Relatives of armed forces staff who fell in line of duty given jobs
The Administrative Reform Ministry on Friday announced the appointment of 72 people from families who lost a relative in the line of duty in the Greek armed forces.
The initiative followed a decree signed on Tuesday by Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis allowing for one member of the families of police officers and firefighters who died in the line of duty to apply for a job in the civil service.
The decree was drafted by the Ministry of Public Order and presented to Mitsotakis by his counterpart Nikos Dendias.
"Despite the limited resources we have to make hirings in the public sector, we thought it our duty to satisfy the long-overdue demands of the families of police officers and firefighters who fell in the line of duty for one of their members to be appointed,» Mitsotakis said after signing the decree.
