Report urges Greece sue Germany over WWII reparations
A Greek parliamentary report will recommend Germany be sued for 269 billion euros ($300.33 billion) in WWII reparations if diplomatic efforts to get paid fail. The intra-party committee was up to look into the claims and finished its work on July 27 and due to file its report in early September, Kathimerini said.
According to German magazine Der Spiegel, the 77-page report recommends that Greece employs diplomatic means to persuade Germany but doesn’t rule out legal action if that fails.
Prime Minister and Radical Left SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras has continued to press Greece’s case although Germany has disregarded previous requests from earlier governments.
