AG confirms suspending prosecution on son’s driving violations


ATTORNEY-general (AG) Petros Clerides used his position to suspend prosecution for his son, Christodoulos Clerides, who was caught driving over the alcohol limit in a car that had not passed an MOT and for which he did not have up-to-date road tax.

But the AG has said he has done nothing wrong by helping out his son who was 32 at the time, because he would have done the same for someone else’s child.

Police filed a case against Christodoulos Clerides – a lawyer and the AG’s son – on June 11, 2011 and the AG informed Nicosia District Court in November 2011 that the Republic was suspending prosecution, Greek newspaper To Ethnos reported on Sunday.

'We've done little to bend Turkish intransigence'

TURKISH intransigence in the Cyprus problem cannot be used as an excuse for the current deadlock, opposition DISY leader and presidential candidate Nicos Anastasiades said yesterday.

Addressing the annual conference of the Central Councils of the World Federation for Oversees Cypriots (POMAK) and the International Coordinating Committee Justice for Cyprus (PSEKA), Anastasiades repeated his plea for a national strategy.

“Turkish intransigence cannot be used by any government or any political power as an excuse. It is a given that the lack of a solution is definitely due to Turkish intransigence, but what have we done to bend it?” asked Anastasiades.

He noted the lack of progress in the peace talks, which have reached a dead end.
