Portugal -Court rejects austerity measures -April 05, 2013

The Constitutional Court ruled that planned cuts in salaries to state workers and payments to pensioners were in breach of the constitution. It rejected four austerity measures, including planned cuts in public sector pay and state pensions, after scrutinising articles of the 2013 budget. According to the court it was ‘unfair’ to single public sector workers out. Cuts in sickness and unemployment benefits were also rejected.
