Greece passes tax and pen­sion re­forms

Fiji Sun - - World News -

Athens: Greece’s par­lia­ment has passed a pack­age of tax and pen­sion re­forms, ahead of a cru­cial meet­ing of Euro­zone fi­nance min­is­ters. Con­tro­ver­sial aus­ter­ity mea­sures could un­lock more in­ter­na­tional bailout money for the coun­try, al­low­ing it to ac­cess a loan in­stal­ment of € 5bn (FJ$11.99bn).

Be­fore the vote, pro­test­ers in Athens threw petrol bombs at po­lice, who re­sponded with tear gas. BBC
