Funeral service for Constantine Mitsotakis to be held on May 31

The funeral service for former Greek prime minister Constantine Mitsotakis, who passed away in the early hours of Monday morning, will be held on May 31 (Wednesday) at 15:00 at the Metropolitan Cathedral of Athens, with the honours reserved for a serving prime minister, New Democracy (ND) said in a press release on Monday evening.

His body will lie in state at the Cathedral on the same day, from 07:00 until 13:30. The actual funeral will be held on June 1, at the cemetery of Argoulide in Chania, after a service at the church of Aghia Magdalene at 15:00.

ND said it has opened a book of condolences at the party’s headquarters in Moschato. The party also said that it was the late prime minister’s wish, instead of funeral wreaths, to make any donations to the following environmental NGOs for the reforestation of the Lefka Ori (White Mountains) in Crete:
