A worker cleans paint thrown by anti-austerity protesters at the facade of the Bank of Greece in central Athens in this March 6, 2012 file photo. The governor of the Bank of Greece was given a severance payment of 3.4 million euros when he left his former employer, a major bank that he now regulates, documents seen by Reuters show. George Provopoulos was awarded the sum when he stepped down as vice-chairman of Piraeus Bank to become governor of Greece's central bank and a member of the board of the European Central Bank in 2008.
