The Council of State, in a ruling issued on Monday, found that a ministerial decision allowing shops to open on Sunday in three specific regions in Greece was unconstitutional. The measure had been introduced as a pilot scheme on July 7, 2014 by the then development minister and then suspended pending the court's final ruling, after it was challenged as unconstitutional by trade associations and unions.
...
The court found that the laws, issued in 2013 and 2014, were contrary to the 1909 law establishing Sunday as a day of rest for all shops and businesses, with the exception of specific categories such as recreational establishments, restaurants, tavernas, cake shops, coffee shops and shops selling goods for tourists. 
...
According to the CoS ruling, the law was contrary to article 43 of the Constitution, which requires that matters such as designating tourism areas are regulated through the issue of presidential decrees, not ministerial orders. Noting that this was independent of reasons relating to the religious freedoms of Christians, the court cancelled the relevant ministerial decision as illegal.

The court's ruling also referred to the rights of workers and citizens to free time and a regular break from work within the week, noting that this promotes health and other aspects of personal life that are protected by the Constitution. It also noted the additional benefits arising when workers are able partake in a collective day of rest common to all, such as the Sunday holiday, which has been established by long tradition in Greece and the other states of Europe.


Truth is truth.
