  • [01] Gov't flatly denies press report of troika 'demand' for isles' 'evacuation'

    AMNA / The government on Thursday categorically denied that representatives of the EC-ECB-IMF "troika" ever raised the issue of Greek islands with a population of less than 150 residents being "evacuated".

    According to a finance ministry announcement hours after the "report" went viral on the Greek-language websites, such rumours "have nothing to do with reality".

    An earlier press release by the shipping & Aegean ministry stressed that the "troika (representatives) never raised an issue of the evacuation of small islands," ostensibly because they are a burden the state budget.

    "No one ever raised such an issue with the shipping & Aegean minister. Anyone faced with such a prospect would only consider it a joke, one in bad taste," the ministry added.

    According to AMNA reports, a meeting between a "troika" delegation and shipping ministry officials exclusively concerned problems in the coastal shipping sector, namely, ferryboat routes to remote islands amid the ongoing and severe economic crisis.amna
