Mitsotakis Says Children in Charity Probed for Sex Abuse Safe Now

November 27, 2022

ATHENS – While an investigation is ongoing into reports of sex abuse at a Greek children’s charity, Kivotos tou Kosmos (Ark of the World) Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis assured that those living there are protected.

In an interview on Alpha TV he said that while it’s best for children to live with families, including as adoptees or in a foster home, he was confident a new board appointed by the New Democracy government will make sure they are safe now.

The interview veered off into other areas, including health care for older women as he urged them especially to be diagnosed for breast cancer, noting that his sister had contracted it, revealing that on social media.

There is a free mammogram program established in the memory of former KINAL Movement for Change leader Fofi Gennimata who perished from the disease. He said his sister’s case was found early and she’s undergoing treatment.

In the wide-ranging talk, he discussed the government’s initiatives to protect animals and those to deal with sex-based violence and with domestic violence which has become rampant in the country.
