While the police investigations on the naturalizations and the work of the Investigative Committee on the matter are in progress, in the aftermath of Al Jazeera's revelations, the lawyer Andreas Pittatzis revealed in a post on Facebook that he had recorded his conversations with the so-called investors. . He claims that what is recorded in the documentary is “cut” and is missing part of their conversations, which he claims was crucial. He also notes that “I kept my mouth shut for three months. I let the Al Jazeera crows eat the last piece of flesh above me and my soul. I was patient… “.
In a post on his personal Facebook account, Andreas Pittatzis states caustically: “you behaved dishonestly. You did not 'play' the truth. You weighed the audience. This new Cyprus. Of the Colosseum. The one who suffocated from corruption and thirsts for blood. They sent me messages to die, to get cancer, to disappear and other cosmetic adjectives. Your fake edited shots end here! Because you were not the only ones who recorded … » Listen to the audio of Andreas Pittatzis:
He also notes that “I kept my mouth shut for three months. I let the Al Jazeera crows eat the last piece of flesh above me and my soul. I was patient… I was killed, humiliated, I cried, I was betrayed, I was deported, I was humiliated, I was marginalized, I was investigated, I was beaten. I was patient… A friend wrote in an article about me, that “in his grave he will write 25 years honest and then a lawyer”. I was patient… No friend … in my grave he will write “ἢ τὰν ἢ ἐπὶ τᾶς” ».
The post on Facebook:
Gentlemen of Al Jazeera, the lawyer continues, “when you played the quote for the name change, why didn't you 'play' what I REALLY told you? Why did you edit and with a fake movie you went to kill a man who did not blame you? But how could you, the Turkophiles, the giants, calculate that this lawyer from a small town in small Cyprus suspected you … and you were not the only one recording. With the blood still dripping, I get up and challenge you. As strong as you are. Those Emirates and billions that you have behind you “.
He adds saying “THIS IS CYPRUS”. The attack that received the “Oscar” of corruption. But was it true? You presented that allegedly I would change the name of the specific illegal person and THEN I would issue him a Cypriot Passport. You did not play what you asked me in GENERAL about the process and NOT ESPECIALLY about the so-called illegal… You did not play what I really told you. You assembled them and served a fake dish “.
He also clarifies that the “KYC” that you will hear in the recording, means: Know Your Client (KYC). They are the checks made according to Law 188 (I) / 2007 to determine that the money of a transaction comes from legal activities. Hundreds of pages of documents. I have shown you, the masters of Al Jazeera, the list of documents required. That before any investment / application is made, the research must be done according to the law. Why didn't you say that? Why didn't you show it too? I kicked you out of my office when you did not give the details, why did not you play it? You came back and assured me that you would send me the details to check what really and IF your customer was really experiencing something. Why didn't you play it? Why didn't you say that on 10/26/2019 at 10:20 p.m. I told you clearly that your client could NOT receive a Cyprus Passport “.
In conclusion, he provokes, as he states, “gentlemen of Al Jazeera, to refute the first (of the many) recordings. I CAUSE you to say that the following are not words I told you on 25/10/2019 at 03:10 in the afternoon. I CHALLENGE you to explain to us why you hid them. I CAUSE you to cover ALL the expenses to send your real recordings, not the edited and fake shots you played. This IS Cyprus Al Jazeera. And I am not afraid of you. I summon you to the Court of Public Opinion and I dare you to respond. The righteous are not lost in the trials of time “.
