Greek pharmacists threaten to strike over state’s debt

Pharmacists warned on Thursday that they may go on strike next month because they are still owed 75 million euros by the state, a debt that allegedly dates back to 2010.

The head of the Panhellenic Pharmacists’ Association, Kyriakos Theodosiadis, called on the government to take legislative action to ensure the 2010 debt and the money owed for medicines this year are settled soon.
