On Monday, the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) announced the disbursement of the 800 million euro sub-tranche for the repayment of State arrears. This amount is part of the tranche of 8.5 billion euros and is disbursed within the scope of the second review that was concluded in June. The amount of the 800 million euros was to be approved on condition that Greece would produce the necessary documents certifying that it has repaid previous arrears.
