Small bondholders demand meeting with gov’t officials

Greek small bondholders who suffered losses from the country’s debt restructuring in March staged a protest on Friday outside the offices of conservative New Democracy which leads the government’s tripartite coalition.

The protesters, who chanted «Thieves, we want our money back,» demanded a meeting with the secretary of the conservative party’s political committee, Manolis Kefaloyiannis. Shortly after noon, dozens of protesters entered ND’s headquarters.

Bondholders have been insisting that the government offer relief on individual bondholdings up to 100,000 euros, similar to the state guarantee that covers bank deposits.
