Private investors demanding ECB participate in "haircut" on Greek loans

Amid the political wrangling over what to do about vacillating support for eurozone "emergency funds" and what the level of input from various countries should be (particularly Germany, which is balking at the huge sums being suggested) there is the coalescing demands of private investors who view the ECB's refusal to join in the haircut (which could be as high as 65% to 70% of holdings) as grossly unfair and a violation of prior agreements. Many investors are complaining that they took on the bonds while listening to the commitments of the ECB and other political leaders who pledged to see that default (and 70% haircuts!) never happened.
