One of the biggest nightclubs on the southeastern Aegean holiday island of Rhodes is facing the prospect of temporary closure after staff at the door on Thursday night prevented a team of tax inspectors from entering the premises.

According to reports on Friday, one of the bouncers told the inspectors that they wouldn’t be allowed into the establishment and added: “Go, now, before things get nasty.”

The inspectors (their number was not reported) left the nightclub and compiled a report on the incident that was submitted to the Finance Ministry.

According to a new regulation, businesses found repeatedly guilty of tax evasion or of failing to cooperate with authorities face a 48-hour shutdown and stiff fines.
