A team of inspectors from the Financial Crimes Squad (SDOE), was on Tuesday heckled by locals at a village in Crete and coerced to leave, before a one-month closure order was issued against the owner of a taverna where the team was intimated, local media reported.

The SDOE team turned up at the village of Archanes in Iraklio as locals were celebrating their patron saint with a church fete.

According to reports, local residents took offense that the tax inspectors chose that day to conduct raids on businesses for tax code violations.

Their displeasure became more than apparent among a group of people at a large local taverna, who heckled the tax officers and threatened them with force if they did not leave the village.

Last summer SDOE inspectors were prevented from leaving the Saronic island of Hydra by disgruntled locals. Police had to be sent from Athens to ensure their safe passage back to the mainland.

Following Tuesday's incident in Crete, the Finance Ministry issued orders for the taverna at which the intimidation was centered to be shut down for one month and for a complete audit to be conducted of its finances.

Seems fair. The tax squad threatens business owners with incarceration for not paying what they decide is their share coffeetime.gif Taxes used to be collected on goods and services not personal and business income. But now it's all the above.
