Kavvathas: It may be legal but it is not moral

The specific move was denounced by the president of the Panhellenic Federation of Restaurants and Related Professions, George Kavvathas, as at the same time the government has called on the Greek people to celebrate New Year’s Eve with a maximum of nine people. Speaking to News24 / 7, Mr. Kavvathas stated that we are dealing with a case where he is trying to impose the law of the powerful.

It is like saying that in the Hilton restaurant the coronavirus does not stick while in ours it does. I made the formal complaint to the competent authorities of the Ministry of Development, which stated that they would be addressed, as I had a moral commitment to my industry. It is different to offer your catering services to some who travel and have no other choice as the restaurants are closed and it is different to advertise to the residents of your prefecture, because you are addressing them, come and say goodbye to me when the others are closed. It may be legal but it is certainly not moral“Mr. Kavvathas noted in News24 / 7.
