Campaigners criticise IMF cave in over Greek debt

Commenting on the Eurogroup and IMF staff agreement in Brussels early on Wednesday morning, Sarah-Jayne Clifton, Director of the Jubilee Debt Campaign said:

“IMF staff are proposing to lend more money to Greece without the upfront and unconditional debt relief they called for. This is a major climb down, which once again breaks the IMF’s own rules not to lend when they know a debt cannot be paid.

“Eurozone finance ministers cannot keep repeating this pattern of sticking plaster measures followed by near defaults and all night crisis meetings for the next 40 years. Only significant cancellation of Greece’s debt now, including payments coming due now such as to the IMF and ECB, will help tackle the humanitarian crisis in the country and restore the lack of confidence which is holding back Greece and the wider European economy.”
