Greece Proposes Plans to Tackle Tax Evasion and Corruption

category international | eu | news report author Thursday April 02, 2015 15:20author by Jubilee USA Network Report this post to the editors

Greece submitted a list of economic reforms to the European Union (EU) in an effort to secure emergency financing.

Greece submitted a list of economic reforms to the European Union (EU) in an effort to secure emergency financing. The reforms include proposals to raise revenue by curbing tax evasion and corruption. Eurozone leaders rejected a prior Greek reform plan over the weekend. Greek Interior Minister Nikos Voutsis told Germany's Spiegel news magazine that Greece may not make its €450 million payment to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) if it does not receive more financing by April 9. Government spokesperson Gabriel Sakellaridis denied that Greece would forgo IMF payments.

"This is a poker match between Greece, the IMF and the EU," said Eric LeCompte, Executive Director of the religious debt relief organization Jubilee USA Network. "The stakes are high with millions of ordinary people's lives on the table."

Greece's Syriza party vowed to end austerity measures and renegotiate the country's debt after winning national elections in January. The Greek government submitted a list of proposed reform measures in February to unlock a four-month extension to its current loan deal with the EU, IMF and European Central Bank. The EU rejected those proposals and instructed Greece to submit new reforms. Greece is also seeking debt relief and indicated it would pay for domestic services before paying its debt if forced to choose. Greece is the most heavily indebted country in Europe and the third most indebted in the world.

"This ongoing dispute is more evidence that we need a global bankruptcy process with clear rules," said LeCompte, an expert to United Nations finance working groups. "Otherwise we're just gambling with people's lives."​
