Kathimerini English - - Focus -

con­tin­ued to pile up in June, as another net 67 mil­lion eu­ros was added to the 5.067 bil­lion eu­ros run up over the first five months of the year, for a to­tal of 5.134 bil­lion added to the huge moun­tain of state ar­rears this year, ac­cord­ing to data pub­lished yes­ter­day by the State Gen­eral Ac­count­ing Of­fice. Fig­ures in­di­cate that the gov­ern­ment cov­ered only a small amount of its obli­ga­tions while cre­at­ing new ones in an­tic­i­pa­tion of the bailout tranche from its cred­i­tors. Out­stand­ing tax re­bates amounted to 1.252 bil­lion eu­ros at end-June, while hos­pi­tals owed their sup­pli­ers 554 mil­lion eu­ros.
