12:50 - 23 May 2023
Attorney General George Savvides has said that we must refrain from making too many statements on the issue regarding the US and UK sanctions imposed on Cypriot natural persons and entities, noting that we must preserve the credibility of our country abroad.
Savvides, who was invited by journalists on the sidelines of the PASYDY conference, in Nicosia, to say whether he received information in relation to the second sanctions package, pointed out that the issue of sanctions is "a very delicate issue" and said that "we should refrain from making too many statements on the matter."
Noting that this is not just a legal matter he said that his office is working and studying "both the information that we receive from the various countries and various other complaints that come from other agencies and do what needs to be done."
"Apart from the fact that these are serious matters which are being examined by the police, the credibility of our country abroad is also being judged and we must be particularly restrained," he concluded.
