ND spokesman Kikilias accuses government of doing nothing for Saronic Gulf spill

Main opposition New Democracy (ND) spokesman Vassilis Kikilias on Wednesday accused the government of “pretending to be concerned about the environment while standing by as a spectator of the ecological crime taking place in the Saronic Gulf.”

Kikilias stressed that the extent of the pollution is already huge, adding that the inhabitants of Salamina have made complaints about unjustifiable delays on the part of clean-up crews.

Concluding, ND’s spokesman called on Parliament’s Environmental Committee to convene in order to be briefed and take additional measures for the protection of the area.
