At least 3,200 illegal constructions will be demolished in the wider Attica region and more across Greece, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsirpas said yesterday following a meeting with ministers and local officials.
“Nothing and nobody will be forgotten,” Mr Tsipras said during his talk at the Technological and Cultural Park of Lavrio port.
“The chaos of unchecked construction that threatens human lives is no longer acceptable.
“Whatever harms forests and coasts, whatever threatens human lives, will be torn up. It is an obligation to those who died, but more than that, an obligation to the future generations,” he stressed, Greek national news agency AMNA reported.
Furthermore, he promised an in-depth and comprehensive examination of the causes of the tragedy which resulted in over 90 casualties, dozens of injuries and the destruction of 70 percent of Mati coastal settlement, 30 kilometers east of Athens; he also vowed to take immediate action to correct mistakes and omissions of the past.
