The Greek Government spokesperson has announced that the mosque of Athens will be finally built in application of the law n. 3512/2006, in the centre of Athens (Votanikos area) and will be financed exclusively by the state budget and no other source of funding will be accepted. The mosque much needed for Muslim residents of the Greek capital will be run by a 7 member committee, two of which will be individuals proposed by recognised Muslim associations in Greece and five will be state officials. The only Athens mosque has been promised for long but never reached the implementation phase. The Prime Minister appointed a Commission which will implement the project, composed by the Vice-Prime Minister, and the Ministers of Education, Interior Affairs and Protection of the Citizen (ex Public Order).
