Labour ministry: No cuts to main pensions

The labour ministry rejected media reports of an imminent or retroactive cut in main pensions on Wednesday (10/08/2016), labelling them as a “new wave of misinformation.”

In its press release, the ministry described the reports as “grey propaganda which is published … in serious newspapers”, adding that the change concerns a 6 percent deduction which will be imposed on pensioners who receive two pensions and used to support health services.
