Papademos' condition stable, doesn't warrant concern, says hospital




Former Greek premier Lucas Papademos remains at Evangelismos hospital following injuries sustained in a bomb blast but his condition is stable and does not warrant concern, the hospital said in a statement on Thursday.

“After providing first aid for several superficial wounds to the chest, abdomen and thighs, he underwent full clinical and laboratory testing. It was decided to clean the wound on the front right
thigh through surgery, which he is undergoing now. It was judged that his condition is stable and doesn’t give rise to any concern,” the hospital said.
It also said the two other people in the car sustained only superficial wounds for which they received first aid and will remain in hospital for precautionary reasons.
Members of the government, Bank of Greece Governor Yannis Stournaras and other political and public figures have gone to Evangelismos to inquire about his condition. Among them was government spokesman Dimitris Tzanakopoulos, who said that Papademos' condition was stable and that he was undergoing all necessary tests.
Tzanakopoulos also expressed the Greek government's unequivocal and categoric condemnation of the terrorist attack.
Papademos, a central banker and ECB vice-president who served as the head of Greece's caretaker government from November 2011 until May 2012, was injured in what authorities suspect was a letter-bomb explosion that occurred while he was driving through downtown Athens in his car.
