Judicial Bolt?

Tasos Aliferis, the mayor of tiny Greek island Tilos, may face jail time for allowing gay marriage on his island, a first for the nation. Though the Minister of Justice declared the weddings illegal, Aliferis is sticking to his guns: “I consulted the Greek civil code and the constitution and verified that there is no law against same-sex marriages. The laws on marriage simply do not specify any genders. To me, therefore, if something is not banned by law it is not illegal.” [Telegraph]
