Public Works and Environment Minister Giorgos Souflias briefing journalists yesterday after a meeting of the Inner Cabinet. Souflias insisted that a scheme to create Greece’s first comprehensive land registry would start as planned on Tuesday, despite a planned strike by property record office employees. Some 3 million people are expected to submit paperwork to have their properties listed but Souflias dismissed concerns that the first wave of applicants, who have to hand in their documents by September 30, will not have time to do so.
