide behind when they were exposed for what they are, they then try and abuse their positions working for the state by getting them to provide false documentation to try and cover it all up.

After refusing to commit fraud against the Ministry of Foreign Affairs here in Greece on behalf of the President of ACTUP ΔΡΑΣΕ HELLAS, he then attempted to sue myself and the two other people who exposed him and the many immoral and unethical aspects of the NGO (MKO) to which they abused for 15+ years after already having reasonable doubt to numerous facts which had come to light in their own records.

The case against us to which he claimed was slander was something he chose to try and hide behind for three years, enabling him the opportunity to shrug off the realities which had come to light about him illegally pretending to be a Doctor and alongside the other board members, who provided false documentation for funding whilst working for the CDC and abusing state resources, for projects both state and EU.

Gaining access to the key Hospital Andreas Syggros hospital was just a small part in the overall plan to gain access to highly sensitive medical data alongside the non protected or confidential phoneline which they also set in place allowing them personal and medical details of all who came into contact with them, allowing them to potentially operate with impunity as they were employed by the state and working against it as members of the NGO.

The case finally came to an end in December 2013 whereby after choosing (as usual) to not attend, present themselves or turn up on previous appearances, after hearing all the information against them, the Magistrate not only acquitted ourselves for acting with integrity and for exposing one of the worst medical malpractice cases to have damaged the HIV sector, but then requested further Investigation against Kostadis Kaburakis and the involvement of the NGO as detailed in many of the documents provided by ourselves.

Many of the documents and claims to which he denied and claimed were false and nothing but malicious slander made up by ourselves, were actually the same documents as submitted by him to the Ministries whereby he and another board member, Andreas Grilleas masqueraded as Doctors. This  was whilst the key member of the NGO, the financial Director responsible for the financial crime Chrysoula Botsi, masterminded and covered this up for them at KEELPNO and who was also one of the leading members of the National HIV & Aids program here in Greece.

So, as this ‘subject’ again hit the headlines recently with regards to the other MKO cases currently coming to light for the same period, and the city elections concerning the Mayor debate surrounding Γρηγόρης Βαλλιανάτος, it felt right to get it back to peoples attention as it covers such an interconnecting aspect of the fabric of what is wrong with this sector in particular, but also helps expose two decades of corruption to which pretty much everyone currently involved in this sector on a significant level is well aware of.

Whilst I do not in anyway implicate people currently in the media spotlight who are running for Mayor with regards to the essence of this blog or for any of the other corruption exposed within this sector, as an outsider who has had to fight the immoral, two faced hypocricy of those who have tried to cover this up for the last 5 years now, I would like to point out that  people connected with the decision for who does become Mayor should realistically choose the right man for the job based on track record, willingness to act correctly and for their virtue, and not due to their sexual orientation, religious views or charisma.

Having dealt with one of the key people involved in this debate though, and knowing that he not only had a origin within the foundations of this NGO, who also similarly sat on the same comittees as these people whilst they provided lie after lie, and whilst he attended all the same conferences and NGO events as per the sector, and last but not least, as with the others involved within these NGO‘s, who when personally sanctioned and begged for help to tackle the corruption within HIS sector, did little other than be a spectator (as usual) to a legacy of shame and criminal malpractice and financial deception, then I would seriously reassess his credentials as a person to be trusted.

It comes down to this, (and I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt, despite knowing what I know about what was known), if he honestly didn’t know that the people he worked with for over 15 years weren’t Doctors, were defrauding the state, and were running non legal projects with KEELPNO helping to cover it up, then he isn’t  really smart enough to fulfil any greater role in society, especially having already failed the very same people he claims to protect. If he did know and chose to do nothing, then he’s no better than any of the people who helped cause the mess Greece is in right now and shouldn’t be allowed to run for the position.

As a person, some people have charisma, personality and charm enough to talk your grandma out of her teeth, but whether or not they are suitable to live up to the false expectation painted up by the other dreamers blind to the truth, then nothing will ever get better.

Now more than ever Greece needs people who set an example, people who stand up to the tyranny which has ruined so much of it recently, and more than anything else, the people need to vote for someone who will inspire change because it is right, not because it’s a novelty, because of perversion, color or creed.

Personally I have time for most people, and especially the criminals to whom I now know many who have abused this sector so badly for, and yet it is better to know the reality of the man and be able to avoid the expectation which will always fall short, than to be led into darkness by those who mask their true intent by being something they are not.

On a lighter note, the blog does contain many more irrelevant and (light and fluffy) posts, it’s not just about hating the lies and fighting the corruption, and posts such as this (another day at the funny farm) should make for an alternative read should you need a break from the stress associated with daily life, however the effort required to get people to act responsibly when standing up to the state in 5 years caused for no respite, and similarly due to the amount of pathetic and two faced liars and other f*cktards who all attempted to cover it up, it was at times a fulltime job ensuring that people actually got to hear about the truth surrounding this sector.

Future posts will aim to highlight and expose those intent on covering this up and shed an interesting light onto the other aspects to which this case reveals many, who similarly (by their social profiles) are also related to Mother Superior, and yet who do nothing but cover up and censor the truth, but that’s for another day, and after no doubt more comes to light in the media anyway.

Meanwhile, at a board meeting somewhere in Greece. . . !

Απάτη – από ΜΚΟ ACTUP

There’s been quite a bit in the news recently with regards to HIV & Aids, as well as Non Government Organisations (MKO’s) stealing from the state – again which is why I feel this is a matter of Interest, especially concerning the many things which are intertwined.

And with the two both getting exposure it seemed appropriate to re-enlighten people to a case which connects the dots and which was brought into the public forum again at the end of 2013, ready for the rest of the court cases to prevail later this year, we hope.

I was fortunate enough to get hold of a transcript for fellow Greeks to whom my language skills would fail me dismally had I had to try and translate for you, however I do feel it my duty to try and provide more material in Greek as this is now my home.

Lamoyo, theft, MKO, fraud, corruption, ACTUP

Lube up, it’s your turn to get f*cked today as the news would have us believe. . .

Taken from a Radio Interview by Skai :

Ραδιόφωνο ΣΚΑΪ, 30.5. 2009, “Πρώτη Γραμμή”.
Νέα στοιχεία για την οικονομική διαχείριση της ACTUP.
Στο διάστημα που μεσολάβησε από την πρώτη εκπομπή μέχρι σήμερα, πρώην μέλη του Διοικητικού Συμβουλίου της ACTUP επί σειρά ετών, επικοινώνησαν με τον Αχιλλέα Τόπα, δηλώνοντας ότι ουδέποτε ενημερώθηκαν από τον Κ. Καμπουράκη για τα οικονομικά πεπραγμένα της οργάνωσης, παρόλο που του το είχαν ζητήσει. Πολύ αμελής αυτός ο κ. Καμπουράκης… Τα άλλα μέλη του σημερινού συμβουλίου της οργάνωσης τι λένε σχετικά; Η ταμίας, ας πούμε, που την αφορά άμεσα το θέμα;

Corruption, Απάτη, MKO, Greece, Ελλάδα

The president who provided false documentation to Ministries claiming to be a Doctor along with other members of the Board in order to gain funding non specific to the NGO’s cause.

Στο μεταξύ, η επιστολή διαμαρτυρίας του προέδρου του Δ.Σ. της οργάνωσης Κ. Καμπουράκη προς τον ΣΚΑΪ δεν διαψεύδει απολύτως τίποτα από τα όσα είδαν το φως της δημοσιότητας στην πρώτη εκπομπή του ΣΚΑΪ στις 16 Μαΐου 2009.
Επιπλέον, παρά τις επανειλημμένες προσπάθειες, γραπτές και προφορικές, των δημοσιογράφων του ΣΚΑΪ Κώστα Αλατζά και Αχιλλέα Τόπα να επικοινωνήσουν με τον κ. Καμπουράκη πριν από την πρώτη εκπομπή, αλλά και μέχρι σήμερα, προκειμένου να έχουν στον αέρα την άποψή του σχετικά με τα στοιχεία για την οικονομική διαχείριση της ACTUP, ο κ. Καμπουράκης αρνήθηκε επίμονα να φιλοξενηθεί από τον ΣΚΑΪ, παρά τις διαμαρτυρίες που διατυπώνει στην επιστολή του ότι δεν ζητήθηκε η άποψή του.


… είναι το μεγάλο ζητούμενο για τα οικονομικά επιτελεία της εκάστοτε κυβέρνησης.

Πολλά ακούγονται γι’ αυτό το πράγμα, αλλά λίγα γίνονται.

Και τα λέω όλα αυτά, γιατί κατά καιρούς έχετε ακούσει πάρα πολλά άσχημα
για τον αδιαφανή τρόπο με τον οποίο λειτουργούν στη χώρα μας οι ΜΚΟ
που είναι αρκετές εκατοντάδες, σε αναντιστοιχία
με τις χώρες του εξωτερικού
που ενώ έχουνε πολύ μεγαλύτερο πληθυσμό, οι ΜΚΟ είναι λιγότερες
Στην Ελλάδα δραστηριοποιούνται πάρα πολλές, εκατοντάδες ΜΚΟ,
οι οποίες ως επί το πλείστον χρηματοδοτούνται από δύο πηγές:
από το Υπουργείο Εξωτερικών και από το Υπουργείο Πολιτισμού
Για τις χρηματοδοτήσεις των ΜΚΟ και των πολιτιστικών συλλόγων
τα μάθαμε με την πτώση του Χρήστου Ζαχόπουλου,
την απόπειρα αυτοκτονίας,
μάθαμε για τον Ειδικό αμαρτωλό Λογαριασμό του ΟΠΑΠ,
για τα χρήματα που διαχειρίζονται οι υπουργοί Πολιτισμού κατά το δοκούν
και διοχετεύονται με αδιαφανείς διαδικασίες και σε ΜΚΟ και συλλόγους
που αμφισβητείται η δραστηριότητά τους
Τα λέω όλα αυτά, διότι θα φιλοξενήσουμε τώρα τον Αχιλλέα Τόπα
ο οποίος έχει κάνει μια πολύ ενδιαφέρουσα δημοσιογραφική έρευνα
για μία ΜΚΟ, την έχετε, φαντάζομαι, πολλοί από σας ακούσει,
αναφέρομαι στην ACTUP. Καλημέρα Αχιλλέα Τόπα.

- Κώστα καλημέρα. – Κατ’ αρχάς πες μας τι κάνει η ACTUP.

Η ACTUP είναι μία ΜΚΟ, όπως είπες κι εσύ, η οποία ιδρύθηκε το 1993,
υλοποιεί προγράμματα τα οποία αποσκοπούν στην προστασία θυμάτων trafficking
φορέων HIV, καθώς και ανθρώπων οι οποίοι νοσούν από AIDS
Τώρα, Κώστα, σύμφωνα με την πληροφόρηση που έχουμε, η εν λόγω ΜΚΟ
συμμετείχε σε 4 προγράμματα αναπτυξιακής και ανθρωπιστικής βοήθειας
της Διεύθυνσης Διεθνούς Αναπτυξιακής Συνεργασίας του ΥΠΕΞ
Είναι ένας φορέας του ΥΠΕΞ, ον οποίος χρηματοδοτεί ΜΚΟ
που ενδιαφέρονται να αναπτύξουν προγράμματα
αναπτυξιακής και ανθρωπιστικής φύσεως.

-Και διαθέτει ετησίως 60 εκατομμύρια ευρώ… – …για ΜΚΟ συγκεκριμένα
-Έχει εγγεγραμμένες στο Μητρώο της, επειδή είπες πριν
ότι έχουμε πάρα πολλές ΜΚΟ στην Ελλάδα,
περισσότερες από 500 τέτοιες οργανώσεις
Αυτό δεν σημαίνει, Κώστα, ότι όλες είναι δραστήριες.

Απ’ το 2004, λοιπόν, έως το 2006, η συγκεκριμένη ΜΚΟ
έλαβε ως προκαταβολή το 75/% περίπου του συνολικού ποσού
που εμπλέοκοναι στα προγράμματα αυτά δηλαδή περίπου 200.000 ευρώ
σύμφωνα με την πληροφόρηση που έχουμε πάντοτε.

Τώρα, το 2006 προκύπτει ένα ζήτημα διαχείρισης των χρημάτων αυτών,
καθώς το Υπουργείο διακόπτει τη χρηματο- δότηση προς τη ΜΚΟ ACTUP
η οποία δεν υπέβαλε, κι αυτό συνέβη Κώστα, γιατί δεν υπέβαλε στο ΥΠΕΞ ως όφειλε
ενδιάμεσες μελέτες που να καταδεικνύουν την πρόοδο υλοποίησης των προγραμμάτων,
δηλαδή κοινώς τι συνέβη με τα κονδύλια αυτά.

Κι εδώ αυτό το πραγμα δεν το λέμε εμείς, το λεει μια πληροφορία
η οποία επιβεβαιώνεται από το ΥΠΕΞ, αλλά είναι και πράγματα
αλλά είναι και πράγματα τα οποία μας κατήγγειλαν οι ίδιοι οι εργαζόμενοι στην ACTUP
οι πρώην εργαζόμενοι στη συγκεκριμένη περίπτωση,
και νομίζω, Κώστα, ότι μπορούμε ν’ ακούσουμε έναν εξ αυτών τι μας δήλωσε.

Ο κύριος Σάιμον Ράβιτς κατήγγειλε στον ΣΚΑΪ ότι ο πρόεδρος τηε ACTUP,
ο κ. Κωνσταντίνος Καμπουράκης, του ζήτησε να φτιάξει εικονικές αποδείξεις
για να καλύψουνε δαπάνες από κρατικά κον- δύλια που είχε λάβει η ACTUP από το ΥΠΕΞ.

3D, 2D, artist designer, web media specialist, animator and musician.

Simon A.Rawicz – “It’s when your robbed and threatened by people like these that the news becomes real and it’s no longer something you read about that doesn’t matter. Suddenly everything matters.”

Είχαμε οικονομικά προβλήματα όλο το διάστημα που δούλεψα εκεί.

Προσπαθήσαμε να βοηθήσουμε το αφεντικό και να διαπιστώσουμε
τι γίνεται με τα χρήματα που είχε λάβει η οργάνωση.

Τα Χριστούγεννα απαιτήσαμε να βελτιωθεί η κατάσταση,
καθώς ήταν καινούργιο έτος και δεν μπορούσα να δουλεύω άλλο
χωρίς τηλέφωνο και υπολογιστές. Δεν ήταν πρακτικό.

Τότε, ζήτησε από μένα και μία συνάδελφο να τον βοηθήσουμε
να φτιάξει εικονικές αποδείξεις για να καλύψουμε δαπάνες από κρατικά κονδύλια
που είχαμε λάβει από το ΥΠΕΞ. Δεν γνωρίζαμε τι απέγινε με τα χρήματα αυτά.

Τα βιβλία με τους λογαριασμούς των τελευταίων 5 ετών δεν έχουν συμπληρωθεί ακόμη.

Αυτές οι διαδικασίες, τουλάχιστον στην Αγγλία, συνιστούν απάτη
και επισύρουν ποινή φυλάκισης 5-10 χρόνια
Φυσικά, δεν ήμουν διατεθειμένος να κάνω κάτι τέτοιο.

Εσείς είδατε τις προβληματικές αποδείξεις ιδίοις όμμασι;
Ναι, ήταν αποδείξεις πέντε ετών, τις οποίες είδα αναλυτικά.

Αφορούσαν περίπου σε 100.000 ευρώ για προγράμματα της οργάνωσης.

Πολλές απ’ αυτές ήταν για ταξίδια στο εξοχικό του κ. Καμπουράκη,
<…> για τη γάτα του,
και τον ρώτησα επανειλημμένως με ποιον τρόπο θα μπορούσαν να δικαιολογηθούν αυτά.

Υπήρχε ένα κενό της τάξης των 25.000-35.000 ευρώ για το 2004 και το 2005.

Γιατί αποφασίσατε να καταγγείλετε όλα αυτά τώρα;
Εγώ ξεκίνησα να δουλεύω τυχαία στην ACTUP κι ένιωθα όμορφα γιατί έκανα κάτι καλό.

Αλλά εν τέλει διαπίστωσα ότι δεν μπορούσαμε να κάνουμε αυτά που έπρεπε
για τους ανθώπους που έπρεπε να βοηθήσουμε.

Νομίζω ότι ειναι πάρα πολύ σοβαρή η καταγγελία
που έκανε σ’ εσένα, Αχ. Τόπα, ο κ. Σάιμον Ράβιτς, πρώην εργαζόμενος σην ACTUP
-Πράγματι. -Το ΥΠΕΞ τώρα τι λέι για όλα αυτά;
Για το λόγο αυτό και για το γεγονός ότι δεν είχε τις ενδιάμεσες εκθέσεις από τη ΜΚΟ το ΥΠΕΞ,
με μεγάλη καθυστέρηση είναι η αλήθεια, καλεί την ACTUP να παρουσιαστεί
ενώπιον της Επιτροπής Ακροάσεων του ΥΠΕΞ
προκειμένου να δώσει εξηγήσεις.

Σύμφωνα με την πληροφόρηση που έχουμε, αυτό θα γινει εντός της επόμενης εβδομάδας
και η Επιτροπή Ακροάσεων είναι ένα αρκετά σοβαρό,
ή μάλλον πολύ σοβαρό όργανο του ΥΠΕΞ
Σε περίπτωση που η οργάνωση δεν δώσει ικανοποιητικές εξηγήσεις
θα κληθεί να επιστρέψει έντοκα τα χρήματα που έλαβε τη διετία 2004 έως 2006
<…> το Υπουργείο εάν διαπιστώσει κάτι το μεμπτό
τότε θα προβεί και σε όλες τις απαραίτητες ενέργειες,

για να διασφαλίσει τη διαφάνεια στα κονδύλια που χορηγεί, απ’ ό,τι μαθαίνουμε.

Μετά το 2006 έλαβε από την ΥΔΑΣ κάποια κονδύλια η συγκεκριμένη ΜΚΟ;
Από την ΥΔΑΣ δεν έλαβε κανένα κονδύλι, Κώστα,
έχουμε όμως στοιχεία για επιχορηγήσεις που έλαβε από το Υπουργείο Υγείας
και συγκεκριμένα από το ΚΕ.ΕΛ.Π.ΝΟ.,
το Κέντρο Ελέγχου και Πρόληψης Νοσημάτων.

Οι πόροι,του ΚΕ.ΕΛ.Π.ΝΟ. προέρχονται από τον τακτικό προϋπολογισμό του υπ. Υγείας.

Τουλάχιστον σε μία περίπτωση γνωρίζουμε εμείς ότι το καλοκαίρι του 2006
και ενώ έχει διακοπεί η χρηματοδότηση από την ΥΔΑΣ,
ζητάει η ACTUP 55.000 ευρώ για την κάλυψη μιας καλοκαιρινής εκστρατείας
επισκέψεις σε 5 νησιά και διανομή ενημερωτικού υλικού στον πληθυσμό
για την ασθένεια του AIDS.

Πόσα χρήματα ήταν αυτά που έλαβε;
Εμείς ξέρουμε σίγουρα για μία περίπτωση, για 55.000 ευρώ
σύμφωνα όμως με πληροφορίες που έχουμε στα χέρια μας
αυτό έχει γίνει αρκετές φορές
δεν είμαστε ακτιβώς σε θέση να γνωρίζουμε…

-Μπορεί να είναι πολύ μεγαλύτερο το ποσό, γιατί…

Όπως και να ‘χει, το ρεπορτάζ γι’ αυτό το θέμα θα συνεχιστεί
και λίαν συντόμως ευελπιστώ να γνωρίζουμε…

-Τώρα να συνοψίσω εγώ: Έχουμε μια ΜΚΟ
η οποία δραστηριοποιείται από τις αρχές της δεκαετίας του ’90
και το θέμα που αναδεικνύεις εσύ είναι ότι
είναι ότι τη διετία 2004-2006 εισέπραξε 200.000 ευρώ,
τα διαχειρίστηκε με αδιαφανή τρόπο, όπως όλα δείχνουν,
έχουμε την καταγγελία του πρώην εργαζομένου
ότι ζητήθηκε από τον πρόεδρο της ACTUP, ζητήθηκε από τον κ. Καμπουράκη
να φτιάξουν εικονικές αποδείξεις, για να καλύψουν τις δαπάνες
από τα κονδύλια που είχαν λάβει από το ΥΠΕΞ,
σταματάει η χρηματοδότηση από το ΥΠΕΞ
και απευθύνεται ο κ. Καμπουράκης και η ACTUP στο υπ. Υγείας
και παίρνει κάποια χρήματα για κάποιες καμπάνιες που μας είπες.

-Ακριβώς, παίρνει χρήματα μέσω του ΚΕ.ΕΛ.Π.ΝΟ.

το οποίο, σύμφωνα με τον Εσωτερικό Κανονισμό του ΚΕ.ΕΛ.Π.ΝΟ.,
μπορεί το ΚΕ.ΕΛ.Π.ΝΟ. να αναθέτει δράσεις σε τρίτους
Αυτό πρέπει να γίνεται κατόπιν προκήρυξης,
η οποία προκήρυξη να δημοσιευτεί σε δύο εφημερίδες.

-Ο κ. Καμπουράκης έχει άλλη δραστηριότητα πέρα από το ότι είναι πρόεδρος της ACTUP;
Ο κ. Καμπουράκης, Κώστα, φαίνεται ότι έχει πολλαπλές αρμοδιότητες:
Είναι πρόεδρος του Δ.Σ. της ACTUP από το 2000 έως σήμερα,
είναι υπεύθυνος Γραφείου Μελέτης και Αντιμετώπισης Trafficking του ΚΕ.ΕΛ.Π.ΝΟ.,
από το Νοέμβριο του 2008 έως σήμερα…

-Δηλαδή πληρώνεται από το υπ. Υγείας
-Ναι, ακριβώς. Εμφανίστηκε σε μία περίπτωση,
σε μία εκδήλωση που έγινε στο Καλλιμάρμαρο
στη μνήμη των θυμάτων του AIDS,
-αυτό το Δεκέμβριο του 2007- εμφανίζεται ως σύμβουλος του υπ. Υγείας
-Του προέδρου του ΚΕ.ΕΛ.Π.ΝΟ.

-Και του προέδρου του ΚΕ.ΕΛ.Π.ΝΟ., Κώστα
ως σύμβουλος του προέδρου του ΚΕ.ΕΛ.Π.ΝΟ., του κ. Πιερρουτσάκου,
εμφανίζεται στο Εθνικό Σχέδιο Διαβούλευσης
-Μάλιστα, πολυθεσίτης δηλαδή ο κ. Καμπουράκης…

Έχουμε αδιαφανείς διαδικασίες που πήρε από το ΥΠΕΞ,
απευθύνθηκε στο υπ. Υγείας, πήρε κι από κει χρήματα,
και παράλληλα είναι και έμμισθος υπάλληλος του υπ. Υγείας,
μέσω της σχέσης που έχει στο ΚΕ.ΕΛ.Π.ΝΟ.

Πολύ ενδιαφέρον αυτό, όπως γενικότερα ενδιαφέρον έχουνε
οι δράσεις των ΜΚΟ στην Ελλάδα


Since this broadcast exposed the criminal malpractice as committed by the Board of Directors of ACTUP, further Investigations have looked into the conduct and financial affairs whereby this started one of many enquiries into their 15 year web of corruption.

The Investigation by ΥΔΑΣ (The Ministry of Foreign Affairs found them guilty of financial crime for projects from 2000 to 2004, despite the President (Kostadis Kaburakis) and members denying such an Investigation was ever happening.

The president of the NGO failed in a non lawful court case whereby he tried to sue us for slander with regards to the Items covered as above, but in December 2013 after several years of misery exposing these people, the Court found us Innocent of any wrong doing and acquitted us after the facts proved that all the material discovered about this fraudulent NGO to be true, and recommended further Investigation into the conduct of the President and members of ACTUP as per the ongoing investigations already in progress by the state.

The fact that he illegally pretended to be a Doctor alongside other board members who abused their positions to gain access to highly sensitive HIV & Aids data and then tried to sue those who exposed him shows the true nature of this pathetic man and his contempt for those wishing to help the sector to which he and his colleagues abused for so long.


Corruption, theft, fraud, false documentation and pretending to be a Doctor!

The recent plight of the women who were subjected to the failure of the sector to which pretends to care and help them is evident when for the last 5 years, all the other NGO’s within this sector who were notified of the criminal malpractice which was present and yet still chose to do nothing, allowing the many recent cases to have happened when they could have possibly have been prevented shows just how many of these people deliberately manipulate the victims in an attempt to validate their own existence.

The president and Financial Director enjoying the perks of running an NGO

As wirh many of the reciepts submitted to the Investigation by ΥΔΑΣ, rarely was funding used for project work, instead reciepts for Champagne, trips, clothing items etc were the norm!

The self serving agenda to which the people above are highlighted shows the inherent dangers of sensitive medical data and confidentiality falling into the wrong hands and especially when this is covered up and instigated by people like Chrysoula Botsi who was the head of the Greek National HIV plan and Financial Director responsible for the financial fraud whilst in ACTUP, one of the people who set out to deliberately provide the Ministries with false documentation when they took over the NGO in 1999/2000.

Fraud, deception, funding, Απάτη, MKO, NGO, Greece

One of the best soundbites since the Investigation began, if you speak Greek, you’ll no doubt get the Irony. . .

Whilst working for ΚΕ.ΕΛ.Π.ΝΟ she was then able to help orchestrate herself and the MKO (NGO) into funding, projects and Hospitals for herself and the other ‘Doctors’ who now worked for the CDC also, alongside the secretary Kostadinos Zikkas who illegally documented the statute and used the names of people illegally to help fraudulently elect themselves in.

False documentation, non legal elections.

Responsible for entering the statute details and providing non legal documentation which illegally used the names of people without their consent repeatedly through his involvement with the MKO.

These cases are in the hands of the authorities and should be resolved shortly after the Involvement of ΣΔΟΕ and ΥΔΑΣ, and the recent cases for criminal damage, malpractice and much more.

If you want to help fight HIV & Aids here in Greece, first you have to fight the parasites who have been stealing and lying to the people, the Ministries and the victims of the organised corruption which stops people actually getting access to genuine help, and those who abuse the Health sector if anyone’s ever going to get close to being able to treat people with some dignity.

HIV, fraud, MKO, corruption, Greece, ACTUP

Support the cause, not the problems associated with it!

* Ammended article : Feb 2014

Since many of these articles were covered, legal action (as touched upon above) and further proof about the people covered within this blog have come to light to vindicate the facts about this unethical NGO and the behaviour of it’s board of Directors including those who attempted to cover up the reality of the corruption and malpractice exhibited by those in charge of ACTUP ΔΡΑΣΕ HELLAS.

Our plight to expose the two faced thieving scumbags as per the ones highlighted within this blog have all now come to the attention of the respective authorities whereby they now face penal action for their roles in much of what has been revealed. This will be further covered once the courts have given their verdicts and whereby the crimes committed have been dealt with.

Meanwhile, the case of Slander against myself and the two others who valiantly fought to expose these people was thrown out by the courts and we were acquitted and found innocent, and the activities whereby the President of the NGO, his partner and the secretary and other board members who acted unlawfully in their running of this NGO have been passed onto the District Attourney for further analysis due to the severity of the actions committed by those covered in the article in which they attempted to sue us for, when it rightly revealed the true horror of the NGO and it’s members as backed up by the information obtained from the NGO itself and the Ministries connected with it.

On a lighter note, what kind of no brained halfwit tries to sue you for slander when he himself provides Ministries with the documentation he then spends most of his lifetime boasting, about when it’s a lie. . . Well, you can ask him yourself if you want, its just still too funny. . .

For more information feel free to visit my latest link, An ‘Ode to Kostadis’.

Needless to say that all the evidence provided by ourselves was given to us by the Ministries concerned and highlighted the fact that all 5 members of the board of Directors,Kostadis KabourakisChrysoula Botsi, Kostandinos ZikkasGeorge Papachristou and Andreas Grilleas all were found guilty of defrauding the state, not to mention some of who illegally claimed to be Doctors and abused the access this gave them to by gaining privvy to highly sensitive medical data, illegally obtained by decieving their way into hospitals and key HIV / Aids projects.

This was overseen by the one genuine member of the Greek CDC who worked forKEELPNO and was the financial Director (Chrysoula Botsi ),not only responsible for the financial issues currently under further investigation by Ministries, but who covered and was part of the deliberate deception whereby other members of the board could illegally pretend to be Doctors and provide false documentation to whoever required it over (now) a 15 year period.

The lies and slander go on by the afore mentioned people in their last ditched attempt to blame others and provide a smokescreen for what has been a very elaborate and deliberate opportunity by immoral people who took advantage of the HIV & Aids sector for their own gain, and the funding has revealed, private, corporate and public funding as well as Pharmaceutical payments which show considerable money has been acquired by these individuals, hence the serious financial crimes Investigation which is underway by ΖΔΟΕ, the authority responsible.

Talking to rocks. . .

Inspired by a link made me think,  (dubious I know, me thinking that is), but I’ve not written in a while. It’s true. Too busy, too stressed, just moved and, well, frankly this sh*te British weather we’ve been having here in Greece has taken the edge off my pre-season Summer training.

I’m not grumbling, I’ve seen the weather globally and know I’m still happy to be getting what we get here any day of the week. As a brit, this is still better than most summers in the UK. Fact.

Also as a Brit, this isn’t even wet weather we’ve been having here either, Greeks I know are going on about the recent rain like Noah’s going to appear any day now.

- Don’t worry, he’s not, if you’ve ever gone to the coast in the UK on a summer Bank Holiday, then you know what Rain is.

The heaven’s punish you for having the optimism for even daring to head to the beach to risk getting a tan, and then the Sun swiftly takes the p*ss out of you once you make it back home.

As for best UK memories of the Sun, I remember once standing on some random hill near Mossley, Manchester when there was a Solar Eclipse in progress, there was about 50 of us stood on this hill, desperately staring through the deluge, trying to squint through the black clouds hovering above us as we all convinced ourselves that somewhere was an object called a ‘Sun’ hiding behind another object called a ‘Moon’.

I remember thinking to myself ‘safe’ today, no need to worry about being blinded by the Sun, pneumonia maybe, a hailstone in the face, possibly, and drowning in flash floods whilst standing on the highest point of land for miles in the middle of a hosepipe ban, difficult to say, but I wasn’t going to rule it out.

That’s why you have to love the UK, an Island surrounded by the Sea, known for the most horrific rain EVER, and yet you spend 3/4 of the year with a hosepipe ban because there’s no feckin water. . .

Apparently it’s always the wrong type of rain!

No, really.

I lived there for nearly a year, and by the time I moved back I’d convinced myself that the Sun was just an elaborate hoax, I was so pale I thought I’d died, if I’d have gotten any paler I swear I’d have become transparent. . .

Albino’s used to come up to me and ask me what condition I had but once you told them you lived in Manchester, they understood and would often out of pity give you an Umbrella and a pair of Wellies for the Summer.

The sooner I get out in weather I deem as tolerable (dry), the sooner I’m able to gear up for the Nuclear summer we’ll soon get here. Usually January here is my English April.

Wet, windy, a bit meh but usually nice enough for me to get outside a bit, so far this has failed to materialise. I do like rain, but not when it’s cold, and now. I do like it a bit ‘nipply’, but preferably when I’m a spectator to the ‘nipply’ thang. . .

February is usually getting onto my suntan best days and loosely translates to my June, and by March here I’m in full summer mode, already missing days such as these, and trying to struggle with memories of clouds and moisture.

I slowly become susceptible to ‘moontan’ and have to plot my routes from about late March, early June and by July I’m like a Vampire Ninja. Hidden in the shadows, dashing from shadow to shadow as I prey upon the cool chill of night. Well, cool, it’s usually still 30 degrees, but that’s the coolest you get here.

This year I may hack my Fridge into a sort of  multi-chair combi-cooler system. Head poking out the top and a chilled foot spa vegetable tray for when it’s real hot. Plus those pre-moulded egg racks would make a nice resting spot for my love plums!

So, I haven’t written for a while, partly it’s because of frustration, and partly it’s also been because of the fear of being threatened and persecuted for exposing the truth about a sector of corruption within Greece which has almost become the norm.

As regulars may know, it’s been a baptism of fire for me since I came here but luckily I have thick skin and the sh*t’s all been going one way.

Talking to rocks is sometimes the only time you get to hear a rational conversation, but when they shut up there is only silence. . .

Firstly, the corruption and malpractice here, well it’s been allowed to brutalise the people unlucky enough to fall victim to it in the first place, and secondly as I found out 4, nearly 5 years ago, those who dare try and stand up to it and expose it for what it is become easy prey.

When you move Country it’s never an easy move, and writing has honestly kept me semi-sane-ish, and is often something I’ve had to do to vent out frustration which easily could have been the end of me, or a bloodbath for others.

Recently after nearly facing prison for refusing to commit fraud against the state and exposing the corruption which cost me my life and first 5 years here, my Lawyer suggested I take it easy, if only for my own good.

That failed. Sorry but I am trying. . . Now I write for a reason, with purpose to destroy the evil which preys on people here so readily, sometimes it makes me laugh because sometimes this sh*t can’t be real. . .

But it is.

If you get time and want to know what it’s like on the flip side of reality, pop by and say hello!

The fckdupathens tag and name is purely in reflection to the ACTUP ΔΡΑΣΕ HELLAS NGO (Non Government Organisation) which proved itself to be the corruption behind 15 years of state run abuse which I unfortunately came across when I first worked there, and as the facts needed to be told, the blog began.

This sh*t is covered in great detail within the blog but it’s not all you’ll find. There’s a lot more depth to many things near and far, and now after putting a lot of this misery behind me, there’ll be a lot more to come.

Now in retrospect, the name fckdupathens quite appropriate as it has been quite fckdup here, but in a good way.

There’s no doubt to Greece being fckdup up, but as you’ll discover the more you go on, all the best things usually are. . .
