Info for Greek bank account holders ...

Info for Greek bank account holders:

Capital controls are to be relaxed a bit further as of Monday. It will then be possible to withdraw 840 euros in one go every 2 weeks and the amount that can be withdrawn from transfers from abroad is to be increased from 10% to 30%.

Thanks to 'Steve in Skiathos' and 'Skiathos Island News' for the update ...

Later update:

So, the "leftist" SYRIZA government is now proudly proclaiming, that it is loosening the capital controls that have been in place for over a year.

Instead of being limited to withdrawals of 420 euros per week per bank account, limits will be "loosened" to 840 euros per 15 day period, per bank account.

7 days x 2 = 14 days
420 x 2 = 840 euros

Of course the "oh so clever" and "non gullible" Greeks are sucking it up, while the global "left" still thinks Tsipras "tried the best he could." ...
