Greek court throws out appeals against OLP and OLTH sales


The Council of State on Tuesday rejected appeals by opponents to the privatization of the port authorities in Piraeus (OLP) and Thessaloniki (OLTH).

A number of groups, including local bar and trade associations, as well as stevedores’ unions had tried to block the two tenders.

However, the country’s highest administrative court ruled that the appeals could not stand for a number of technical reasons.
