Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras acknowledged Friday that his government had made covert contingency plans in case Greece was forced out of the euro, but rejected accusations that he had plotted a return to the drachma.Tsipras was forced to respond to the issue in parliament after former Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis this week revealed efforts to hack into citizens' tax codes to create a parallel payment system, prompting shock and outrage in Greece.Dressed in a colorful paisley pattern shirt, Varoufakis sat listening to the question time debate.Tsipras made his remarks as Greece began talks with the mission chiefs of the quartet of creditors – the European Commission, European Central Bank, IMF and the European bailout fund – to nail down a third bailout of up to 86 billion euros.
