This is an English translation of the text:
Aerial spraying over Athens
Question from Fotis Kouvelis to the ministers of Transport and Communications, Environment, Physical Planning and Public Works, National Defence, Health and Social Solidarity.
Citizens are protesting that the phenomenon is being observed of aircraft (civil or military) frequently carrying out aerial spraying over Athens and also over other cities, without it being known why they are carrying out this activity. What is the content of the material they are spraying and what purpose is being served by this spraying?
Because from observation of this phenomenon anxiety is being caused among citizens about possible effects on public health and degradation of environmental quality, the honourable ministers are asked:
- Is aerial spraying being carried out?
- By which bodies and for what purpose and does its content ential dangers for residents and for the environment?
