Min­is­ter asks for quicker probe into waste­ful spend­ing

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Health Min­is­ter An­dreas Lover­dos yes­ter­day asked Athens Court of First In­stance pros­e­cu­tor Eleni Raikou to speed up an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into pro­cure­ment at all state hos­pi­tals which have come un­der the spot­light due to wide­spread waste­ful spend­ing. The aim of the probe is to trace hos­pi­tal man­agers and other staff re­spon­si­ble for waste­ful prac­tices be­lieved to have cost the state mil­lions of eu­ros. The debt-rid­den health sec­tor is ex­pected to be the next to come un­der close scrutiny by Greece’s in­ter­na­tional cred­i­tors, who are push­ing authorities to cut spend­ing and raise rev­enue.
