Corruption, Malpractice and over a decade of lies, welcome to the Greek ACTUP

It’s now January 2015, nearly 6 years and 1 month since I was forced out of ACTUP ΔΡΑΣΕ HELLAS for refusing to help the President defraud the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs (ΥΔΑΣ) in 2009, and finally the day I get to resolve my Insurance issues at IKA. The fourth attempt (I might add) to resolve these outstanding issues, caused (as usual) by the never ending lies told by the NGO, their refusal to attend, and or their delays and general refusal to face up to the facts. It’s current board of Directors and the lawyer who today represented them (January 20th, 2015) had no more lies to hide behind, they’d exhausted all their appeals, and their only attempt at providing a defence was to throw out the same lies which had already been exposed AND proven to be lies in the numerous court cases just last year (something I had to remind him of today). Previously in a Court of Law until proven, he almost had a right to some of the lies he was paid to say, but today was no such day, to deliberately try and lie in front of someone and NOT get a physical reaction wasn’t going to happen, especially when everything covered was shown to have been a lie anyway. When these shameful and pathetic excuses had only served to delay the inevitable for so long, as usual it was time for the truth, something we all know they have issues with.

Greece, Fraud, injustice, malpractice, persecution, lies

ACTUP HELLAS’s Lawyer, Representing criminal scum since 2010/2011

The lies and misinformation to which these people have based their defence on for so long and hidden behind when confronted by ‘allegations’ about their ‘virtue’ or their ‘morals’ reveal a career based on lies, deceit, and abuse, this was something myself and a couple of dedicated people revealed in 2009/2010. For over 15 years these people preyed on the HIV/Aids sector, it’s resources and those who dedicated their time, energy and resources, knowing full well that those already trapped within this sector were vulnerable and easily manipulated to either be used for funding, or for opportunity.

An NGO which exercises Hypocrisy like it's FAT!

* An NGO which exercises Hypocrisy like it’s FAT!

The long dormant NGO was taken over in 1999/2000 by three long standing members (Kostadis Kaburakis, Chrysoula Botsi and Konstantinos Zikkas) who have since been exposed as having forged elections, defrauding the state and persecuting those who stood up to them and their systematic abuse of this sector. I know this because in 2008/2009 I found out they had used my name and the name of a volunteer without consent to fabricate their election. They voted themselves in (as usual), and whilst lying to the people who worked there at the time, forged, provided false documentation and expected those who dedicated their time in genuinely helping the NGO to behave the same way. It was at this point in 2008 whereby after already noticing several unusual activities, we questioned another member of the NGO about his actions and that of the President whereby it soon became very obvious to what was going on. Since raising the issues with the respective authorities in 2009/2010, the Investigation for Fraud and financial Irregularities to which many of the Board had lied about at the time, found them guilty and fined them appropriately, this including the malpractice exposed through the Investigation also revealed the shocking extent of lies told by the Board of Directors to gain funding, run projects and abuse the resources to their own gain.

Malpractice, Fraud, theft, embezzlement, slander, corruption, Greece, ACTUP HELLAS

Abusing the state, stealing resources, and pretending to be Doctors to further your career – Priceless. . .

As a result of this the President (Kostadis Kaburakis) attempted to sue myself and two others for exposing him as a criminal, the NGO then hid behind this false illusion of being the ‘victim’ until 2014 whereby their lies were torn apart in court, inciting the Magistrate to recommend further Investigation into the Presidents and NGO‘s past and current activities. The day I refused to help them Defraud the Ministry, on returning to work the following week, they had already changed the locks and now tried to claim I never worked there (despite having a contract signed and witnessed by a member of ACTUP), later when I involved the Employment Tribunal they then tried to claim that the work Laptop which I had on me at the time, I had stolen and that the contract I had was a forgery. This was despite the fact that the President (Kostadis Kaburakis) had already provided five different lies to the Employment representative , two of which acknowledged that I did in fact work there, and that technically as I was still working for them, couldn’t have stolen something I couldn’t return.

ACTUP, lies, court

Oh how we laughed. . . Even got a slight chuckle from the Magistrate when we explained the story in Court. . .

The ensuing farce took a further 6 months to get them to finally appear at the adjudication and whereby as the verdict was expected to go in my favour, (for obvious reasons), they did the only thing that could delay judgement by filing a court case against me THAT morning to deny me being awarded the result. Legally as nothing had been resolved with my work tribunal and whilst my employment was still legally under question, I was still no nearer to Justice being carried out, and now faced a Penal case for thinking that having a contract would protect me!? – To quote the Judge at the final court hearing “Only in Greece!”. . . So, finally, four years after visiting the work tribunal to resolve my case, 5 years after unfortunately taking a job with a criminally run state sponsored NGO, I get my day in Court! I say ‘get my day in Court’, this wasn’t the first time I ‘got’my day in Court’, there had been several others whereby they had appealed, failed to represent themselves, or not provided evidence etc and yet online, they are the first to declare the need for ‘immigrant rights’, ‘power to the people’ and for ‘Justice’ to be heard. Clearly those rules don’t count when you’re persecuting innocent people for exposing you! So, the two cases against us/me, get to Court. Not only did the lies change so much, but they weren’t even remotely consistent with their own initial defence as submitted in their paperwork, and didn’t even tally up with each others lies.

I don’t know who was more surprised, me or the Magistrate, and I don’t know how it’s even possible. You had to be there, really.

The hardship for the many others awaiting their moment in court who followed our case soon became a much anticipated spectator sport as the Court room was now all keen to witness ACTUP’s board of Directors make complete arses out of themselves, AGAIN, to which they did in spectacular fashion. So much so that numerous strangers came up and congratulated me for exposing them further to those who just happened to be in the Courts that day.

The real tragedy being that everyone there knew exactly what people like this are and have done to Greece already, however on the upside, it was refreshing to see so many people reel in disgust as the information on these people came to light.

Kostadis Kampourakis - Doctor at Ministry of Healthcare.

Kostadis Kampourakis – Doctor at Ministry of Healthcare! Apparently. . .

The case against us for Slander needless to say was thrown out. We were acquitted and declared Innocent as the Radio broadcast whereby the President (Kostadis Kaburakis) was ‘wrongly’ accused of illegally pretending to be a Doctor, actually came from Legal documents he himself had submitted when making himself President whereby he stated that he was a Doctor, and whereby in numerous online interviews, boasted about being a Doctor!

ACTUP HELLAS, criminal, fraud, lies, slander, persecution, abuse, malpractice

It really is this obvious too when you see them all.

The facts written in this blog and on hundreds of online forums, posts and news stories worldwide, all cover the facts as revealed by five years of Investigation by ourselves, the Ministries Involved and the Journalists who exposed them previously. The malpractice, fraud and persecution as revealed is nothing short of what this NGO has done to myself, the state and others for the same duration that the current Board of Directors have been in charge of, and is something which they maliciously abused whilst trying to live a lie at the expense of any who stood up to them.

Keep the promise

We promised to lie and steal – we did and still do. . .

The facts covered here and on this blog aren’t hearsay or gossip, they are details gained in black and white through appearing at Court, through speaking with Ministry representatives and through first hand experience with witnesses, the lies to which they blame everyone who was there previously is the only thing they can do, as so many have proven to listen without thinking, and without questioning and seeking the facts which ARE available.

Justice, penal cases, Greece, corruption, law, fraud, slander, malpractice

Here in Greece at present, she needs a bigger Sword.

The full saga is still ongoing in a number of Penal cases against the individual members of the current Board of Directors, mainly those responsible for over 15 years of malpractice and criminal acts as covered above, and the full extent of the lies told by these people for so long is available through this blog, more of which shall follow. . . There’s so much to cover unfortunately, but I shall tackle the hypocrisy step by step, this was just today’s saga, finally another battle which was won in an ongoing war against corruption. * Not all the people represented in the Photo of ACTUP above are used with reference to the illegal and criminal behaviour of it’s current Board. Only Konstantinos Zikkas,  and Kostadis Kaburakis are featured, center and far right respectively.

Απάτη – από ΜΚΟ ACTUP

For the latest information surrounding the many Court cases and legal action against ACTUP and it’s board of Directors, please visit the following link :

https://fckdupathens.wordpress.com/the-truth-actup-greece/

* Original article :

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.

Απάτη ΜΚΟ ACTUP ΔΡΑΣΕ HELLAS

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.

An Ode to Kostadis. . .

If it’s your first time on fckdupathens, please take the time to appreciate that this blog does contain strong language and has a mature vitriolic theme coursing through its veins, you’ll understand more if you venture deeper into my world and the world that has been blighting Greece by cretins to which I shall endeavour to introduce you to shortly.

If you’re a regular and familiar with my anger, then please get comfy and share with me the glorious news which shall flow forth, like Champagne from a bogus project. . .

Its time to put the record straight on a few issues which have been the source of much amusement and angst over the last 5 years, to me anyway, and the reason for which this blog came into being in the first place.

To the new readers on here, firstly it’s never been a blog against Athens, Greece or anything to do with this wonderful Country of which I now call home, it was set up to expose and highlight the corruption which devastates many aspects of our lives here in Greece, and a corruption which unfortunately I found myself surrounded by after taking a job with the Greek ACTUP here in Athens.

We only lie to protect ourselves and rob for our greater good...We're just like Robin Hood but corrupt and working for the state!!!

We only lie to protect ourselves and rob for our greater good…We’re just like Robin Hood but corrupt and working for the state!!!

Were it not for legal concerns, I’d have made it the official ACTUP Blog as it was clear when events raised themselves several years ago now, there was no longer an ACTUP here in Greece, there were just a few select people deliberately manipulating the system against itself for their own selfish gain, something which had gone on for (now) – 15 of the 15 years they were in charge, and sadly something that currently still drags itself along, for all the wrong reasons.

ACTUP ΔΡΑΣΕ HELLAS

The best thing is that we’ve lied to everyone for so long, even we forget what we’ve been telling people…

To quote Monty Python, ‘this ere NGO is dead, it has ceased being‘, and that sadly is what it is, and should always be now. If you care or genuinely want to help fight HIV & Aids in Greece then try joining one of the other NGO’s which isn’t quite as keen on self serving State sponsored abuse as this one became.

ACTUP in Greece, 15 years of corruption and shame

Still a better and more reliable way of fighting HIV & Aids n Greece.

A lot of good can be said for the humble cheese grater, more so than the President of ACTUP and it’s merry thieves, sadly.

Its been that way for a long time, and despite the few ill-informed or similarly corrupt hangers-on, it shall always remain this way when you consider that for half of the timescale of which HIV & Aids has been in existence, these people have abused the trust, welfare and resources of a desperately poorly funded and cared for sector of society – not much of a legacy, and one probably best forgotten in fairness.

30 years of HIV & Aids, 25 years of ACTUP‘s and 15 years of corruption! Well done with that. The single most appalling blight on an already stigmatised sector of society, made worse by the mistrust and general malpractice brought on by those in charge of supposedly  helping people in need.

There was a few genuine volunteers who worked there when I first came to Greece, and they all tried to get the help and assistance it needed when the obvious factors came to light 5 years ago, and many of those had given their hearts and souls to the place during their time there.

Those ‘genuine’ volunteers and people all like myself have done everything to try to make ACTUP be something that it once was, to try to retain the spirit and motivation for which it should and could have been, but sadly that wasn’t to be as this sector is a riddled with the same deprived and pathetic 2 faced hypocritical liars as those currently in charge.

It makes me laugh now when I see the so-called ‘interest & concern’ for the NGO by people who in my year there were never EVER present, people who claim to have supported and helped ‘keep the promise’ for so long! Longer still if you speak to the other volunteers who were present during this time and before my arrival, when now, apart from the misguided lies told by the many scavengers of this cause, all those that surround it and misrepresent the truth about those in charge, just to prolong the lie that’s been told for so long that its become almost embarrassing.

Keep the promise.

We promised we’d lie steal and blame others, we kept the promise…

Many of these people just need a cause to be involved in to enable themselves to push  their dire misjudged opinions onto others, others become facebook sh*heads, people who suddenly become online specialists in something they know f*ck all about, and other like-minded armchair revolutionaries who all sit around drinking their coffee’s preaching to each other about how special they are doing what they do, without actually doing anything relative anyway.

Someone who can manipulate these people can do well to ensure that more small-minded sheep all fall into the same trap as the others who came before them as they lap up the horsh*te which has been peddled by a learned man for so long. The same was said to us, and probably those before us. We’d all heard about how the previous Secretary had ‘apparently’ stolen money before, and how ‘previous members’ had been ‘caught taking things’, how they themselves were constant victims by the state, the Health sector and by the ‘establishment’ to which their anarchistic and activist beliefs were consistently under attack. Only to find out that when we approached previous members of the NGO, they painted a very familiar tale about those in charge.

Blind leading the blind

Having a brain isn’t a curse, though you’d struggle to believe it in many cases

Which brings me onto my ‘Ode to Kaburakis‘. A poor, sad specimen of (almost a man), who has spent so long lying to people, I fear even HE can’t remember all the lies he’s been telling people. But seriously, when it comes to peddling horsh*t, we should get this man into the Olympics while he’s still on form. . .

So, just over a couple of weeks ago I had to go to court to stand up against a low life parasite called ‘Kostadis Kaburakis‘, for what was essentially a Penal case for Slander against the afore-mentioned f*cktard above, during which an article in the papers here in (2009) exposed the NGO in which he was President of for numerous criminal acts, not to mention for similarly highlighting considerable truths against him during his 15 year tenure as a moron.

Some of you may know or be familiar with him due to the many hours of dedication I have spent to highlighting his great work here in the Health Sector, some may know this name through his many years of defrauding the Greek State, or some of you may know of him for his work illegally claiming to be a Doctor alongside the other astute members of ACTUP ΔΡΑΣΕ HELLASAndreas Grilleas, also a Doctor, allegedly. . .

It's all about caring, and I don't. . .

Work for KEELPNO, steal state money and when exposed, have your contract extended, BRILLIANT!!!

Other key f*ckwits include Kostadinos Zikkas, a man so stupid in his blind loyalty that he was prepared to hang himself publicly by trying to pervert Justice with his own involvement in this farce of an NGO to which he tried to use my name illegally in their statute for a non legal election in 2008!

ACTUP ΔΡΑΣΕ HELLAS - Impunity without ethics

I know, let’s elect ourselves in again so we can screw people for more of the same. . .

This goes without saying was poorly covered up and catered for by the only genuine member of medical staff that they do have, Chyrysoula Botsi, a woman who happily helped provide false documentation to the Ministries stating that moron (a) and moron (b) were Doctors, enabling them to get funding for causes to which none of them knew anything about, or were experienced in, allowing for funding from extra sources so she could defraud the state later in her career as they further abused their positions and opportunities within this sector.

This is fully covered throughout the many articles within the blog anyway, as are most of the facts missed out by those highlighted in their ‘fantasy version of the NGO’, but that’s for another day and due an update shortly as this is now being dealt with by the courts, as it should have been in the first place.

The ‘Ghost’ member of their board, George Papachristou who is as much of an illusion as the actual good they have done over the years and is also happy in his allowing for deliberate misinformation regarding their criminal activities as proven by the ΥΔΑΣ, (the Ministry of Foreign Affairs) , recently his actions against myself for exposing them also provide cause for concern considering that this is yet another piece of sh*t who is prepared to lie and pervert Justice to try and cover up their lie as well as further help defraud the state as he has previously for his duration as well as for the article which found them guilty as per the investigation that for a year they all lied about, to which he collaborated with, and to which with his knowledge of their previous activities is clearly as poor ethically as the rest of them.

As providing misinformation and attempting to conspire to perverting Justice on numerous occasions is something which seems to be a key trait within this Organisation on many levels,  I look forward to prosecuting them further for the delibarate and personal attacks they have made on myself for firstly refusing to commit fraud on their behalf, for them illegally using my name when they illegally ran their election, and (for so far) 5 years of professional damage, slander and misrepresentation whilst the board all tried to cover this up.

After all, stealing from the state and covering it up , running non legal elections and trying to pervert the course of Justice when exposed is clearly acceptable behaviour within this sector of poorly titled ‘Healthcare’, however it isn’t so with myself and the remaining decent people to whom care about Greece, those in need of help and those who have an ounce of dignity as people anyway. Clearly no one associated within the confines of ACTUP or the remaining few people who prefer to try and persecute me for exposing this f*ckup and the filth which got away with abusing it for so long.

It’s saddens me when I see people associated with these f*cktards defending them, abusing me and supporting people who lied, threatened me, falsely sued me when they know nothing of me. People who are maybe blinded by some false sense of loyalty, misplaced dignity or just general ignorance when they freely disregard the facts, listen to malicious lies spread by the same people who brought this upon themselves in the first place, AND who have never shown any respect for anything.

It’s fair enough to not like me but at least choose to not like me for me being me, not some horseh*t which was fabricated by people who either have no reason to tell the truth of by others who know even less and have to suck into the same barrage of lies just to try and defend their own lack of worth.

The few cancerous growths who are still supposedly ‘active’ (for want of a better word) were all missing and doing f*ck all 5 years ago, and especially many of the years before that, and most weren’t even involved then. Amazing really, 15 years of abusing the very sector that they falsely claim to protect and everyone connected thinks this is OK. Nice. Says a lot about the cause when everyone allows Directors of the NGO to illegally masquerade as Doctors and steal from the state, those who contribute privately and who give their time whilst selling out those with HIV these days is a big media bandwagon for them all to hop on board!

ACTUP ΔΡΑΣΕ HELLAS

It turns out that stealing Tax payers money and pretending to be Doctors is against the Law and to top it off, we’ve ran out of lies and excuses and can’t blame anyone else anymore !

Either way, back to the facts about the b*llshit lies as peddled by the President. It’s important to mention that, despite their case being against myself and the two others who helped stand up to these tyrants, the afore-mentioned turd ‘Kaburakis‘, as with so many of the other legal issues against him couldn’t be bothered to turn up. We knew this as he never intended to, it was to be used as a smokescreen for his many veiled attempts to blame others and to look the victim of a legacy he himself created, this has happened pretty much throughout the 5 years whereby they have tried to avoid the courts, work tribunals and everything else that pretty much shows them to be the liars they are.

Rats after all, are rats. 

Thankfully, this had no impetus on the proceedings as it was clear from the offset that the Judges knew exactly what this piece of sh*t and people like him represent, and after acquitting us, they recommended that the following cases against Kostadis Kaburakis be brought forward for processing in connection with the many issues raised about his character and behaviour during the period whereby he was President of ACTUP ΔΡΑΣΕ HELLAS.

I heard down the grapevine that he classed it as a ‘personal attack’ on his fine upstanding character, well it wasn’t. this isn’t even a personal attack on his fine and upstanding character. Truth be told, you’d have a very hard time tracking back through history to ever define the moment whereby he might have actually had ‘fine character’. But hell yeah,  am I going to defend myself against their lies, I think so. If he’s going to bitch like a girl about me when I expose his lies, then sure, things are going to get fruity and he might not like it, after all – the truth hurts.

When everything these people stole, everything they could have had and wanted to have goes up in smoke it’s got to hurt, especially when history will tar their name with the deliberate malpractice and fraud of a vulnerable sector of people, perverting Justice and misleading the authorities and followers of a cause that they have now destroyed.

Karma started coming along that road the day they thought themselves invulnerable to their immoral and unethical behaviour and treatment of people , and as I’ve always stated, no one is bigger than the law. The sad reality of the few still connected with this NGO is that they haven’t even the sense or morality to either find out the truth for themselves, instead relying the already broken words of bare faced liars. Either that or they are as pathetic and think it’ acceptable which in anycase shows you the true virtue of what the cause has become now as a result.

Everynow and again there are one or two of his uneducated sheep bigging him up on his so called ‘fight’ and it just saddens the heart to know that such idiots could realy still exist. Not to mention those who’ve tried to acquire information for them to use against me, thinking possibly that the things exposed by the Ministries and courts are a lie, and that the people they care for are in fact still human in anyway.

The fact that he in particular classes ‘this’ arrogant enough to be considered a breach of his ‘personal information’ whilst working as a civil servant and lying to everyone whilst he illegally claimed to be a Doctor and robbing from us all, then its been an absolute pleasure being fortunate enough to introduce just a small bit of reality back into his pathetic and worthless life, and yes, now that’s borderline a little personal I suppose.

Etsi - It's just the way it is...

Etsi – It’s just the way it is…

I’ve had to deal with small-minded jumped up opinionated dickheads as a result of these people and their lies for the last 5 years now, people who couldn’t even be bothered to find out the truth, or people who are just so socially inept that they listen to people like these without question for too long, so as I always knew, vindication in part has come.

Think yourselves smart in private because in public your just a dumbass .

My only crime was refusing to defraud the state, and standing up to people who prey on foreigners, immigrants and people trapped within the system – and what happens – I face court case after court case for exposing a criminal NGO which is still living a lie so they can continue sucking each others dicks behind the lie of other people’s hopes.

So before people look down their nose at me and want to tut and moan about me doing what I do, being here and fighting to have an opinion in a Country which isn’t mine, they should maybe take on board that I’ve paid more than my dues here and I’ve more than earned my right to bitch about things, especially when some of those things affected me directly.

People moan about the State stealing your money and Insurance and causing you problems, well I had three of the arseholes doing it to my face and then slandering me for the privelege of defending myself.

To say I sympathise is an understatement.

So, if you want to make the world a better place, get off your fat ass and get a sweat on, it’s the only way anything good will ever come of it.

It takes time, sacrifice and misery, so think of it as a surreal marriage.

Suffering from HIV or Aids, good, F*CK YOU and take a number. . .

Hahaha, you have to laugh at the ignorance of those involved in this sector both here and abroad.

I had to highlight an article trotted out by the WHO (World Health Organisation) in another half expected to pretend they give a sh*t kind of way. News is obviously important business and appearing to be seen is often more important than actually being seen doing anything relevant, and you DO know what I mean.

Here’s a piccy of me about to do some sh*t, and here’s a piccy of me having a sun glazed prune with my Latte before I do the sh*t I was about to do in my last piccy, and guess what? Yes, it’s me darlings, about to do the thing I was thinking of earlier with Phillippe, and look at us now, trying to look like right luvvies as we head off to do that thing together.

Just do the thing. No one gives a f*ck anymore as everyone in the world and their dog, (who with it’s own profile) are posting the about to, on my way and soon be doing the thing photo’s. Get the f*ck on with it already. A normal human being would have done it better, without being distracted or having the need to be congratulated on something as mundane anyway, so grow up. And they’d have fiinished it hours ago.

Of course, socially, it’s very important these days to pop up in the news everynow and again, apparently people are now so stupid and can’t remember things that didn’t appear in their news feed on a daily basis that the world is slowly shrinking! Most now resort to checking their profiles so often because by lunchtime their name begins to fade from memory and if no ones called them recently they slowly find themselves having complete conversations with strangers when it does finally ring. “Who are you, nope, never heard of him, can I help you instead?”.

Well, the same can be said of Institutions, I spent 5 hours wandering the streets of Athens a while back because I couldn’t remember where I lived. As it turned out it was a place called home.

Marvellous, and when I find mine it’ll be even better. . .

So, the article. . . (Ah yes, my point).

http://www.enetenglish.gr/?i=news.en.article&id=1640

One of many core Institutes within this sector who like most, fail to do the minimum requirements when asked of them directly.

Firstly, WHO, I always wondered about the name, WHO the f*ck are the people hiding in this Organisation which clearly has failed so many through inaction when asked. I know it’s a bit long and tedious as a name but apt either way.

WHOTFATPHITOWCHFSOTIWA, I’m not sure it’ll catch on but it’s not really about the name is it, unless the founder was a Cherokee Indian?

So, I’ve tried to tolerate their ignorance when they failed everyone in doing sweet F.A. when you approach them with information aiming to help them and their cause, I tried to put up with this sector’s blissfully dangerous ability to allow immoral and unethical behaviour to run riot amongst those who they pathetically claim to help, and I almost could put up with the excuses, lies and pretence given when many of these Organisations and International bodies knew, know and engage in much of what comes to light themselves through prodding deeper, but really, everything the people involved within this sector needs to be taken with a rather large pinch of salt till they can at least provide some validity in that those connected with this sector actually know something other than being out to abuse those in need of help or care.

Do they REALLY ALL have so little intelligence that their oversighted horsh*t excuse overshadows the largest medical corruption cases to come to light in this sector EVER.

– It’s about the truth, the validity and the honesty exhibited by this sector which matters the most, the care, support and medical attention comes much later I expect.

After Champagne usually from what we’ve seen here in Greece anyway. Courtesy of Chrysoula Botsi of course, her financial management skills taking away the long hard day’s edge from what could have been a difficult day at the crime factory, fortunately the President of the NGO is on hand to fabricate the required amount of bullsh*t documents and press releases for those in need when he’s not too busy pretending to be a Doctor of course. It’s a hard life, but someones got to  fight the system, apparently. . .

Naturally, it’s an easier fight when you, your partner and board members are all or mostly part of the very same system you claim to be at war with, being on the Payroll must have taken away the sting of any unconquered opportunities. But this is the case, staff acting with impunity, with little or no experience for ther own gain being orchestrated by the Ministry and it’s staff who all share the same role,

I assume that long after everyone else’s taken their share, passed around the self serving titles and massaged each others ego’s to a state of delirious numbness during the latest Conference abroad, you know, the times where middle class wealth and capitalist greed consumate their dealings with the poor impoverished scum beneath their feet, those trapped in a system with no escape, trapped with help, or soon to be dead without help, or the ‘fortunate ones’, those whereby money and power can be twisted to line the pockets of those more worthy of such riches as they are manipulated from the shadows, threatened with the prospect of exposure.

It would explain why so many people idly stand by and allow this farce to occur, and certainly give reason to many in positions who happily cover this up.

Those who for so long have manipulated the state and the system to be able to take as they please, unquestioned, and unforgiving as they forver seek to shut down those who oppose.

I’ve watched this for the last five years so don’t try and fool yourself that this isn’t how it is. It is.

You wan’t proof, look online, speak to the Greek CDC, KEELPNO and those connected with it who allowed this monumental f*ck up to exsist in the first place but don’t stop there, ask them why they put the people in place to do it, ask they why they allow people to illegally pretend to be Doctors?

Who capitalises from knowing who they can manipulate with information such as this, ask them why so many people are involved in creating careers for themselves at the expense of those who are abused by these people, ask them why EU, World funding and all these conferences allow such unethical and god awful mismanagement of this sector to take place and then you’ll be able to tell THEM why there is so many f*cking problems in this sector.

Staff employed by the Greek CDC (KEELPNO) illegally pretending to be Doctors to gain access to confidential medical data, allowed to run a front of an NGO to work as it pleases, why? Illegally providing false documentation to gain access to funding both state and European, running non protected phone lines, projects whilst abusing the liberties and confidentialities of those in their trust. . .

According to this sector in general, this sort of behaviour is acceptable. Ask any of the NGO’s who work with either KEELPNO, or the ACTUP‘s who allow this,or the many other International organisations who have covered this up, allowed it to happen, or who more disturbingly, think it’s ok.

It’s a f*cking sick joke to hear people blame anything else other than themselves for believing any of the pre-fabricated lies, the made up statistics which half the criminals involved within this sector have been peddling to people for so long anyway!

The joke appears to really be just how many people can actually pretend to care about this sector when despite so many knowing about such problems, no one does anything about them.

– Business as usual, and that’s what it is. A Business.

Have Aids, F*CK YOU take a number, HIV problems, F*CK YOU, take a number, dying because you’re not being fobbed off by the latest pharmaceutical bullsh*t your paid off Doctor is trying to sell you, F*CK YOU, take a number, or has your confidentiality been sold down the river and you’re now in danger of being manipulated by a sector who prey on people becuase they have HIV, Aids, F*CK YOU, take a number, afraid your medical details will be used by anyone the bogus Doctors chooses for anything, F*CK YOU, take a number and last but not least, unhappy that the state isn’t doing enough to help you, then why not visit a bogus NGO and in the meantime, why not go F*CK YOURSELF while you take a number because they’re probably the same people.

Etsi, they call it here, in New York, one of their activists told me to go f*ck myself when I asked for help trying to highlight this despite them working closely with the President of a fraudulent NGO who was pretending to be a Doctor. So no, why not go f*ck yourself instead with your have a nice day, the difference being that I’m trying to do some good off my own time, and you prey on the opportunity to act live your lie like many others.

Sadly their are fewer people trying to do good than those involved in just doing things that deplete the whole point, and of which many, just have no point.

And that’s the problem with HIV & Aids everywhere, most aren’t legit, caring, sincere or honest, sure not all are bad but you can count those responsible enough to try and help make things better on one hand, a small hand with just a few sad pudgy little fingers.

If you turn those fingers the right way round though, they’ll just tell you to go f*ck yourself and take a number too. . .

What happens here when you try and highlight this to people, you get ignored, threatened, slandered and sued, they don’t like the truth coming out apparently, but as this blog shows, it’s there and is for this reason.

You end up with halfwit dickless morons such as the President of ACTUP here in Greece trying to sue me and two others for exposing him as being a fraud who illegally claimed to be a Doctor to gain access to state funding whilst he himself provided such lies to Ministries when the Board of Directors involved in this bullsh*t NGO all set out to exploit it in the first place.

If you need further proof, feel free to ask Kostadis Kaburakis directly, especially after his court case was thrown out and we were aquitted and found innocent of all wrong doing, having suffered his and the NGO’s lies for so long .

This ingorance and callous lack of respect is sadly why you can take no security reading into reports covering this sector here in Greece.

And the farce goes on…

Further comedy from the two Directors of ACTUP ΔΡΑΣΕ ΗΕLLAS. One (Chrysa Botsi) who was the financial Director of the NGO who is responsible for them recently being found guilty of defrauding ΥΔΑΣ (the Greek Ministry of Foreign affairs) of nearly 200,00.00 euro’s and now being Investigated further by ΖΔΟΕ for their validity and accountability for the period in which they have abused this once trusted NGO –  and then there is the President of ACTUP (Kostadis Kaburakis), responsible for providing false documentation stating he was a Doctor to numerous parties during their ten year reign as self appointed Directors of an NGO which served their needs.

The valid response of Rogue Scientist - Coming from the head of the NGO which provided false documentation illegally claiming to be a Doctor...!

Tweedle-dee and Tweedle-dum come out to play : The valid response of 'Rogue Scientist' - Coming from the president of the NGO which provided false documentation illegally claiming to be a Doctor...!Criticism of projects and initiatives that they weren't allowed to hijack, clearly...

I do regret having to constantly defend myself from their continual lies and slander spread by several members from of this sector as they try and divert the truth however I will always take the Pepsi challenge when it comes to the truth, especially when after being lied to, robbed, slandered and threatened by these people for the period in question I have a deep interest and their actions have defied even the lowest form of morality.

Whilst they still openly deceive people with their illusions of grandeur the reality of the situation is somewhat less remarkable and somewhat sobering with respect to what these people have done and said.

For two years now I have done everything within my power as a citizen to do the right thing, pursued the right channels, gained help and advice to do everything I can to resolve initially a minor problem – only to then be exposed to the bigger picture. Since I have seen members of the press try and cover this up, members of the health sector try and cover this up, members of the international HIV/Aids sector openly try and hide from this, cover it up and pretend it doesn’t exist. I see people connected with this cover it up, lie and people who even look down their noses at me because I am trying to do a little bit of something good.

How f*cking pathetic is that… So, on with the funny bit (ie. funny because it’s real).

Let us not forget that the president was also made the head of KEEΛΠΝΟ‘s trafficking department (the Greek CDC) despite having no experience, no qualifications or any relative knowledge on the matter other than their brief experience keeping immigrants and migrants in the most appalling conditions in a non legal refuge. Whereby during my involvement working for ACTUP they were left without water for over a month and with many other problems which I have tried to highlight as neglected by these people.

C.Botsi was subsequently the head of ESTHER projects and head of a number of committees for the HIV/Aids sector within Greece and incidentally one of the five members of the board who for nearly ten years deceived the state by being witness to their organisation providing false documentation to gain funding for an area that they had no knowledge of.

In 2002 ACTUP ΔΡΑΣΕ ΗΕLLAS changed their legal statute to enable them to gain access to funding to ΥΔΑΣ, this was after the NGO had largely been non active since 1996 whereby they assumed control and set about manipulating the system to suit their needs.

C.Botsi was also the head of HIV and Aids and had access to Andreas Syggros hospital, ΚΕΕΛΠΝΟ and ACTUP‘s highly sensitive medical documentation as she covered up and allowed two of their members of the board to illegally claim to be Doctors for this period.

K.Kaburakis has been exposed in many online forums as having claimed to be a Doctor in many aspects and has allegedly broken the trust and confidentiality of one of their members when information of a medical nature was given. To what purpose would people deliberately seek the medical records of HIV/Aids patients without experience or medical knowledge…?

Would it maybe explain why for nearly ten years they have been protected by ΚΕΕΛΠΝΟ despite being employed by them, allowed to manipulate the state and work without accountability as they further sought to gain access to the medical reports of vulnerable people who would be easy prey for any wrong doings…

I originally worked there from May 2008 as I provided a number of 3d animations and promotional works for the NGO as I looked for work within Greece before eventually offered a full time position by the president (K.Kaburakis). After leaving in February 2009 due to discovering and highlighting a catalogue of Corruption, deceit and malpractice – I then discovered that they had illegally used my name and that of a volunteer as witnesses to their sham of an Election later that year when they illegally elected themselves in AGAIN.

As I had only been in the country a month and spoke no Greek it seemed only appropriate of them to illegally use my name to enable their deception further, after all, how was I to ever find out, plus being a foreigner and stuck without resources I was as easy to use as everyone else they had taken advantage of.

It was only during my last month there whereby I noticed the secretary illegally filling out their Organisational book I noticed my name mentioned and took interest into what else they were capable of. Initially myself and a volunteer had tried to expose what we thought was just the presidents immoral and unethical behaviour but as it later became apparent, the entire board of Directors were as guilty of this ruse and much more.

After having to take them to a work tribunal to resolve monies owed and having discovered that they had also stolen my Tax money which they had withheld, as well as my IKA, they brought out an illegal court case against myself the morning of the trial, several months after I had left claiming that I had lied to SKAI radio when I was asked about the financial irregularities highlighted in May 2009. This was despite them having been notified by ΥΔΑΣ for being investigated for financial irregularities which have now been proven and which have been passed onto higher authority for Justice to be carried out.

Their court case against me served to get their tribunal delayed however only provided me with the opportunity to prosecute them for deliberately perverting the course of Justice and lodging a deliberate case to try and make themselves look less guilty than they are as well as pursuing my initial case with the courts.

Their lies extended further during this period as they also claimed to have had a graphologist examine the documents which the president originally claimed I forged, so not only did I forge my own work contract, twice – with a witness to both of us signing the document I then somehow managed to plant a copy of one of the originals on him so he could then have it tested. It got better when he then claimed that another member of the board had forged them to then stating that the contract was only for six months not a year and that the organisation didn’t employ ‘paid’ working staff, despite having receipts to other members for working as staff which they in turn provided in the investigation by ΥΔΑΣ…! The graphology report they said they had never appeared and was manufactured a week or so before the preliminary case at court early this year, nearly two years after they claimed they had one – claiming I’d forged my own contract.

It seems that I had just come to Greece with a pre-made contract, forced my way into working there whereby no one said anything till they refused to pay me one day… lol, If it were that easy I’d be doing graphics for Playboy magazine…!

The impending cases have all been handed over to the respective magistrates now and the preliminary cases against them have begun in earnest with all respective documentation handed over.

The reason why I highlight this is because for two years they have deliberately lied, launched court cases against innocent people, threatened former members, slandered those who seek to expose them as they continue their parody of being something they are not and have never been.

They criticise the state, constantly belittle the attempts made by the sector in general and the NGO’s, Organisations and Ministries who actually do try to do something, and in return whilst masquerading as Doctors, having deliberately deceived the state, the many people who trusted them, and who then turn on and abuse those who dare oppose such behaviour.

Even now they work with other organisations who also share such little morality as to allow such people the chance to further their deception despite being informed and having knowledge of their activities.

I’ve been in Greece nearly three years now and have seen a lot of the troubles we all face, I hear the stories of corruption and we all watch the news to wonder when it will get better but how will it when these people are the state, this is what your Government allows.

This is their policy on allowing criminals to abuse the state.

First, employ them.
Secondly, allow them to fund themselves and do what the hell they want.
Thirdly, enable them to threaten and scare people who dare  oppose them and refuse to do anything when it comes to light after granting them permission and allowing them access to highly sensitive medical data.
Last but not least, allow them to cause untold misery to anyone who does stand up against the system by spreading lies, slandering all concerned and allowing the farce to continue knowing that people will look on and do f*ck all as the majority of people will all stand by them and try to cover it up.

Well, times have changed…

ΥΔΑΣ showed willing and proved to act responsibility and from what many Greeks have told me, change is happening slowly, thankfully it has to as this has been bleeding this country dry.

I hear everyone questioning their 2 job – 400/600 euros a month (if their lucky) and wondering where the hell the rest goes, and yet when you point out that someone who has lied to everyone for so long has blatantly stolen it from you it’s not hard to work out what needs doing.

KEEΛΠΝΟ can’t even help themselves, the upper hierarchy is responsible and all guilty of much worse that we know about. They are responsible for allowing this to happen and have been proven guilty of trying to cover this up for too long, and as this is only one of hundreds of cases we all know about it’s clear there is a pattern within this Domain.

The sad truth is that this sector has been easily left to abuse the many for the few for far too long. As they all know that the people who they falsely claim to help and represent are already segregated and in a vulnerable sector of society, one which in Greece has been further crippled by the very state run projects that should have been there to protect them by an organisation which protects the corruption it implements.

Since, the activities of these people has come under further scrutiny as new information has come to light on their involvement with Pharmaceutical companies within this sector, and examples on how they receive funding from them too but that will be covered in another post.

If it’s not bad enough having them lie and steal from the state, the many volunteers who contributed, the many organisations and private sectors who all paid for these peoples holidays whilst they project misery on all they come into contact with, it’s an interesting thought to know that whilst manipulating the state sector, NGO’s as well as Hospitals and medicine appropriate to this cause, that they also gain funding from Pharmaceutical companies as well… How does that work…?

Of who’s interest does that serve best, the patient or the pusher who can supply the most Patients, I’ll leave that with you as the story unfolds… Sorry, the term pusher implies that they would be offering drugs whilst getting a pay off from it for getting people to take certain drugs instead of state approved ones which they should be giving to their patients…

How to create your own NGO in Greece.

Saving Strawberry Jam.

Well Its been a while since I had a good old rant, and after this last saga of life, rant I will…

So, after being witness to a corrupt Non Government Organisation that receives funding from the very same Ministries that have employed three of the recent Board of Directors, two of which have been employed by (KEELPNO) and who have worked at Andreas Syggros Hospital as Doctors!

E's Scum

Pretending to be a Doctors Brilliant...

This is despite not being registered or qualified as medical staff! Two members of the board of Directors are in a relationship, one of which is the President of the Board and the other of which is the Financial Director, so, the two responsible for funding and who are also responsible for nearly ten years of non accountability and financial irregularities as well as the complete lack of legal framework in their actions so far, are and have been allowed to do as they want without question. After hijacking an Organisation that wasn’t operating for nearly ten years, of course.

As they have then gone on to implement and work on non legally protected projects, this is after of course, making it possible for them to receive funding from other Government Ministries and Private sector bodies, YDAS and Khiels etc! They then set about putting at risk the very people they claimed to be helping.

Of course, I nearly forgot about ensuring the fact that you could do this for nearly ten years without question or getting caught, the option there was to just vote themselves in, thereby guaranteeing that no one would be able to investigate or spot irregularities as it was none of their business, plus if you work for the Ministries that are funding your organisation, you can just do as you want anyway, who’s going to ask, the other member of the Board…?

As for the Elections, Hmmm… When five people vote for themselves though, its pretty hard to end up with eight votes, or is that just me being a dumb assed simpleton… ! Two of the previous board of Directors claim to not even know about being made directors and only found out several years after leaving, and interestingly enough, three of the Board always remain the same… No clues for guessing which three so far!

So – I began to wonder, is it me or is just the most f*cked up system in the world if when you highlight these issues to the relevant authorities who are responsible for this, that they just try to lie and deceive their way out of what could have been a relatively simple situation. Were not just talking a few facts, were talking hard facts, 400+ pages of evidence… If it were on CSI – you’d already know it was a crime, that sort of prospect!

The obvious approach, (at least to me) would have been to look into the situation, work out the facts, and then act responsibly according to the laws that abide by the system, etc, etc…

The actual events of this last nine months are slightly more bizarre. This is where to me now it gets kind of funny, but in a sick way though.

This is real life. This is in your Government here in Greece, KEELPNO, your Ministry of Health and Foreign Affairs, and sadly too this has been censored by the media till now, we know this as we have been told. They didn’t want to upset a few people and hoped it would go away, thankfully this gave us a bigger spade and enabled us to dig deeper. The first mistake everyone made was to expect that people would be content with further ignorance, stupidity and lies, and like a bull to a red cloth we pursued…

Now fortunately, what is happening is that all the relevant people who chose to do nothing, who abused their positions, who broke their own laws and who failed to act in the interest of the system they are supposed to represent, are experiencing the harsh reality of justice.

Its been hard, and they know this. They make it hard, they hide behind their desks, feeding us their lies, expecting us to swallow their horse sh*t and this is true to each and every one of us. They break their own laws as they don’t expect us to be able to do the right thing – this is an alien concept for them, one that inevitably f*cks them up. They will expect us to give up, believe that we can’t do anything, can’t change anything, and that we will give up the desire and not want to do anything. But f*ck them, we can, we have and we will.

So…Having informed KEELPNO that their own staff had not only acted in an unlawful manner, they firstly chose to abuse their own laws, the acting President then chose to ignore his own regulations and legal responsibilities, they allowed the people who had been brought into question to provide more lies about the situation in a poor attempt to (wish) the matter away, and then for nearly six months they have failed to even deal with the serious issues that they have been personally responsible for.

Employing people to work in a medical capacity who have risked the confidentiality, the security and the well-being of a section of people who needed help, is bad, if Alpha TV channel did it, well, as they aren’t really a medical authority it would maybe be understandable! As this is a section of the Health Ministry, call me old-fashioned but I expect a little more.

Allowing an organisation to receive funding which isn’t legally capable, is it a problem? Obviously not, lets all set up a Non Government Organisation saving Strawberry Jam, ask the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for nearly 400,00 euro’s and I reckon they’ll give it us…! I know this, it’s happened, except the Strawberry Jam thing, that still needs to be saved.

On top of that lets all claim to be members of other International Aid organisations too, just to give our Strawberry Saving organisation extra credibility and I’m pretty sure that even private sector will give us funding, this of course adds weight to our Political aspirations. Imagine also if this organisation had been taking all its influence and power from say, Nea Democratea, suckling on the blue teat for all it can, and then immediately before the elections it was seen to be selling its soul to Pasok, leaving a trail of disgust for all it had taken from its predecessor like a slug.

I’m not one for really giving a damn about politics as it’s not the party that makes the difference, its us, the people, but that’s low by anyone’s standards, however compared to the standards that these people have abided by for so long, it’s the norm.

My disgust is now aimed at the numerous bullsh*t Politicians, supposed Journalists, and others who all failed themselves, their people, and by saying this, its the very duties that are a minimum for them to be what they are, to respond, to act, and to even enquire. But that’s clearly expecting too much for some people.

Everyone says they want to make things better, is sick of corruption, sick of the system, sick of starving and working a p*ss poor job, but when they can do something, they don’t.

The majority of People I’ve met since dealing with this need to be a little more content with shutting the f*ck up and doing something constructive rather than trying to impress people saying their this or their that.

If you want the facts, then please feel free to ask, do something constructive and help make sure this doesn’t happen again!

Thereby concludes my Rant… 😀

The start of the problems come to light…

The story so far…
12:30 on 17 May 2009

As some may know, I came to Greece just over a year ago now, in search of something. I was never too sure of what, but I hoped I would find it somewhere here in Greece. Sadly, so far I’ve lost more than I’ve gained but the balance mentally is getting better and apart from the events that have happened to make me find what I have now found is worth it…

So did I find something…Yes.

I did, it was the belief to try to do some good in my life, to do something that affected others more than it affected me, and with this I discovered things about myself that I now am thankful of, grateful of and stronger for.

E's a Taxi Dude

Oooops, f*cked that right up...!

In this last year I have battled with the law, been attacked by a drunken taxi driver after he had just tried to rob me, had another steal my clothes when he drove off. I was in the middle of the riots in Athens as I tried to leave work and make it home alive… However now I have been finally able to do something good with my life, with what I believe in and with what I am able to do best. Fight for people’s rights…

Mine, yours, I don’t care really give a f*ck any more to be honest, I’ve just had enough sh*t in my life and enough of their bullsh*t to say enough is enough… And am I the only one? Hell no. Your probably the same and if like me you live in Greece than more so than other places I reckon, it gets you that way waking up and risking death getting to a sh*t job, often with no security being treated like sh*t listening to how much the government has been robbing you blind and stealing your pension fund! So, f*ck that, its time to do something.

As for me, it wasn’t by choice, it’s what I have had to do to survive while i am here. Dealing with incompetence has become part of life.

First was Tellasholes, who still after nine months haven’t bothered to inform me of whether or not they might sort me a phone and Internet out, to now OTE who after 6 engineers and two months can’t even ensure I get a regular service, let alone fix or find the problem, welcome to Greece, this is our world and it’s not just here, every where’s has its own flaws, many.

Hopefully soon I will run out of Phone and internet companies and be able to get a line that works for more than a day without fault…!

Sadly for myself anyway I haven’t been at liberty to do my usual ramblings lately as I have had to silence myself somewhat and my usual incoherent waffle has had to have been withheld due to the possible outbursts that may have followed, and the reality that I may have said something I later may have regretted.

Also, due to the legalities surrounding actions of people who are now beginning to understand that justice always prevails, its been a turbulent last few months to say the least due to again the behaviour and actions of people who have no respect for anyone other than themselves.

ACTUP ΔΡΑΣΕ HELLAS

Keep the promise - They did, they promised to lie, steal and rob people whilst members pretended to be Doctors.

Finally though, the beginning of a long line of truths came out on the radio yesterday morning surrounding one of the key matters that I tried to highlight during the course of my employment at an organisation here in Athens. This to me is a huge weight of my shoulders as I now feel vindicated somewhat for all the suffering I have had to endure this last year and to finally get the truth to come out and to have people begin to experience the flip side of the coin, one I have battled with for so long now.

Just to put it into context, it’s a period in which I have starved regularly due to not being paid on time, in which I have nearly lost my house, haven’t been able to pay my debts and in which I have had to rely on the kindness of many to just get to where I am today.

Whilst having to largely stay away from revealing the full details yet, I have to at least get certain things of my chest and breathe a sigh of relief into the burden I have been fighting with recently.

People who shall remain nameless (at least for now), are finally going to have to take a long harsh look in the mirror and see what they are, what they have become and what they are now going to face. It’s maybe a grim fact, and one that has untold circumstances as it sadly affects many more than the few who have been lying to themselves and to others, however this is something that they can reflect upon when they have the time, something I for one now care little about.

The actions of a select number of people who can be traced back to nearly a decade have shown a complete contempt for the law, for morality and for decency. It covers everything from malpractice, blatant disrespect for any laws other than their own, lies and more recently, threatening people, including women and co-workers.

Poor judgement on every level.

It has now set to derail all that it once stood for and could have been due to these people. It now thankfully has been brought to the attention of the media, and the very beginning of all that has been done is set to come to light and expose the people who most chose to abide by their own arrogance, greed and complete lack of respect for others.

I was taught to fight for what I believe in, and that sometimes life kicks you hard, but you’ve just got to get up, dust yourself down, then kick it in the balls.

I’ve been lied to for over a year now by people who I had worked extremely hard for. Not just in doing my job but in doing other jobs, and trying to do theirs as they couldn’t.

In doing this myself, a colleague and a volunteer exposed what for some time we’d suspected all along. It wasn’t because we wanted to, far from it. We had to do something to try to make what others had failed to do for so long happen before everything collapsed around us.

Now though, the truth is coming out.

It sometimes might not be as speedy as you want it to, it might not be how you imagined it to, but it does come out.

And I for one won’t rest until it does.

I am now having to pursue certain matters due to consequences and actions of some of these people and sadly will take great delight in helping them reap all they have sown. Many were told of the circumstances and the possible consequences when we tried to help them clear themselves. By showing us faith in their honesty and by their actions would have proven that there was error on our part and that it wasn’t how it appeared.

So what did they do, they changed the locks the next day and then tried to make out they we’re victims of a conspiracy to destroy all they had worked so hard for… Erm, yeah right…

Now after three months of enquiries, seeking legal advice, consulting the relevant authorities and looking into the full-scale of what has happened and what else has come to light, it has not only shocked even myself, but everyone I know who is now discovering the magnitude of what has gone on.

I have had some fantastic help from some people I know who have worked ruthlessly helping the facts get to be revealed, and still help from people who I didn’t know till now, such is the extent of the situation and how people have felt the need to be involved once they knew. I have been very lucky in meeting people since I came to Greece though despite the troubles, and people tend to surprise me regularly by their willingness to help. More so in this case as it seems quite clear to most as they see it for what it is and for who the people are dealing with.

E's Scum

ACTUP ΔΡΑΣΕ HELLAS - Exposed and have to pay back nearly 200,000.00 euro's to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

There are limits to what a person can tolerate and when people who are seen to be in authority, who are pretending to be who and what they are not, people who not only abuse their position but their trust, who steal, lie and bully their way into so-called respectable positions then yes, it is a pleasure to see them end up where they belong…

In the gutter.

One person in particular who WILL be exposed for the parasite he is in the near future, better learn to be a man real quick and grow a pair of balls the next time he threatens me and a friend and colleague. His moment of thinking he is high and mighty went the minute he threatened a woman. Plus a so-called friend and a so-called colleague of many years. Just despicable.

In the UK we have a saying, ‘If it looks like a Rat, acts like a Rat and smells like a Rat, it’s probably a Rat…’

And that sadly in this case is being harsh on Rats…

So, thanks for your time, I just had to get that off my chest…
