According to the Greek press, the financial crisis in Greece is starting to result in a widespread infrastructure collapse. As noted before, hospital staff bills are often unpaid and employees have been ordered to return money they’ve already been sent (in essence, receiving a negative salary).
And now, several prisons have been left at the mercy of local charity to supply prisoners with food to prevent them from starving.
The latest example is the prison in Corinth where after the supply stoppage from the nearby military camp, the prisoners are at the mercy of God because, as reported by prison staff, not even one grain of rice has been left in their warehouses. When a few days earlier the commander of the camp announced to the prison management the transportation stoppage, citing lack of food supplies even for the soldiers, he shut down the last source of supply for 84 prisoners. The response of some Corinth citizens was immediate as they took it upon themselves to support the prisoners, since all protests to the Justice ministry were fruitless.
