The Cyprus Papers Undercover | Al Jazeera Investigations

Al Jazeera’s Investigative Unit exposes how a convicted criminal might obtain a European passport in Cyprus – for the right price. Undercover reporters reveal a two-track citizenship by investment scheme, where “problematic” applicants pay more money. The investigation leads to the highest offices of the Cypriot state, where we are given the blueprint on how to bypass the rules.
When confronted with evidence, all involved denied wrongdoing. They claimed that they had suspicions of the undercover team, that they supported and made a report against the journalists to the Cyprus’ anti-money laundering unit.

    Very shameful for the Cypriot people. These guys definitely do not represent the people of the island. And this is just a sample of the corruption in the island led by all political parties….

    We give citizenship to billionaires who invest a load of cash in our island. We even check with the EU if the people are safe. This is actually smart! Bravo Cyprus!

    Exploiting gaps in the international legislation regarding money transfer/investing etc is the really prosperous job. I cannot see why a state official should not help these money come to his/her country. Cyprus is late on that thing, look to Malta, Ireland, Luxembourg, and almost all ex-British empire colonies.

    These people came into office promising they would do something about the Cyprus problem.
    Look at them now. I'm ashamed to be cypriot, I'm ashamed to breath the same air as they do.
