New Greek shipping minister Christos Stylianidis sworn in


The new Greek minister of shipping and island policy, Christos Stylianidis, officially assumed his position on Tuesday, September 12.

This comes after the resignation of Militiadis Varvitsiotis earlier this week. Mr Varvitsiotis stepped down in response to the tragic incident involving the death of Antonis Karyotis, a 36-year-old who drowned last week after being pushed into the sea by crew members of the Blue Horizon ferry at Piraeus port while attempting to board.

The tragic incident also led to the resignation of Attica Group CEO, Spyros Paschalis, that was accepted on Thursday, September 7.
