National Bank pensioners…

National Bank pensioners staged a rally yesterday in central Athens protesting the delay in the payment of some 12,000 supplementary pensions. The pensioners’ accounts should have been credited from the start of this week. This is the first such delay for a very long time but the problem should be resolved early next week, according to sources. National Bank employees staged a three-hour stoppage yesterday morning in solidarity with the pensioners.
