Interior Minister accused of not paying his health fund contributions

The health fund for journalists (EDOEAP) said on Thursday that Interior Minister Argyris Dinopoulos, a former reporter, had not paid any contributions between 2009 and 2013 but continued to make use of the fund’s services.

The EDOEAP board said that Dinopoulos asked in 2013 for his arrears to be subject to the same payment plan offered to unemployed journalists.

Dinopoulos denies that this is the case and says that the fund has failed to respond to his request to settle his debts.
