Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A mu­nic­i­pal po­lice of­fi­cer writes a fine in Athens yes­ter­day as the force re­turned to the streets of the cap­i­tal fol­low­ing a two-year hia­tus. The force was dis­banded in 2013 un­der the con­ser­va­tive-led coali­tion of An­to­nis Sa­ma­ras, prompt­ing an out­cry and lead­ing to a sig­nif­i­cant loss of rev­enue. Fines col­lected by the city from il­le­gal park­ing dropped from around 13 mil­lion eu­ros in 2011 to 6 mil­lion eu­ros last year, ac­cord­ing to Deputy Mayor An­to­nis Kafet­zopou­los.
