    [01] Stock Exchange - Three-day closure

    Nicosia, Dec 6 (CNA) -- The Cyprus Stock Exchange (CSE) is closed from today until Thursday to allow the introduction of a new system of transactions. The decision to suspend transactions was taken by the CSE Board last week.

    The new settlement system will render the CSE more efficient and flexible to deal with future problems even though it is not considered as the final solution, according to the Board chairman Dinos Papadopoulos.

    [03] Turkish occupied areas - Illegal settlers

    Nicosia, Dec 6 (CNA) -- The number of settlers from Turkey illegally brought to the Turkish-occupied areas of Cyprus has more than doubled that of the Turkish Cypriots, according to figures published in the Turkish Cypriot daily "Avrupa" that criticises the occupation regime for lack of a vision and strategy.

    The newspaper points out that even though the results of population censuses carried out in the occupied areas are never released, if one looks at the number of Turkish Cypriots who have emigrated as well as the large number of Turkish prisoners, owners of shops and employees "the situation is more than obvious."
