Interior Minister: All Have a Duty to Preserve Cyprus’ Hard-Fought Reputation

We all have a duty to preserve Cyprus’ good name, Interior Minister Constantinos Petrides said on Thursday November 7, 2019 adding that it took a lot of effort to reinstate the country’s fame under adverse circumstances, the Cyprus News Agency reports.

Speaking about the Cyprus Investment Programme, the Minister said that there have been mistakes, he noted however that controls which are now in place make the programme “one of the strongest worldwide.” He pointed to efforts for economic recovery in the past, and said that the course of the economy is not something that can be taken for granted “nor is the programme of course”

The Minister was addressing the Annual General Meeting of the Cyprus Land and Building Developers Association, in Nicosia, delivering an address on behalf of the President of Cyprus. In off the cuff remarks, Petrides said that the economy is now stable, he said however that we should not forget previous efforts before reaching this point.

A few years ago Cyprus had a bad reputation due to shell companies and money laundering through offshore companies, as well as due to weak points in the country’s banking system that allowed for abuses and money laundering, he said.

It took a lot of effort to reinstate the country’s credibility, through the banking sector, public finances and with sounder business practices, Petrides added.

He said moreover that professionals with activity related to the programme also have a responsibility to follow best practices and respect the code of conduct. “We will be very strict about these practices too because we all have a responsibility, both the public and private sector” he concluded.

The Council of Ministers decided on Wednesday to initiate procedures to rescind citizenship of the Republic of Cyprus it had granted to 26 individuals under the passports-for-investment scheme of the Cyprus Investment Programme.
