Following recent Athens press reports, in relation to the draft document for the Organization of the Nursing Officers Academy, the Hellenic National Defence General Staff announces that:

     The aforementioned review does not involve employment of personnel, and it is being amended in the context of the general institutional and organizational framework of the Academy, that is also under reform, so as to allow cadets to attend the courses at the National Kapodistrian University of Athens instead of the those at the Academy, starting from the current academic year.

     With the exception of this major amendment, all other articles remain as already approved, since 1998.

     Any possible comments by the Counsil of State, staffed by the appropriate authorities, will be considered in the revision of the Organization of the Academy.
