Greek court postpones appeal over sacked cleaners again

The Supreme Court on Tuesday postponed for a second time the hearing of an appeal by the Finance Ministry with regard to a First Instance Court ruling instructing the ministry to rehire a group of 393 cleaners placed in a civil service mobility scheme in 2013.

The decision to postpone the hearing came following a request by the legal teams on both sides.

The sacked cleaners, who have been protesting outside the ministry for 595 days, met late on Tuesday to decide whether to continue their protect action.

Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis has said that all staff will be rehired.
