Greece Seizing Venezuelan Assets Over Ambassador Sex Scandal

ATHENS – Greece’s Justice Ministry reportedly has given the go-ahead for the confiscation of assets at the Venezuelan Embassy to pay victims of sexual harassment by former Ambassador Franklin Gonzalez.

That’s to pay former embassy worker Xenia Bouzaranidou, who made the harassment claims, for which she was awarded 32,109.83 euros ($38,189.83) 

The assets seizure will proceed provided that the embassy’s operation is not hindered in accordance with international law, the Justice Ministry said without explaining why under diplomacy that states an Embassy and its grounds are the property of the country occupying them.

The case of another alleged victim, identified only Stamatia M. has not been adjudicated due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Five female workers at the embassy said they were harassed in 2013 by the Ambassador while working there.


ATHENS - Investigators looking into a fire at a factory containing a catering company that delivered tainted meals to elementary school students, sickening them, are said to have found evidence it may have been set to cover up evidence.
