Draft law paves way for hotels to take over beaches

New legislation being drafted by the Tourism Ministry paves the way for seaside hotels to make commercial use of the entirety – rather than a portion – of the beach they face on.

In places like the Aegean islands of Crete, Kos and Rhodes where large stretches of the coast are already given over to successive hotel units, this will effectively mean that the public will be deprived of its right to free access to the water, having to pay an admission fee or a rental fee for an umbrella and sun lounger.

Borders to open for travelers by July 1

The government has decided to open Greek borders for tourists from the European Union, the Schengen area and Israel by July 1 at the latest, but possibly even earlier, from mid-June, Kathimerini understands.

According to the government’s decision, incoming travelers will not be quarantined or required to take a test for the coronavirus.

New organ donor law gives hope to patients awaiting life-saving transplants

Most adults in England are now automatically considered organ donors.

It is hoped the law, which takes effect from Wednesday, will lead to an additional 700 transplants each year by 2023, and spark conversations around organ donation.
