THE European Central Bank (ECB) has made an eye-popping profit of £7.2billion from the Greek debt crisis, it has been revealed.

Leo Hoffman-Axthelm at Transparency International said: “The ECB expects repayments on its Greek bonds with one hand while approving Greece’s reform progress with the other.
“The Bank is literally sitting at all sides of the table.”
