Parents keep their children away from school on the occasion of their strong reaction to the measures against the pandemic decided by the Government for the students of Primary Education.

According to the Police Spokesman, Christos Andreou, the complaints received before them by the Ministry of Education in the last two months are numerous.

The Police is investigating a criminal case since according to the law the students are required to attend until the student completes his high school cycle or the 15th year of his age, explained Mr. Andreou speaking on the show Protoselido.

The sentences for such cases, according to him, provide for imprisonment of up to three months and a fine of up to 1000 euros.
