Greece’s Mitsotakis pledges first pensions increase in over a decade
Prime minister announces €5.5 billion cost-of-living relief package that also includes minimum wage boost.

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis promised increases in pensions and the minimum wage as part of a €5.5 billion relief package announced Saturday that aims to cushion the impact of the energy crisis and inflation.

The pensions increase would be the first since the country's financial crisis erupted more than a decade ago. It would benefit some 1.5 million pensioners.

The minimum wage would rise next year, most likely in May 2023, Mitsotakis said.

Greece's has increased the minimum salary twice in 2022 with the monthly gross minimum wage currently at €713 per month, still lower than the level it was before the crisis.

Teen fined 5,000 euros for kicking cat

A 15-year-old girl from Rethymno, Crete, was fined 5,000 euros for violently kicking a cat in an incident recorded on video and posted online last Wednesday.

The incident took place in a school yard in the district of Tsesme, where the teen was meeting with friends, according to state-run broadcaster ERT. The video shows two girls, one of which approaches a cat, pretending to want to pet it and then kicks it hard. The video was shot by a cousin, the report said.

On Friday afternoon, the teen appeared at the local police station with her father to testify and a juveniles’ prosecutor has taken over the case. Police said there might be more videos of animal abuse.

What happens to Queen’s corgis now that she has died?
Her Majesty leaves behind three surviving dogs – two corgis and one dorgi

Living inside Buckingham Palace, the Queen’s corgis enjoyed a privileged life, residing in their own room in the palace known as the Corgi Room.

They slept in elevated wicker baskets – with sheets refreshed daily – and were tended to by the Queen herself. Their menu was extensive and included fresh rabbit and beef, served by a gourmet chef.
