Greek man sues dairy company in Sweden for using his image on pots of Turkish-style yoghurt
Σύνταξη/επιμέλεια από τον/την Θεόφιλος Δουμάνης   



A Greek man has sued a dairy firm in southern Sweden after his picture ended up on a Turkish yoghurt product.
The man whose picture adorns the Turkish yoghurt product, manufactured by Lindahls dairy in Jönköping, argues that the company does not have permission to use his image. He has now sued Lindahls for 50 million kronor ($6.9 million)
The man found out his mustachioed face featured on the containers of Turkish Yoghurt made by Lindahls when a friend living in Stockholm told him.
Athanasios Varzanakos told Swedish Radio his friend "was annoyed and asked how it was possible" when informed.
The dairy company said it bought the photograph in good faith from an image library.
Chief executive Anders Lindahl said it had come as a shock when the Greek man lodged a 40-page legal complaint saying that the company had used a misleading image because he had no links with Turkey.
"We bought it from a photo agency so we assumed that everything was in order," Mr Lindahl told the AFP news agency.
The image remains on the Lindahls website despite the legal action.
Relations between Greece and Turkey have long been strained and at times have turned into outright hostility.
