    A battle of jobs versus the environment is raging in northern Greece, as one of the country's largest foreign investors threatens to pull out.

    Canadian mining group Eldorado Gold almost suspended operations last month, saying the government is not meeting contractual obligations, causing delays and costing it millions.

    The two are now in court, with the government claiming it is trying to protect the environment.
