Greek Cleaner Praised for Her Honesty after Returning Bag Containing 19,000 Euros

A cleaner working for the municipality of Athens found a bag containing 19,000 euros and turned it over to the police, Athens mayor Kostas Bakoyannis revealed in a social media post late Wednesday.
The owner of the bag was found and wanted to compensate Evangelia with a finder’s fee. But the cleaner told Bakoyannis the she couldn’t accept the fee, because, as she says “it was her duty.”
Bakoyiannis met with the woman and her supervisor to congratulate them for their honesty in doing the right thing in quickly turning over the bag to the authorities.
“I say a big thank you to Evangelia, not for the bag, but for sending an important message to all: That dignity, humanity and mutual respect are the keys to a better society,” the Athens mayor stated on his Facebook post.

Η Ευαγγελία εργάζεται στην καθαριότητα του δήμου μας.

Η Ευαγγελία εργάζεται στην καθαριότητα του δήμου μας. Βρήκε μία τσάντα με 19.000 ευρώ και με τον επιστάτη συνάδελφό της, την παρέδωσαν στην αστυνομία. Στην Ευαγγελία λέω ένα μεγάλο ευχαριστώ, όχι για την τσάντα αλλά γιατί στέλνει ένα σπουδαίο μήνυμα σε όλους μας. Ότι η αξιοπρέπεια, η ανθρωπιά και ο αλληλοσεβασμός, είναι τα κλειδιά για μία καλύτερη κοινωνία.
