Un­be­liev­able over­sight

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

One of the terms in the deal Greece signed with its in­ter­na­tional cred­i­tors in ex­change for bailout fund­ing is that the state must draw up a com­pre­hen­sive list of all the prop­erty and real es­tate as­sets it owns on Greek soil, which would in­clude de­tails of their ex­act sta­tus. As un­be­liev­able as it may sound, such a list does not ex­ist, not even for one of the most valu­able pieces of real es­tate in At­tica, down on the cap­i­tal’s south­ern coast, known lo­cally as the Athe­nian riviera. What is even more in­cred­i­ble is that the Agri­cul­tural Min­istry and other state ser­vices are re­fus­ing to hand over the in­for­ma­tion needed for such a list to be com­piled. The fact that the Greek state can­not be sure of what it owns and where shows, once more, that it is com­pletely in­ca­pable of putting its house in or­der and tak­ing the steps nec­es­sary for it to draw up a plan on how to uti­lize its as­sets.
