Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

In­te­rior Min­is­ter Panayi­o­tis Kourou­b­lis said yesterday that he will sub­mit leg­is­la­tion to Par­lia­ment to stop hun­dreds of civil ser­vants charged with crimes or mis­de­meanors from re­turn­ing to their jobs, as fore­seen by a bill drafted by his cab­i­net col­league Gior­gos Ka­trouga­los. “These peo­ple can­not re­turn to their jobs.” Kourou­b­lis told Real FM.

Ka­trouga­los drew up bill in the pre­vi­ous gov­ern­ment, when he was ad­min­is­tra­tive re­form min­is­ter, al­low­ing 900 civil ser­vants fac­ing charges to be re­hired by mid-Septem­ber if a coun­cil of judges had not ruled on their cases by then. Of the 900 cases of staff who faced charges, 466 have yet to be heard. Of those 466, some have re­turned to their jobs.
