Several vehicles operated by international non-governmental organizations on the island of Lesvos have been seized by the Greek customs authorities.
According to Athens News Agency, the vehicles had been violating Greek and European laws, according to which license plates should be changed if a vehicle operates for more than six months in a different country than the one that issued the plates.
The vehicles had plates of several EU countries and were operated by persons that had no private or labor relation with the owners who were “unknown EU citizens.”
The vehicles were in Lesvos for more than six months and some for a whole year.
Authorities confirmed the fines to be paid and were informed that owners had no interest to either pay the fines or reclaim their cars.
They have been transferred into a closed parking of the customs authorities, and they are either to be given to public services in need of transportation means or be auctioned. (source)
