Persecuted christians - Conference at the European Parliament about the persecution of Christians in Sub-Saharan Africa (Credit: MEP Bert-Jan Ruissen)

Break the silence on persecuted Christians

MEP Bert-Jan Ruissen held a conference and exhibition at the European Parliament to denounce the silence surrounding the suffering of persecuted Christians worldwide. The EU must take stronger action against violations of freedom of religion, especially in Africa where lives are lost due to this silence.

King Felipe and Queen Letizia attended the funeral of King Constantine of Greece at the Cathedral of the Annunciation of Saint Mary in Athens, where they were accompanied by His Majesty King Juan Carlos, who travelled from Abu Dhabi; Her Majesty Queen Sofia, who has been in Greece since the deterioration of her brother Constantine’s health; and the Infantas Elena and Cristina.
The funeral, which was officiated by the Archbishop of Athens, Hieronymus of Thebes, was attended by the Deputy Prime Minister, Panagiotis Pikrammenos, representing the Hellenic Government. Representatives of numerous Royal Houses were also present, due to his family ties, friendship and his status as a former Head of State.

After the funeral, at which His Royal Highness Prince Paul of Greece said a few words, the King and Queen and the Greek Royal Family moved to the Royal Cemetery of Tatoi Palace, where the burial ceremony of His Majesty King Constantine of Greece took place.

His Majesty King Constantine of Greece passed away on 10 January at the age of 82 in Athens.
