Con­tro­ver­sial Athens Fer­ris wheel comes down

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Work be­gan yes­ter­day on the dis­man­tling of a Fer­ris wheel in­stalled at Syn­tagma Square which author­i­ties have deemed not to meet the nec­es­sary safety reg­u­la­tions. The City of Athens said that the pri­vate com­pany which set up the wheel did not sup­ply the nec­es­sary safety cer­tifi­cates. The firm said it had asked for an ex­ten­sion to pro­duce all the nec­es­sary doc­u­ments but its re­quest was turned down by mu­nic­i­pal author­i­ties. The af­fair, de­scribed in the lo­cal me­dia as a de­ba­cle, led to the res­ig­na­tion of the of­fi­cial re­spon­si­ble for the city’s cultural af­fairs.
