I told you before: former transport minister Michalis Liapis, who claimed to be a “poor pensioner affected by the economic crisis” and therefore he counterfeit the license plates of his luxury vehicle, is a source of inspiration.
Municipality workers soon to be laid off entered the office of deputy interior minister this morning and chanted Christmas Carols. Their donations box had a noble cause: to get money and assist the poor ex minister who is enjoying his Christmas vacation in exotic Kuala Lumpur.
It is not clear if and how much money they managed to collect and whether Michalis Liapis will be obliged to stay in Malaysia – unless he booked a return ticket.
In the context of “mobility scheme” thousands of municipality workers will be send home with 70% of their salary and get fired after a period of 8 months. Austerity wins over success story.
