This is the first “negative” article I’ve seen about the banks re-opening. Most portrayed the people of Cyprus to be happy and understanding - with many deciding to leave their money in the bank “for the good of the country.” This was nothing but pure propaganda. Since everyone is limited to taking out just a few hundred euros a day, why stand in line at a bank? You just have to go to a bank machine.
BTW, how many people have read that the head of the Cyprus Central Bank and the former President were Communists? If you want to know why the country, you need to see who was running the show.
The ATM’s are empty.
