Interior minister promises Patras mayor to cut red tape obstructing first cremation center

Interior Minister Panos Skourletis told Patras mayor Kostas Peletidis on Thursday the ministry will intervene to lift the bureaucratic obstacles that are delaying the creation of a cremation center in the city.

During a meeting of the two sides in the ministry, Skourletis encouraged the municipality’s efforts to create the first cremation center which he said “responding to a fair social demand”.
