Council of State Gives Stamp of Legality to “The Mall Athens”

February 3, 2020

ATHENS – The Council of State, Greece’s supreme administrative court, has ruled that a presidential decree regulating planning issues for the Maroussi shopping centre “The Mall Athens” is fully legal and settles issues relating to planning permission and other rules.

The decision was reached in a session on January 27, whose details were released on Sunday.

With the signature of the presidential decree, following the CoS seal of approval, the first Special Spatial Plan of the country will become a fact and the until recently “unauthorised” shopping mall in Maroussi will become legal.

The decision was preceded by an agreement of the parties involved – Maroussi municipality, Lamda Olympia Village SA and the National Bank of Greece – on expropriation issues and the financing of shared green space, technical infrastructure and roadworks to ease traffic that the company has undertaken, following a memorandum of cooperation signed in October.


THESSALONIKI – A 27-year-old man accused of spiking a woman's drink at a New Year's celebration and raping a 27-year-old woman was acquitted by a council of judges who said she lied about the alleged assault.
