Public Prosecutor Intervened to Put an End to Cab Drivers Strike

Greek prosecutors around the country have been given a mandate to proceed with all the necessary actions in order to avoid the blockage of ports and airports by cab drivers.
The prosecutor of the Supreme Court, Ioannis Tentes, has threatened the cab drivers with the suspension of their licenses, after the letter he received by the association of tourism enterprises, stating the risks and consequences of the protesting actions.
He also asks for quick briefs and direct hearing of cases for those who obstruct traffic.
On Friday, 22, July, the cab drivers continued the strikes and raised the bars at the tolls of Elefsina, Afidnes, Zevgolatio and Nestani permitting drivers to pass without paying. They announced they would stay at the tolls of Elefsina until late in the evening.
In Thessaloniki, they raised the bars at the tolls of Malgara and they took over the customs of Evzonoi.  In Corfu, cab drivers took over the ticket office of the Achilleion Palace. In the region of Ilia, more cab drivers gathered along the highway of Patras-Pyrgos. In Chania, they took over the tax office of Chania and Kissamos. In Heraklion, they decided to continue the strike and staged a protest march towards the building of the Region of Crete.
