London (ANI): Greek singer Nana Mouskouri is offering the country
her pension she gets as a former member of the European parliament
in a bid to tackle its massive debt. Mouskouri, who recorded 1,500
songs during a career spanning half a century, served as a member
of the European parliament for five years in the 1990s.
And she draws a pension of around 14,700 pounds from Brussels
each year. The diva said that she would donate her pension "until
the country emerges from the economic crisis." Mouskouri told the
Eleftherotypia daily newspaper that she was upset by the way Greece
had been portrayed around the world. "I do not want Greece to be
treated like a cancer," the Telegraph quoted her as saying.
