Council of State Revokes Transferring Casino from Mt Parnitha to Marousi

January 15, 2021

ATHENS — The Council of State, in a ruling announced on Friday, has revoked a Joint Ministerial Decision issued under a 2017 law for the transfer of the Mont Parnes Casino from Mount Parnitha to the Athens suburb of Marousi.

The judges found that the law for the casino's transfer was "made-to-measure" for the individual case, in contravention of fundamental legislative practice.

The ruling means that the investment is now blocked as the CoS decision is irrevocable. The case was brought before the court by the Halandri Municipality and the Loutraki casino, as well as local residents.



ATHENS - Amid complaints that letting rich foreigners qualify for Greek Golden Visas by buying property has dried up supplies and driven up rents and purchase prices, more investors want to take advantage of putting money in bank deposits.
