Cleric claims Jesus wants new highway


Bishop Germanos of the Ilia prefecture in southern Greece claimed at a rally on Thursday that he had been told by Jesus Christ to urge Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis to expedite construction work for a new highway linking the towns of Patra and Pyrgos.

The bishop made his claim of divine intervention while addressing a group of protesters that symbolically blocked a section of the road which is under construction.
