A 70 year old Greek man died on the last day of September, while standing on the bank queue to pay the “barbaric” Enfia  tax, which was also accutely imposed by the government during the August (vacation) days, and was announced by a definite deadline for the Greek citizens, threatening them otherwise to let the bank system take the money straight from the Greeks’ accounts, or put in jail whoever was not able to pay .

The 70 year old man was  patiently waiting for 1.5 hours and more to pay the ENFIA property tax, as the government had ordered, when he suffered a what it seems a heart attack, while waiting on a long queue at the bank , and no one knows if this was his last savings to get the coming month through, but was, definitely his last money of his life .

The emergency ambulance was called and came quite on time, but it seems that the episode was serious and acute  enough, not to give him any chances to be saved . He was transferred to a nearby hospital but despite all efforts, the man passed away.

The incident occured at a branch of National Bank of Greece in Thessaloniki, Northern Greece, and triggered an outrage.

A prosecutor intervened and asked on investigation for the reasons that led to the man’s death. A heart attack can happen to everyone while walking, sitting, standing, eating, sleeping. But when a sudden death occurs during a long queue at the bank to pay the property tax then the incident takes other dimensions… of Political,  Social and criminal, may be, Responsibility.

On that nightmarish Tuesday, of September 30, the deadline for the payment of first installment of new property tax ENFIA was expiring, as the government had announced, and many thousands Greeks rushed to the banks to pay it , while many taxpayers had been waiting for the pension or salary to come first, at the end of September, actually the same day, with the deadline of their new imposed tax obligations.

The notifications for the property tax payments have been delayed after the Finance Ministry had to proceed to several modifications and correct calculation errors that had led to incredible high amounts even for collapsed houses or agricultural plots.

At the same time, this Tuesday it was the expire date for the payment of income tax.

Poverty-Pushes-Greek-Parents-to-Give-Up-Children The Metropolitan Social Clinic started an Unyielding and Uncompromising struggle vs. the Greek Ministry of Health trying to prove that Greeks are cannibalized by intention, by recording and bringing to light cases of people who have paid seriously by their health or even their lives the Greek austerity politics,  due to the prolonged crisis and the lack of access to health services which have harmed their health. By the occasion of a recent German activists’ movement which has brought the Greek austerity health harm to the Greeks’ lives to Hague ,for a wide range of health detriment that the political measures have caused to the Greek population, the Metropolitan Social Clinic, invites all citizens of the country who belong to such social  groups to contact the Social Clinic for registering all incidents and provide their cases to The Hague tribunal. “We collect data for these violations for more than one year now, since the operation the Health issues Observatory center has stared, and we systematically record all the developments in the field of health”.. as to stand next to the helpless Greeks who face their life scare due to politically addressed harsh and inhuman measures, who cut lives by cutting costs, underlines the recent announcement of the Metropolitan Center at Hellinikon, and asks all Greeks to address their problem on the Centers’ website ” Moreover, almost every day, we do continue fighting in many levels, as well as with the Ministry of Health and the public administrations of hospitals, so that our uninsured patients can receive the necessary medical care without paying any cost, being in most cases long-term, unemployed and completely destitute citizens. A few months ago, German activist Sarah Luzia Hassel-Reusing has filed a lawsuit to the International Criminal Court in Hague against anyone
