Fears about squat safety

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The Poly­tech­nic of Crete is call­ing for the evac­u­a­tion of a for­mer mil­i­tary build­ing in Ha­nia, cur­rently un­der oc­cu­pa­tion by mem­bers of anti-es­tab­lish­ment groups, cit­ing fears about the struc­ture’s sta­bil­ity and safety con­cerns.

The poly­tech­nic out­lined its con­cerns in a let­ter to Ci­ti­zens’ Pro­tec­tion Min­is­ter Nikos Toskas which was copied to Ed­u­ca­tion Min­is­ter Costas Gavroglou and Cul­ture Min­is­ter Ly­dia Ko­nior­dou. It cites the find­ings of an ex­pert com­mit­tee that ex­am­ined the build­ing re­cently and high­lighted con­cerns about its struc­tural re­silience. The poly­tech­nic’s rec­tor Vas­silis Di­galakis told Kathimerini that an in­vestor had pledged to un­der­take the cost of re­pair­ing the build­ing.
