A Chinese national set up an illegal “wedding business” in Fira on Santorini island, Greece. The man who had a French passport had rented two hotel rooms and had turned them into a studio for wedding preparation. In the rooms police found 38 wedding gowns and 60 different kinds of make-up.
The investigation revealed that the Chinese man had a website and offered services to couples that wanted to get married on Santorini.
Two more Chinese nationals without residence permission were working in the same business.
The Tax Bureau found that the illegal business owner has conducted 14 weddings in the last three years without receipts and did not pay taxes to the Greek State.
