EU expert group for Greece set for overhaul after Athens' protest

April 14, 2015

A group of European Union experts helping Greece to improve administration and draw more European funding is set to be all but dismantled after the new leftist government refused to cooperate with them, officials have told Reuters.

Such a concession to Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras' government by the European Commission could dismay countries which have grown frustrated with Athens' push to abandon reforms as it rejects what many in Greece see as European interference.

The 'troika' of inspectors representing Greece's international backers has already been renamed following Athens' objections. The 'troika' is deeply unpopular in Greece due to the tough austerity measures it has overseen during the crisis.
