State doctors ‘sabotage’ Health Ministry General Manager

All sides in the Health sector remain barricaded as yesterday the state physicians union PASYKI officially informed the Minister of Health that they have lifted confidence in the General Manager of the ministry, Christina Yiannaki, culminating in the conflict and the chaos that began after the death of ten-year-old Stavros and the arrest of two doctors.
