On Monday, January 18, the Greek trade unions will make the final decision whether the borders will be blocked. This is the latest information, Bulgarian consul general in Thessaloniki Lachezar Ivanov said.
On the one hand, there are worries the protestors’ blockade could be declared illegal and the police could arrest them. For now the official information is for blockade of Exohi-Gotse Delchev checkpoint on the Greek-Bulgarian border and Evzoni-Gevgelija checkpoint on the Greek-Macedonian border.
For now Promahon-Kulata checkpoint on the Greek-Bulgarian border is not mentioned although the police in Serres express concern the road between Serres and Thessaloniki could be temporarily closed, he added.
