Greek army chief resigns cites ethics dignity

first_img Comments   Share   ATHENS, Greece (AP) – Greece’s army chief of staff unexpectedly resigned Wednesday, just hours before a top government meeting on military policy. A statement from the Army said Lt. Gen. Constantinos Ziazias resigned for “reasons that touch on ethics and dignity, both his own and of the army,” but did not elaborate further.Ziazias, 57, was appointed nine months ago, just before the previous Socialist government stepped down. Changes of government in Greece are routinely followed by new top military appointments, and the current three-party coalition took over last month. But it was not entirely clear why Ziazias quit as chief of staff.
