Council of State rules that pay cuts on police and armed forces workers were unconstitutional, ordering that they be reimbursed in full

A 10pc pay cut across a broad sweep of public sector workers, which took effect in August 2012, was included in the terms of Greece’s second bail-out from the EU-IMF troika of lenders. Those affected included the armed forces, emergency service workers, university lecturers and judges.
