Labour Inspectorate’s special secretary Yiannis Soukos submitted his resignation to PM Tsipras

The Labour Inspectorate’s special secretary Yiannis Soukos submitted his resignation to Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Monday saying he could no longer stay in his post given the “emerging conditions at the labour ministry”.

“Our work has won the favourable comments of the International Labour Organisation and the respect for institutions, which have slowly started to realize that the problem of undeclared work cannot be solved with witch hunts, heavy fines and legislative intimidation and threats,” Soukos said of his time at the Labour Inspectorate.
“However, with the emerging conditions at the labour ministry I believe, being fully self-aware, that my time is now over,” he added.

Soukos was appointed special secretary on August 2015.
