The Greek Deputy Transport Minister, Michalis Papadopoulos, accused in an interview on Athens 984 radio, on Tuesday, accused the troika of adapting its demands to the Greek government in order to accommodate the needs of private groups with which it comes in contact with.

“The troika has certain obsessions that are groundless and are part of the way of thinking created by its technical teams,” he said, to add that “they are like a corner shop, where everyone who passes leaves something and then the troika picks up on it and says: ‘Ah, yes! You have to do this as well’”.

“There are institutional bodies, greek and foreign, who pass by the troika and say: ‘do this as well’”, Papadopoulos stated when asked whether he thought the troika serves private interests, to conclude that “the troika has adopted a way of thinking that involves them serving particular interests.”
