Starting next month, the wages of the “independent” courts officials will increase by a whopping 25%. No other sector has gotten such a raise, including those suffering steep and unconstitutional pay cuts like the uniformed, teachers, and doctors.
The increases in salaries of the court, whose members already have salaries ranging from 2500-8000 Euros a month, means that the state budget will be burdened by 70 million.
The timing is not surprising. The trial of Golden Dawn’s leadership will be held at the start of November, so the system is rushing to fill some pockets to get their desired result.
