  • [01] Cyprus Police mobilized on Madeleine McCann case

    Cyprus Police have been mobilized after receiving information that a young girl who lived in the southeastern resort of Ayia Napa in Cyprus looked like British girl Madeline McCann, who disappeared in 2007 while she was on holidays with her parents and twin siblings at the resort of Praia da Luz, in Portugal.

    Police Spokesman Andreas Angelides said on Saturday the owner of a holiday apartment complex told the police on February 7 that a British couple, living with their three children there, abandoned the premises after stealing home appliances.

    He added that on February 20 Police Divisional Headquarters of Famagusta received information "that one of the three children looked like Madeleine McCann."

    [02] Foreign Minister to visit Greece soon

    Foreign Affairs Minister Ioannis Kassoulides will visit Athens within the next few days, at the invitation of his Greek counterpart Dimitris Avramopoulos.

    Kassoulides held a meeting on Friday with Ambassador of Greece to Cyprus, Vasilis Papaioannou. An official press release said that the Minister assured the Ambassador of Greece that Cyprus looks forward to maintaining the excellent relations between Greece and Cyprus and to further deepening bilateral cooperation.

    On his part, Papaioannou expressed Greece's full support to Cyprus' efforts to achieve the objectives of its foreign policy and wished the new Minister every success in his new position.

    [03] FinMin to propose new formula to Eurogroup on money laundering evaluation

    New Finance Minister Michalis Sarris will propose a new formula to his Eurozone counterparts in Brussels concerning the assessment of Cyprus' legal framework against money laundering. Sarris travelled to Brussels Saturday to attend Monday's Eurogroup meeting.

    On Sunday, the newly-appointed Finance Minister will have a series of separate meetings at the Belgian capital, with his German counterpart Wolfgang Schäuble and high-ranking European Commission and Eurozone officials.

    In statements to the Cyprus News Agency, Sarris said he will propose the conduct of an evaluation under the Central Bank of Cyprus, with the involvement of Moneyval, the Council of Europe Committee of Experts on the Evaluation of Anti-Money Laundering Measures and the Financing of Terrorism. The process will be assisted by private experts, if necessary, he added.
