De Jager Backs ‘Permanent Troika’ in Athens to Monitor Economy

Dutch Finance Minister Jan Kees de Jager said he supports a permanent presence of international monitors in Athens to oversee Greece’s implementation of austerity measures as part of a second rescue program.

“I am myself in favor of a permanent troika in Athens,” De Jager told reporters in Brussels today, referring to the European Commission, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund.
