The arrest of the acting mayor of the municipality of Himara, Jorgo Goro, has also attracted the attention of the Greek media.

"Kathimerini" writes in one of its articles that he is accused of corruption and abuse of office "for creating false documents to obtain government land for a former deputy who planned to build a private tourist resort there."

"Another person was arrested and three other officials of the municipality of Himare and Vlora were placed under house arrest. The five face up to seven years in prison if convicted. There was no immediate comment from Goro or his lawyer on Saturday," writes Kathimerini, who points out that "Goro had been accused by imprisoned politician Fredi Beleri of having produced false documents regarding the 5,512-square-meter property for the resort."
