The cases of naturalization of foreign investors and entrepreneurs have doubled, for which the Research Committee suggests the removal of Cypriot citizenship. At the same time, the criminal, disciplinary and administrative responsibilities arising from the final report, which will be handed over to the Attorney General next Monday, are increasing.

According to the finding, the percentage of cases that were found to be outside the legal framework, reached 53% from 51.8% that was in the interim finding of the Research. As the chairman of the Commission, Myronas Nikolatos, stated to “F”, the cases for which a suggestion is made to remove the golden passports are also doubled. Specifically, out of 22 that were in the interim report, they now amount to 44 because some of the directors of companies that invested in Cyprus were naturalized outside the legal framework. The Citizenship Deprivation Committee will be informed for this purpose.


Naturalizations: Painful finding for the Government The intermediate conclusion for naturalizations burns for many The interim conclusion for naturalizations is delivered

Also, the 112 cases of high risk which were mentioned in the interim report, reached 212 after in the meantime another 100 were identified. They will be referred for investigation by the Police for criminal responsibilities.

Mr. Nikolatos spoke clearly about criminal, disciplinary and administrative responsibilities arising from the findings of a number of individuals, while lawyers, auditors, banks and providers will be referred to their disciplinary bodies for further action. He also revealed that in the final conclusion, a recommendation is made to MOKAS and the Police to investigate their disciplinary and criminal members in relation to the supervision of persons who were finally naturalized when they should not have been. The president of the Research also stresses that the Ministry and the co-responsible Ministries of Interior and Finance should have sought legal guidance from the Legal Service from 2007 onwards, which did not happen. “No clear answer was received why they did not do it,” said Mr. Nikolatos.
