Apparently Kefalonia and Ithaka will benefit(?) from infrastructure projects to the value of 1,000,000 euros. No details as yet.

Greece Vows to Toughen Animal Abuse Laws

In response to the recent outrage over the horrendous torture of a dog in Chania, Crete, the Greek government has vowed to pass stricter disciplinary codes for animal abuse.

The Minister of Rural Development and Food Makis Voridis has stated that he will push to introduce a stricter criminal framework in order to allow for more effective prosecution and punishment of animal abusers in Greece.

“The recent extreme torture of an animal that took place on Crete highlights the need of introducing a tougher penal framework, which will make prosecution and punishment of animal torturers more effective,” Voridis stated. “In the immediate future, we will propose the adoption of such legislation to Parliament.”

This announcement comes following the alleged animal abuser turning himself in to local authorities on Thursday. He has subsequently been fined €30,000 for the abuse and been suspended from his place of employment as well while the investigation is open.

Experts Say First Pre-Human Lived in Northern Greece-Balkan Area

Researchers have found evidence that the link in the lineage of the great apes and humans took place in the Eastern Mediterranean — not in Africa — and that the first pre-human, or hominin, walked in the Northern Greece-Balkans area, according to research published in the scientific journal PLoS One and ScienceDaily.
https://greece.greekreporter.com/2020/10/09/experts-say-first-pre-human-lived-in-northern-greece-balkan-area/

Contrary to scientific opinion, pre-humans haven't died out. There's one in Hania, Crete.

Drunken Tourists Steal Bus, Go On Naked Joyride on Greek Island

A group of drunken tourists partied just a little too hard on the Greek island of Poros on Thursday.

According to reports in Greek media, the group of ten, all from the Netherlands, finished up their night of drinking with an illegal bus ride that leaves little to the imagination.

After coming across the parked public bus, the inebriated tourists broke in and took two trips around the island for some naked sight-seeing.
