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 - For 5 days journalists and representatives of international organizations and independent media will come together to share experiences and exchange ideas and knowledge on the matter of trust in journalism, iMEdD says in its announcement .
