30.10.2012: Hellenic Shipyards and I. Safa
From the golden age of Greek tycoon Stavros Niarchos to today’s work stoppage Tasos Telloglou investigates the past, present and future of the once most prominent Greek shipyard, the Hellenic Shipyards. The “New Files” enter the shipyard and document the everyday life of almost 1000 workers that show up for work almost every day despite the fact that they haven’t been paid for months. The “New Files” investigation exposes a series of past mistakes in the managing of the shipyard as well as telling details and major missteps during the negotiations between the Greek government and current owner of the shipyard, the UAE Abu Dhabi Mar group through interviews with key players within the Ministries of Defense and Finance. Tasos Telloglou also sits down with managing director of Abu Dhabi MAR Mr. Safa in a Greece exclusive.
