A foreign will may not be applicable in Greece

Many Greeks living abroad or even non-Greeks, who own assets in Greece, make their Will, to direct where they wish to leave their property. With regards to property they own in Greece, their goal must be to draft a Will which will be straightforward in its application, according to Greek law and practice. What must be avoided in the text of the Will is wording, which may be adequate for a Will in the country of their residence, according to laws and practice in that country, but which will create immense bureaucratic delays or even legal deadlocks when legal practitioners in Greece attempt to implement it.

The article says "the current internet speed in Greece ranges between 5-50 Mbps".  I have 200Mbps both download and upload (fibre optic with Hellenic Cable Networks, or HCN), and that is not an "up to" speed, but what I actually get on speed tests.  So much for the "superfast" 150Mbps in the article, quoted as "the fastest in the telecommunications market"!!

Greece reimposes COVID-19 curbs after Christmas easing

Greece will tighten coronavirus curbs for a week from Sunday, closing hair salons, bookstores and some other shops that had been allowed to reopen in the run-up to Christmas, the government said on Saturday.

Most shops remained closed during December in Greece but the seasonal easing of restrictions provided a little relief for some hard-hit retail businesses.

The new, tighter rules will come into force on Jan. 3, government spokesman Stelios Petsas said in a televised statement. A night-time curfew will start at 9 p.m., an hour earlier than before.
