Greek Minister requests power disconnection for 30K consumers with arrearsLatest "get tough" policy vis-a-vis so-called "strategic defaulters"

The relevant development and energy minister on Monday said state-run Public Power Corp. (PPC), the dominant but debt-laden electricity utility in Greece, has requested service disconnection for up to 30,000 consumers with outstanding arrears to the ATHEX-listed company, naftemporiki.gr reports.

PPC's request is towards the autonomous grid operator.

In qualifying the latest "get tough" policy vis-a-vis so-called "strategic defaulters", Minister Kostis Hatzidakis told a television current affairs program that possible "mistakes" will be immediately corrected, when asked if households in need will be included in the mass disconnections.
