At Evelpidon, today's most important war is between Taxibet, its founder Nikos Drandakis, and President of the Association of Professional Owners of Taxi Owners Thymios Lyberopoulos.
Before the first-instance court in Athens, Liberopoulos's action, claiming compensation of EUR 260,000 for bodily injury in the presence of dozens of taxis and also witnesses – on the Limbropoulos site – Minister of Transport Christos Spiritsis.
Lyberopoulos' statements – described by Taxibeat as untrue and offensive – are endangered by the fact that they have endangered its existence, including those that have led to tax evasion and illegal activity since 2011, where its revenue ends.
Only the minister just stated that before the adoption of the Act 4530/2018 "there was a legal accident, lawlessness and violation of the law, since in some people we had the honor of avoiding honor", while emphasizing that at that time the anonymous references to the ministry regarding how the company paid (drivers received money from abroad). He added that he was unaware of any control by the authorities.
Regarding the statements made by Lyberopoulos, the Minister considered that the latter decided to defend the sector in an institutional framework – as required by its "duty".
It should be noted that, following the statement in the statement, Mr Spirtzis expressed the belief that trade unions should not be solved in the courts.
The "wrongful" reports were reported by the Commercial Director of Taxibeat, who assured the court that the tax authorities regularly inspected the company, while they do not pay income tax because they are deficient.
"Our media reports have struck us and we have been forced to move to justice," he warned. "In the final quarter of the year, the fourth quarter was the top quarter with a 40% increase. The unsuccessful publications and the public speech of Thymios Lyberopoulos, which was strengthened in September 2017, had an impact not expected to increase. They needed additional measures such as hiring management consultants and an advertising campaign worth EUR 270,000 ".
Personally for Thymios Lyberopoulos, she said: "It follows the anachronistic standards. It does not accept the innovations we bring, it does not recognize them. It wants to leave the industry, like it was 20 years ago."
In the courts, they came to support Thymios Lyberopoulos and photographed with him, members of SIRIZANEL, Thanasis Papachristopoulos and o Tryfon Alexiadis, and the Secretary General of the Ministry of Transport was a defense witness Athanasios Vourdas.
