The Greek Prime Minister’s decision to distribute 617 million euros among pensioners, while the second bailout review has yet to conclude, appears to have ‘surprised’ Brussels.

Sources from the European Commission also reported that it appears that there will be serious difficulties in the implementation of the recent Eurogroup decision.
