Government Spokesman’s statement on Briton’s case

The Republic of Cyprus, as a constitutional state, has constitutionally regulated institutions and a separation of powers, Government Spokesman Kyriacos Koushos said in a written statement on the 19-year-old’s case according to philenews.

In this context, he continues, the Government does not intervene in cases heard by the competent Courts of the Republic of Cyprus, nor does it comment on positions or allegations raised in cases pending before the Courts.

The Government has full confidence in the judiciary and the Courts of the Republic of Cyprus, which should be left alone to enforce the laws of the state and to administer justice.

The executive authority, in accordance with the provisions of the Constitution of the Republic of Cyprus, will make its decisions after the completion of the judicial process.
