New case files of investors passports to be investigated next month


A new wave of passport for citizenship cases will be delivered to authorities next month for investigation on possible criminal offences, according to Philenews sources.

An Investigative Committee member has told Philenews that most probably early next month, the Committee will be delivering its interim conclusions on at least ten cases of passport for citizenship investors who seem to raise issues which require police investigation.

Such conclusions will not just be referring to cases between 2007 and 2013, but also citizenships granted during the President Anastasiades administration.

All this will be made public for the purposes of transparency, but without names and addresses according to privacy legislation, as well to prevent the risk of cases not going to court due to loss of evidence.

As of Tuesday, deliberations of the Investigative Committee of the Passport for Citizenship Programme will open to the media. Journalists will witness the testimony of former finance minister Harris Georgiades.

He will be followed by Archbishop Chrysostomos and President Anastasiades in the near future.

Final conclusions are expected prior to the May parliamentary elections.

Meanwhile, police have recalled British real estate agent Tony K. in connection to the Al Jazeera revelations, in hope he will be convinced to divulge information on what happened during filming, as Al Jazeera journalists do not wish to get involved in legal processes.
