Illegal activities were found to allegedly have taken place at the Greek sustainable tourism organization, Agrotima, according to a recent report of the public administration inspectors’ agency. Culture and Tourism Minister Pavlos Geroulanos has sent the file to the prosecutor.
As of 22 February the financial records of Agrotima SA (former Agrotouristiki) were under inspection.
The inspection’s results showed that although Agrotima’s share capital is 450,000 euros, only 18.68 euros had remained available. Also, according to the report, the company’s entire capital had been divided for the salary of the company’s president, Brigkita Papastavrou, and members of the board.
In a recent press conference, Agrotima President Brigkita Papastavrou rejected the conclusions of the report and characterized the information as “inaccurate and false.”
She added that the issue would not remain unanswered and she would disclose all proof in court if requested.
Meanwhile, the Greek prosecutor also received last month the report in regards to the Tourism Development Company (ETA) that was also conducted by the public administration inspector’s’ agency.
According to the report, over the last five years of ETA’s operation, the legal requirements of hiring staff were not followed.
