The union rep­re­sent­ing firms sup­ply­ing state hos­pi­tals with con­sum­ables said they would lift their em­bargo on sup­plies in emer­gen­cies un­til May 10 but only if the hos­pi­tals make good on out­stand­ing debts. Pana­gi­o­tis Stravolaimos, the pres­i­dent of the union rep­re­sent­ing the sup­pli­ers, told Skai that the gov­ern­ment had adopted an attitude sim­i­lar to the “I Won’t Pay” cam­paign whereby cit­i­zens refuse to pay toll sta­tion fees and more ex­pen­sive pub­lic trans­port tick­ets. Stravolaimos said that his con­tact with gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials had been lim­ited to a two-minute tele­phone call. As for the bonds given to sup­pli­ers by the state to pay off some of the out­stand­ing debt, the union chief said that these had been ac­cepted fol­low­ing a 40 per­cent re­duc­tion in their value.
