One tax officer was transferred to Chania hospital after a taxpayer freaked out in the local tax office and started to smash office equipment. One of the equipment pieces that flew in the air injured the tax officer in the eye.
The incident occurred Thursday noon, when a woman entered the office. She was furious because the tax authorities had sized her bank account due to pending tax issues.
She furiously asked for explanation and at one point she started to smash computerized machines and other equipment that were on the desks.
A piece of plastic flew in the air and hit the officer in the eye. He was rushed to the Emergency where he received stitches.
The woman was arrested.
The tax office employees association filed a law suit against her for the incident, the equipment damage and the employee’s injury.
