The new bailout deal for Greece means shutdown of ERT … again?
ATHENS, GREECE – The European Summit of the Eurozone Leaders last Sunday concluded on Monday morning with a series of prerequisites for the Greek government to get a new bailout deal on its debt. Among the terms and rules of this deal is for the government of Greece to suspend specific laws issued as of February 20th.
Among them is the law for the re-institution of the Hellenic Radio Television (aka ERT). The broadcaster which reopened after the shocking shut down within 8 hours on June 11th, 2013, re opened (officially) in June 2015 (while legally was re-instituted as of April 2015).
The idea and only that ERT might shut down again will create a series of fuzz in the Greek society not to mention in the international prestige of Greece which is extremely low at the moment.
