Yesterday, as of December 8th, 2005, the Hellenic Telecommunications and Post Commission (EETT) in cooperation with the DA Office and the Police launched an extensive operation to locate and cease the operation of illegal radio and television stations broadcasting from the Pirovolia location in Mount Egaleo.
More specifically, in the context of flagrant crime, investigations were carried out in over 10 containers, and the illegally installed equipment of 1 television and 4 radio stations was confiscated. Further, aerial systems not serving lawful users and lacking in installation licenses were also confiscated. At the same time a technical team of Public Power Corporation SA  found, following investigations, interceptions to its network and interrupted the supply.   
The operation was supervised and coordinated by a competent official of the Piraeus Court of First Instance District Attorney Office and was assisted by strong police forces from the Piraeus Police Directorate.
As EETT President, Professor Nikitas Alexandridis stated, “Yesterday's successful operation falls under the series of systematic actions taken by EETT aiming to fully restore legality in this sensitive radio frequency spectrum area. The response of the DA and Police authorities has been immediate and determinant in achieving success. ΕΕΤΤ expects the remaining competent authorities to take the action necessary to remove from the said location all illegally installed masts and containers in order to definitely eliminate the phenomenon of unlicensed broadcasting.”
