Greek Road Operator Flooded with Fraud Claims Over Snowstorm

ATHENS – A big January snowstorm that saw as many as 3,500 people trapped in their vehicles on the Attiki Odos ring road around the Greek capital has seen almost 12,000 people claiming they were there and also need compensation.

The road company management said people would have to show proof they were there and there are also surveillance cameras but the offering of payment for those stuck overnigh – ordered by the New Democracy government pressure, has seen thousands of undocumented claims, said Kathimerini.

The operating company Attikes Diadromes on Feb. 5 began taking claims for a 2,000-euro ($2158) payment for their ordeal and while 580 people have received the money the rest are waiting.
The false applications will be denied, the paper said, with no report if anybody would be prosecuted for fraud even though they could be identified through their documents making statements of being there.
