Sakellaropoulou: Recent Extreme Weather Conditions Linked to Climate Change

February 19, 2021

ATHENS — "Οn the first issue of bad weather, I think that these abrupt changes in the weather are linked to climate change and now we must all be prepared and reconciled to these phenomena," President of the Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou said in a meeting with Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Friday.

"Now on the second issue of revelations in the theatre", she said "I am deeply concerned over what is being heard and happening, especially in the field of art revealing an acute problem that probably existed for years, and is now emerging with intensity. Abuse of power, violence – verbal and physical – whether it is in the workplace, or in education, or in personal and family relationships cannot be tolerated."

"People finally spoke and we have a duty to support these people, to protect their dignity and to bring justice. We must also restore the prestige of individuals and institutions where it is needed but it is just as important to respect the rule of law that guarantees the rights of all those involved. It is a very important dimension in this matter. Let's hope that in the course of time things will get the right dimension."
