Greece Won’t Dismiss Civil Servants, Spokesman Petalotis Says

Greece will refrain from firing civil servants in its search for spending cuts, said government spokesman George Petalotis.

“We’re not discussing sacking permanent employees,” said Petalotis, according to an e-mailed transcript of comments to reporters in Athens today. “In any case, there is the constitution, which, to put a stop to this alarmism that’s circulating, ensures the permanence of public servants.”
