No, it refers to the Hellenic Republic Asset Development Fund, essentially the Government quango (at least, that's what we'd call it in the UK) which manages significant State assets. They also run a number of ports, for example.

I suppose the IMF, or other creditors, may come into play here if they are insisting on the Government paying some money back which is forcing a sale, but if that's the case I doubt they care what is sold to achieve that per se.
