Village in Northern Greece Left Without Electricity Amidst Cold Weather

PPC and the Minister of Environment, Energy and Climate Change, Mr. Papaconstantinou, have demonstrated the full capacity of their indifference towards the Greek people not only facing harsh austerity measures, but lately the extremely cold weather conditions as well.
Northern Greece is suffering under the waves of snow and strong winds, but this does not seem to be the only problem. In the village Neochori, Serres, some 60 houses have been left without electricity during these freezing days because their owners have not paid their special land tax bills.
Although temperatures hit an average of -10 Celsius, the president of the Neochori Community contacted the TV daily show of George Papadakis on Ant1 private channel, in order to protest over the cruelty of the PPC officials who did not even care that some of the families included five young children.
Greek daily newspaper Proto Thema contacted the PPC in charge in Serres, who in turn blamed the entrepreneur in charge. According to the PPC, the electricity company told the entrepreneur not to cut the electricity at any house as long as the extremely cold weather continues, even if the owners had not paid for the special tax.
PPC claimed that it has ordered the immediate restoration of electricity, but the truth is that people in Neochori have been suffering from the cold for several days.
