The parliamentary speaker who is seen in the undercover video says he will abstain from duties until an investigation is completed.
Aljazeera exposed senior politicians who took part in a scheme to help a criminal buy a Cypriot passport.

    Political bribery, and then obviously blackmail, explains Putin’s hold over them, as if it wasn’t obvious before.

    It's time the government helps the Cypriots that paid into the System for years and are now suffering due to banks that was giving free money without making sure they have enough security if the clients are unable to pay back the loans.

    Cypriots are very happy to see the video of Al Jazeera. Syllouris Demetres and many officials at all levels where taking advantage of their position not only for the investment program The legislation system judges lawyers police and government officials are working together in an deep state corruption.

    In Christianity there is a saying “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone'.” Most of the governments are worse than the Cypriot one but ofc you have to do what you are paid for… to serve the interests of the countries that want to harm Cyprus!
