  1. Forget the Full Moon— What we want to know is why is ex-finance minister Papcontantioniou allowed to travel outside Greece to UK when he is on trial for fraud here? What..? They just let him free to run outside without bail? Absurd!!
    What kind of incredibly “stupid” Gov’t & Justice are running this country?

    READ from BBC News today: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/busi

    Greece’s former finance minister, George Papaconstantinou, has told
    HARDtalk the country might need another bailout and there was “probably a
    need for additional debt relief.”

    Speaking for the first time since the Greek parliament voted for him to face criminal charges for having allegedly tampered with a list of suspected tax evaders, Mr Papaconstantinou said he had a “clear conscience” over the way he handled the financial crisis.

    Ha! what a joke letting him travel freely– incompetent Greek Justice as usual!
