Greece steps up measures to stop illegal construction on Mykonos


The Greek government has announced it will beef up security and increase urban planning inspections on the island of Mykonos after a rise in instances of mob-style violence.

Greece’s Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, said during a meeting convened on Wednesday that the police force on the island will be strengthened with an additional 100 officers. Special operations tasks will also be implemented.

“There cannot be an island where some people consider themselves to be above the law. This situation must be dealt with firmly,” Mitsotakis said at the meeting. 

The Greek government has also suspended the issuing of building permits in the off-plan areas of the island.

According to Ekathimerini, inspectors will be unleashed on the island next week, starting from the buildings controlled by the employee of the Ephorate of Antiquities of Cyclades who was recently assaulted.
