Tourism minister orders sealing of Corfu hotel

The Corfu hotel where two British children died from carbon monoxide poisoning has been closed.

Tourism Development Minister Fani Palli-Petrallia on Wednesday gave orders to the relevant agencies of the Greek National Tourist Organisation (EOT) to proceed to the sealing of the hotel business Louis Corkyra Beach, because it operated illegally given that its special operation mark has been revoked.

Specifically, on October 10, 2006, on orders by the tourism development

minister, the official responsible for the Ionian Island revoked the hotel’s

operation until a report is issued of the investigation by the judicial


authorities into the cause of the death of two British children who were at the

Corfu hotel with their parents.
