Al­ter­nate Min­is­ter for Cul­ture Min­is­ter Nikos Xy­dakis pledged yesterday to pun­ish sou­venir shop em­ploy­ees at the Knos­sos ar­chae­o­log­i­cal site on Crete if it is con­firmed that they were fail­ing to is­sue visi­tors with re­ceipts.

Ac­cord­ing to a re­port by the TVXS web­site, un­der­cover Fi­nance Min­istry in­spec­tors vis­ited the site re­cently and found that the eight shop em­ploy­ees failed to is­sue any re­ceipts to cus­tomers. In­stead, they al­legedly logged the sales in a ledger.

When chal­lenged by the in­spec­tors, the em­ploy­ees claimed the cash register was not work­ing but this al­legedly proved not to be true.

“We will wait for the of­fi­cial find­ings of the tax author­i­ties be­fore we pro­ceed with swift dis­ci­plinary ac­tion,” Xy­dakis said.

“We have zero tol­er­ance for public sec­tor work­ers who fail to de­fend the public in­ter­est,” he added.
