The occupation and the “loot”

The beginning of evil for Mrs. Papahela is located in the occupancy of the City Plaza Hotel, at Acharnon 78 and Katrivanou Street, which began on April 22, 2016 and ended on July 10, 2019, just three days after the national elections.

The hotel belongs to the company “Amazon General Tourist Hotel Enterprises”, of the interests of his family and since 1974 it was leased to Plaza AX. Their collaboration ended, due to non-payment of rent, in March 2010. Since then, the hotel has remained closed, on the one hand due to the inability of “Amazon” to operate it on its own, and on the other hand due to the fact that it was not possible to sell it. and not rent it again.

Given, however, that was the company’s only asset, the owner did everything possible to keep the property in good condition.

On April 22, 2016, a group of 30-40 people, after previously damaging the main entrance and violating it, entered the site with the aim of occupying it to later settle refugees and immigrants there. Since then, and despite their repeated complaints to the Police and other competent authorities, no one intervened to remove the squatters who left… on their own when they decided so.

However, the case acquired international dimensions after the appeal of Ms. Papahela and her “Amazon” company at the European Court of Human Rights, in December 2020.

The ECHR decision mentions the entire history of the occupation, but also the actions of the hotel owner and her lawyer, through which the strange “inaction” of the competent state bodies is highlighted.

The condemnation of Greece

The ECtHR noted that failure of the authorities to take measures to evacuate the hotel from the squatters, although the prosecutor had issued an eviction order, the property fell into disrepair for several years, placing a financial burden on the applicants due to a significant increase in the building’s energy costs.

In the sentence there is, among other things, a special reference to the conduct of PPC and EYDAP, where it is indicated that the solidarity group that had occupied the hotel illegally reconnected the electricity and water supply. Although Mrs. Papahela’s company informed the two state providers in writing about the situation, so that they would not be responsible for any consumption made by the occupants, no one responded.

On the contrary, in March 2017, the company was forced to pay, -with the threat of confiscation of the hotel-a water bill of 81,500 euros, which amounted to €141,990 as of February 12, 2018, plus electricity bills. In turn, the debts with the State for various taxes until June 2017 amounted to 101,885.35 euros, of which 22,000 euros per year corresponded to ENFIA.

At the same time, according to the applicants, The hotel’s net worth due to its occupancy has reportedly dropped from €9 million to €4 million. Also, it is stated that an attempt was made to reach an agreement with the State for the payment of taxes and water and electricity bills that he had accumulated In this context, the State Legal Council was informed in writing, but there was no response.

“In January 2018, Mrs. Papahela received a notification that her personal residence will be seized to cover her debts with the State.”, as well as that he was forced to sell it to pay off his debts, as he emphasized. The decision records his position that he “had to hastily sell his (paternal) house in Kastri below its real value at €1.12 million instead of the €1.85 million that would have been the market price for cover tax obligations and avoid criminal prosecution”.

The European Court of Human Rights concluded that article 1 of Additional Protocol I to the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) had been violated), on the protection of property and decided that Greece must pay the claimants 300,000 euros for lost profits and 2,500 euros for costs and expenses. He also sentenced Ms. Papahela to 10,000 euros for non-pecuniary damage.

As for the hotel itself, as can be seen from the financial statements of the “Amazon” company, it has not reopened since then, as it shows zero turnover, while a temporary order was issued from September 2020 by the Single Court of First Instance. Instance of Athens by which a temporary administration was appointed.
