Mitsotakis funeral to be held at public expense, with serving premier’s honours

The funeral for former Greek prime minister Constantine Mitsotakis, who passed away in the early hours of Monday morning, will be held at public expense and with the honours reserved for a serving prime minister, based on a joint ministerial decision signed by the interior, national defence and finance ministries on Monday.

There will be a four-day period of public mourning, starting from the day of his death, and from Monday until the day of his funeral flags will fly half-mast on all public buildings, local government buildings, public-sector legal entity branches and banks.
