    - Annulment of fines imposed on the unemployed for using mass media of transportation without a valid ticket
    Unemployed, passengers of the mass media of transportation, on whom a fine had been imposed for having been caught using the media without a valid ticket, applied to the transport companies OSY (buses and trolley buses) and STASY (subway and tram) as well as OASA (State Agency coordinating public mass media of transportation in the Region of Attica) asking for the annulment of fines imposed on them between 2 July 2010 and 2 July 2015, as provided by law. However, after almost two years they have not received a definitive reply yet. The Ombudsman’s investigation concluded that, while STASY has proceeded with examining the applications and annulling the fines, OSY has refrained from any relevant actions, based on the former legislative framework. The Independent Authority addressed OASA, asking for its intervention in the form of written instructions to OSY) with regard to the implementation of the law. Following the Ombudsman’s intervention, OASA urged OSY to proceed with examining the applications and annulling the fines of the unemployed that fulfil the legal requirements, even after commencement of the forced payment procedure by the Tax Authorities.
