Momentum grows for Cyprus deal

THE EUROZONE’S 17 finance ministers will meet in Brussels tomorrow after an EU leaders’ summit to discuss Cyprus’ financial bailout, officials said yesterday, signalling growing momentum for a deal.
The meeting, which follows a mission by the troika of international lenders to Cyprus, raised expectations that the eurozone was close to sealing a package of aid that the island asked for last June.
“Friday 5pm (1600 GMT) extra Eurogroup on Cyprus,” Dutch Finance Minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem, who chairs the meetings, said on his official Twitter feed.
“The expectation is that the Eurogroup will discuss the outlines of the aid programme,” he said separately in a letter to the Dutch parliament.

AG says drivers were pardoned due to initial mistake by police


THE ATTORNEY-general yesterday denied a critical report that President Demetris Christofias had pardoned two people who had committed traffic violations, suggesting that better due diligence should be carried out to avoid giving the wrong impression.

The denial concerns a report in daily Politis, which said yesterday that Christofias had pardoned two drivers who had been penalised by the courts for traffic violations.

One case concerned a man who was fined €250 and had two penalty points added to his licence and the other of a driver who had been fined €200, Politis said.

Iranian ships reach Syria, China warns of civil war

China’s main newspaper accused Western countries of stirring civil war in Syria and two Iranian warships docked at a Syrian naval base, underscoring rising international tensions over the near year-long crisis.

Despite pursuing a sustained military crackdown on the opposition in cities across the country, President Bashar al-Assad forged ahead with plans to hold a referendum at the end of the week.

Activists in the western city of Hama said troops, police and militias had set up dozens of roadblocks, isolating neighbourhoods from each other.

MPs want new charge on power bills suspended


FOR EVERY €100 of an electric bill, only about €70 accounts for the actual cost of electricity, the remaining €30 covering various fees imposed by the power utility, an opposition MP said yesterday.

Lefteris Christoforou, chairman of the House Commerce Committee, was commenting on the rising number of complaints by consumers over their high bills.

Surcharges levied after the Mari blast of last July (6.96 per cent), fees for carbon emissions and for renewable sources of energy, as well as other tariffs, account for as much as 30 per cent of any electrical bill, Christoforou said.

Increased drinking fuelled by cheap booze



TWO FORTHCOMING reports are set to highlight a burgeoning alcohol problem in Cyprus, which has driven up road deaths and is increasing rehab clinic admissions by up to 20 per cent.

Meanwhile, preliminary data from a European wide European School survey project on alcohol and other drugs (ESPAD) study which is due in May shows the number of school age students in Cyprus who regularly drank in 2011 has risen by around 10 per cent since 2007.
