On the verge of a rescue package


AFTER drawn-out talks here in Nicosia the government and foreign lenders are on the verge of striking a deal for a state bailout, reports said last night.

Reuters cited EU sources saying the agreement was nearly done but would be completed only today when inspectors from the European Commission, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund – collectively known as the troika – are likely to give their approval.

Two EU officials told the news agency the Cypriot side had presented a final, detailed proposal including figures and that the troika would examine it on Friday.

Prison boss severs ties with Ombudswoman


THE prison administration has prohibited the Ombudswoman’s office from investigating a rape allegation made by a male prisoner, the Cyprus Mail learned yesterday, as a damning report on prison conditions became public.

It is also terminating all relations with the Ombudswoman’s office.

Central Prison deputy governor Giorgos Tryfonides categorically denied that the Ombudswoman’s office — which also has the role of the national mechanism for the prevention of torture — had been obstructed. 

He said he was terminating cooperation with ombudswoman Eliza Savvidou, because she did not take the prison administration’s views into consideration.

“There was no rape case, but nevertheless an investigation is taking place,” he said.

Brutal Wenger reflects on San Siro ‘disaster’

MANAGER Arsene Wenger faces one of the toughest challenges of his 15-year reign after Arsenal crashed to their worst ever defeat in European competition on Wednesday and now face an uphill task of salvaging some tangible success this season.

Their 4-0 thumping at AC Milan in their Champions League last 16 first leg was their heaviest loss since they first played in Europe in 1963 and British newspapers on Thursday were merciless in their condemnation of their performance.

Wenger – who is usually fiercely loyal to his players no matter how poorly they may have played – was uncharacteristically brutal, saying the display was “a disaster”.

A place on earth


THEO PANAYIDES meets a psychic although she is able to offer no insights for what to expect in 2012


I suspect it’s the contrast that shocks me. I’m sitting in a big house in a well-heeled suburb of Limassol, talking to 75-year-old Joan Bunyan. It’s normally a quiet street, but today we’re talking over the racket of the Public Works Department fixing the asphalt. They come fairly often, says Joan, but only do a small section each time, so it’s over quite quickly. The house is cosy. There are Christmas decorations on the walls. The tablecloth on the dining-room table has a black-and-white African design. Then suddenly we’re contacting the spirit of my dead grandfather.

Our View: Minister’s defiance not unreasonable given her treatment by aggressive MPs

DEPUTIES of the House commerce committee were given a bit of shock last Friday when they were informed that commerce and industry minister Praxoulla Antoniadou would not be attending a scheduled meeting. Antoniadou informed the committee chairman Lefteris Christoforou that she had no intention of returning to the commerce committee if deputies did not apologise ‘in writing’ for the rude and aggressive way in which they had treated her at the last meeting.

Historic qualification marred by violence

10:46 FOOTBALL fans smashed cars, attacked a rival team’s clubhouse and torched rubbish bins in Nicosia on Wednesday evening as they celebrated APOEL’s historical qualification in the last 16 of the Champions League.

Police said they arrested four youths aged between 17 and 25 in connection with the trouble.

The four were part of some 3,000 APOEL fans that filled the capital’s streets at around 9 pm, after their team’s away game against Zenit in Saint Petersburg, Russia.

The final score was 0-0.

During the celebrations, unknown individuals attacked the clubhouse of archrivals Omonia — smashing windows — and cars parked nearby

Peres: gas finds can promote peace

CYPRUS and Israel yesterday pledged that natural gas found in the eastern Mediterranean would be used to promote peace in the region, as the two countries further strengthened their relations with the signing of four bilateral agreements.

“We do not want to make an alliance based on military strength but cooperation based on goodwill,” said Israeli President Shimon Peres after talks with his Cypriot counterpart Demetris Christofias. 

Relations between the two countries have improved significantly of late, helped by the deteriorating relationship between Turkey and Israel, and the anticipation of large hydrocarbon deposits likely shared by Cyprus and Israel in the Eastern Mediterranean in their respective Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZ).
