Head of the Constitutional Court HaÅim KÄ±lÄ±Ã§ said, âI have known our colleagues in the Supreme Court of Appeals [YargÄ±tay] for years. They have been conducting their duties successfully. They are equipped, informed and experienced â¦ It is a qualified and meticulous team, in good command of incidents.â
The Finance Ministry on Tuesday submitted to Parliament an amendment abolishing cuts to judges salaries and pensions that have been enforced since August 2012 as part of troika-imposed reforms.
The move came a day after a court ruled that retroactive cuts imposed on the pensions of judicial officials were unconstitutional.
Laid off cleaning staff from the Finance Ministry staged a protest Thursday outside the headquarters of Greek coalition leaders New Democracy on Syngrou Avenue in Athens.
Protesters, who had tied nooses around their necks in a symbolic gesture, shouted slogans against their dismissal and briefly blocked the entrance to the offices of the conservative party.
