Second Cyprus politician quits in wake of passport scheme scandal

Published on October 15, 2020 by

Demetris Syllouris, the Cypriot parliament speaker, has announced he will resign after he was implicated in a scheme to sell passports to criminals through the country’s citizenship through investment programme.
Syllouris was filmed as part of Al Jazeera’s The Cyprus Papers Undercover, an investigation which revealed how criminals were able to obtain Cypriot passports, granting them access to the EU and its internal markets.

Al Jazeera’s David Harrison joins us live from Nicosia, Cyprus for the latest updates.
