Fi­nance Min­istry in­un­dated with ap­pli­ca­tions for debt set­tle­ment

Kathimerini English - - Focus -

a few days, some 40,000 state debtors have sub­mit­ted on­line ap­pli­ca­tions to join the new pay­ment pro­gram of up to 100 in­stall­ments, with the to­tal amount of debts slated for re­pay­ment adding up to 500 mil­lion euros, ac­cord­ing to fig­ures re­leased by the Gen­eral Sec­re­tariat for Pub­lic Rev­enues. This fig­ure has al­ready ex­ceeded the ex­pec­ta­tions of the gov­ern­ment, but its cred­i­tors are in­sist­ing that the plan should not ac­com­mo­date debtors who have en­tered pre­vi­ous debt ar­range­ments. They ac­count for some 30 per­cent of the ap­pli­cants for the new plans, or about 12,000 debtors.
