Portugal’s Constitutional Court has ruled that some of the unpopular pay cuts in this year’s state budget are unlawful, denying the government about 1.4 billion euros, US dlrs 1.8 billion, of predicted revenue. The court’s decision Friday delivers a setback to the austerity strategy agreed between the government and foreign creditors who lent Portugal 78 billion euros, US dlrs 101.5 billion, in a bailout two years ago.
