Manolis Glezos: "Germany Owes Greece 162 Billion Euros"


“Germany owes Greece 162 billion euros in total, without calculating the accumulated interest. This amount is precisely calculated, based on the data that the Bank of Greece gave to me,” said one of the most honored and longstanding members of the Major Coalition of the Radical Left, Manolis Glezos.
“The forced occupation loan was imposed by Germany. The Nazis imposed this loan on us, we did not ask for it” stated Manolis Glezos to Mega channel. “The thing is that Germany has already paid back two other forced occupation loans, one to Poland and one to former Yugoslavia, but not to Greece. The critical question here is why Germany behaved in this way towards Greece. I expressed these concerns to the German President in a clear and factual way.” The left-wing MP made special mention of the Paris Peace Conference that resulted in the Paris Peace Treaties, in which the 19-member Allied Commission determined the amount of the war reparations that Germany should pay to the countries that had been under Nazi occupation.  The amount that Germany had to pay to Greece was set at 7, 1 billion dollars at 1938 market values.”
Commenting on Gauck’s apology, Glezos said “The apology is accepted. However it is not enough. We need a practical apology.”
