SITESAP website εκτός λειτουργίας
The SITESAP website has not been working for a month now. The initial problem was with the server that hosts it, where all the websites it hosted were down, and our website has also been hacked. Efforts are being made to bring the page back up and we are also considering taking legal action against the provider. The goal is to upgrade the website.
The legislative initiative of YNANP to amend the relevant provision concerning the equipment of the pharmacy of our ships was rejected by the legislative committee of the Parliament.
