Greek Cops Raid Jury-Rigged Taverna, Party for COVID-19 Violations

December 28, 2020

VOLOS, Greece – With Greece in a lenient second lockdown aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19, police have been looking out for violators, raiding a makeshift taverna that a man set up near Volos and a party on Crete.

The owner of the property in the village of Dimini in central Greece was fined after authorities said at least 10 people were present at the unlawful eatery, seven of whom escaped the raid, said Kathimerini.

The 53-year-old owner was hit with a penalty of 3,000 euros ($3668.43) for defying the lockdown and three people eating there were fined 600 euros ($733.69) for being there.

On Crete, 34 people were charged with breaking rules against public gatherings of more than 10 people when police went into a villa, media reports from the island said.

The lockdown that began Nov. 7 was scheduled to be lifted Dec. 7 but has been extended until at least Jan. 7, 2021 depending on the epidemiological data and what it shows about how many cases there are.
