Animal torture case on Crete prompts response by minister

Agriculture Development & Food Minister Makis Voridis said on Thursday he will introduce in parliament a stricter disciplinary code for people who torture animals.

Appalled by the recent torture and mutilation of a dog in Chania, Crete by its owner that has been publicised online, Voridis announced, “The recent extreme torture of an animal that took place on Crete highlights the need of introducing a tougher penal framework, which will make prosecution and punishment of animal torturers more effective.”

“Soon we will propose in parliament a tougher legislation of this kind,” he noted.
