Greece: Ban on Take-Away Food Orders Revoked

February 6, 2021

ATHENS — A ban on take-away orders at food stores in Athens, Thessaloniki and Chalkidiki over weekends that was announced on Saturday by the Development & Investments Ministry was revoked later on the day by Minister Adonis Georgiadis.

In an announcement, the minister explained that “the government assessed anew that the temporary suspension of take-away orders would create more confusion and cause more problems. Therefore, we announce that take-away orders will be carried out in Athens, Thessaloniki and Chalkidiki on weekends as it was valid until today.”



ATHENS — A Greek helicopter pilot was sentenced to life in prison Monday for killing his British-Greek wife in their home on the outskirts of Athens and trying to mislead police for weeks by claiming she was killed by intruders in a brutal house invasion.
