Greece seeks to recoup €2.4 billion in unpaid energy bills
Greek media reported that within the consortium is included a company which specializes in debt collection management whose CEO is Orestis Tsakalotos, a relative of Greek Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos.
DEH on Monday said the penalty for debtors who delay payment will rise to 7.25 percent of their total arrears while a six-percent penalty will be levied on bills which go unpaid by state entities.
The budget for the proposal is €12 million ($13.8 million) and it is foreseen that the contractors’ remuneration will be set as a percentage of the debt collected. ■
