Banks and foreign exchange offices normally charge standard 2% commission.   
You may get a better rate changing your holiday money in advance at e.g. the
Post Office.   
NB: some f-ex agencies advertise "No Commission".    
Invariably, they deduct commission before they (don't) advertise the rate.   
Foreign exchange offices are businesses, not charities.

Former prosecutor goes on trial for binning thousands of cases

The former head of the Prosecutor’s Office on the Ionian island of Corfu is going on trial on Tuesday, accused of abuses of power and the manipulation of public documents that resulted in thousands of criminal charges being dropped.

Maria Tataki, former prosecutor of Corfu’s First Instance Court and head of the island’s prosecutorial service, first came under investigation in 2019 when judicial authorities noticed that some 3,000 case files had disappeared from her docket without being resolved.

As a result of Tataki’s actions, hundreds of suspects facing criminal prosecution for a range of offenses got off scot-free, according to investigators.
