  • Description

    IN THE MEGAR CITY AND PAHI AREAS OF GREECE, 42 MILES FROM ATHENS, FARMERS ARE BITTERLY OPPOSED TO THE EXPROPRIATION OF THEIR LAND TO MAKE WAY FOR PART OF THE ONASSIS GROUP INVESTMENT PLAN WHICH IS PART OF HIS $ 600 MILLION INJECTION INTO GREEK INDUSTRY.

    THE AREA IS BEING DIRECTLY AFFECTED BY THE ONASSIS PLAN. SOME OF THE INHABITANTS HAVE APPEALED TO THE HIGH COURT IN AN EFFORT TO CANCEL THE EXPROPRIATION, WHILE OTHERS HAVE APPEALED TO AN ATHENS COURT DEMANDING "REASONABLE PRICE FOR THEIR LAND." ONASSIS HAS OFFERED FARMERS FROM GBP15 TO GBP150 PER ACRE, BUT THE FARMERS SAY THAT THEIR LAND IS WORTH GBP2,000 PER ACRE.
