Auditors from Portugal's international creditors will make an additional visit to the country in the coming weeks as it seeks to find new spending cuts after a court ruling rejected a number of austerity measures, an official said Monday.

Following the Constitutional Court's rejection of several budget measures on Friday the so-called troika of auditors from the EU, IMF and ECB "will make an additional visit to Portugal", Finance Minister Vitor Gaspar said in a statement.
