President says anti-corruption measures to be announced by year's end

Anastasiades said the delay in the announcement of the new bundle of anti-corruption measures was due to efforts seeking to get comprehensive input by all stakeholders


The new anti-corruption measures will be announced to the public before the end of the year, President Nicos Anastasiades said Wednesday, noting that the delay is due to the government’s efforts to take into account the suggestions of all stakeholders.

Anastasiades said that while solid proposals on the table, the government will bring together the justice minister, the attorney-general, and all stakeholders in tackling corruption, “in order to prepare specific proposals that go beyond those we already have, in order to finally bring about an effective mechanism to deal with the phenomenon of corruption from the root.”

The Cyprus public has been awaiting a comprehensive bundle of anti-corruption measures since early November, when the President had initially said they would be announced.

Frustration rippled across the population after Al Jazeera published a series of damning revelations of corruption at the highest levels of government in relation to the island’s citizenship-for-investment program.
