  • [01] DIMAR: Eurogroup decision for Cyprus a ‘harsh measure'

    AMNA--"Eurogroup's decisions for Cyprus bring the country's political leadership and people before crucial choices," the Democratic Left (DIMAR) party said in a written statement issued on Monday evening.

    "The imposition of a levy on small deposits is a harsh measure," said DIMAR, adding that "the specific decision should be amended to allow more tax brackets aimed at reducing the burden on such deposits." amna

    According to the party, it is highly crucial that a European aid package does not include measures which would lead Cyprus economy to recession, such as reductions to wages and pensions.

    As agreed by the Eurogroup on March 16, 2013 the branches operated by Cyprus banks in Greece will be transferred to a Greek banking group in order to fully safeguard deposits and financial stability.

    The finance ministry also said that certain Greek banks have already expressed interest to obtain the branches of Cyprus banks. The final approval lies with the Bank of Greece. amna
