'Greek citizens try to dodge tax on every purchase'

Eurozone ministers are due to meet on Monday to finalise the conditions of a second bailout for Greece.

Athens needs the 130bn euros (£110bn; $170bn) in order to avoid bankruptcy in mid-March, when a huge repayment on its governmental debt must be made.

Over the weekend, Greek Prime Minister Lucas Papademos said they had agreed the final measures of cuts to the minimum wage and state pensions.

However, the country is in economic free fall and its people are suffering from effects of austerity.
