Following the official complaint from 17 Environmental Organisations for the violation of the environmental legislation in Natura 2000 Network areas of Elafonisos, the production company of GNTM was fined, due to the off-road vehicles that appeared moving on sand dunes, which are protected.

In addition, the case is currently at the stage of preliminary examination, to investigate an offense of Law 1650/1986 “For the protection of the environment”.
