The sinking of the tanker 'Aghia Zoni II' in Salamina and the massive destruction this caused to Attica's environment and people are a mirror of the kind of growth the government is promoting, stated Communist Party of Greece (KKE) General Secretary Dimitris Koutsoumbas on Thursday, regarding the oil spill in the Saronic Gulf.

"The government and the shipowners bear grave responsibility and this crime must not go unpunished," concluded Koutsoumbas.
