first_imgThe foreign ministers of Cyprus, Greece and Egypt have expressed support to Nicosia’s efforts for a Cyprus settlement “without outdated security arrangements”.During a meeting in New York on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly the minister also agreed that the presence of the peacekeeping mission on the island is indispensable.In a Joint Communique issued after the meeting, Ioannis Kasoulides, Nikos Kotzias, and Sameh Shoukry reaffirmed, among others, their “unwavering support to the efforts of the Government of the Republic of Cyprus for a comprehensive settlement of the Cyprus problem that will reunify Cyprus in a viable, functional state in line with UNSC resolutions and international law, without outdated security arrangements which allow for the right of foreign military intervention and without foreign troops”.They also stressed that the United Nations remains the forum through which a settlement can be achieved and that UNFICYP’s presence is indispensable, as long as Cyprus remains under illegal Turkish military occupation.“This trilateral consultation mechanism, which was launched in New York five years ago, reaffirms the mutual commitment of the three states to cooperate and work towards promoting security and stability in the Eastern Mediterranean region and facilitates cooperation in this respect” the communique said.The Ministers also reviewed the progress on the implementation of projects in priority areas agreed during previous trilateral summits and welcomed ongoing cooperation in the fields of energy, agriculture, maritime transport, tourism, trade, and investment.Kasoulides, Kotzias, and Shoukry also pledged to step up cooperation in these fields, in view of the upcoming trilateral summit that will take place in Nicosia, on November 21, 2017.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoOur View: Argaka mukhtar should not act as if he owns the beachUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Minister urges House to pass matchfixing billMinister urges House to pass matchfixing bill

first_imgA bill aimed at stamping out match fixing will be put to the vote in two weeks, chairman of the House education committee said on Wednesday.Justice Minister Ionas Nicolaou said the bill was discussed for the last time on Wednesday, urging parliament to approve the bill so that the problem could be tackled.Cypriot football is plagued by match-fixing, described as the worst in Europe. Footballing authorities have received scores of notifications about suspicious betting, which suggests match-fixing, but no one has been brought to book to date.In May, Nicolaou had expressed hope that the bill would have been approved by parliament before its summer recess so it could come into effect by the start of the new season.The bill includes provisions for investigating such offences while others are designed to work pre-emptively.The bill affords courts the authority to seize any profits collected by the offender and creates a bribery offence concerning officials and athletes.Those found guilty face up to seven years in jail and or a €100,000 fine.It will ban betting by athletes, club officials, referees and members of the football association. Club officials would be banned from representing athletes.The bill also includes provisions for protecting athletes who blow the whistle and banning termination of their contract.The minister said a five-member committee will be created to investigate and collect information that will be passed on to the attorney-general who will decide whether there was a case. The investigation will be carried out by the police.“The committee will collect data, it won’t carry out a criminal investigation,” he said.Last year the CFA was forced by European football governing body Uefa to put strict measures in place after repeated notifications concerning suspicious betting activity.The association had approved modifications to the disciplinary code regarding matches, with tough fines and long prison sentences for those found throwing or fixing matches.Despite these measures, the CFA continued to receive notices indicating that match fixing continued to thrive.In December last year, the CFA fined two top-flight teams €50,000 each after they were implicated in suspicious betting activity by Uefa, while earlier in the month, it had notified the island’s authorities of suspicious betting activity relating to another top-flight fixture.  You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoYahoo SearchThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.

Akinci calls for focus on propertyAkinci calls for focus on property

first_imgTurkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci said on Thursday it was up to the new ‘government’ to create funds and speed up the application process for the Immovable Property Commission (IPC).“One of the first tasks of the new government should be the commission. Funds need to be found and the process sped up. It should not take years, as it does now,” Akinci said at a conference on the Cyprus problem at the Near East University in Nicosia.Parliamentary elections will be held in the north on January 7.Akinci was alluding to Tuesday’s European Court of Human Rights’ decision which unanimously upheld a complaint filed by a Greek Cypriot refugee against Turkey over the IPC’s lack of effectiveness.The IPC was set up in 2005 to deal with Greek Cypriot claims for compensation for their occupied properties.“Today, you might say the decision (ECHR) is not so severe, but tomorrow, we could face much worse results,” Akinci said.On the stalled Cyprus negotiations, the Turkish Cypriot leader said there could be some movement following the presidential elections in the south, adding that “it is neither right to paint a completely bleak picture nor to say 2018 will be the year of a solution”.Akinci also said that ‘open-ended, continuous negotiations are over’ and that he is ‘not ready to be part of such a process’.You May LikeLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.

Cyprus mulls next steps after former TMT member talks about killing GreekCyprus mulls next steps after former TMT member talks about killing Greek

first_imgBy Evie AndreouThe Republic of Cyprus is asking from Turkey the effective investigation of all war crimes, Commissioner for Humanitarian Affairs Photis Photiou said on Tuesday following the ‘confession’ of a Turkish Cypriot to what the commissioner called “barbaric crimes”.Photiou was speaking after a meeting on the next steps following the testimony last week of an elderly Turkish Cypriot man, a veteran of Turkish Cypriot TMT guerrilla group, on the execution of Greek Cypriot civilian war prisoners during the 1974 Turkish invasion.Officials from the legal services, representatives of the foreign ministry, the police, and the Committee on Missing Persons were among those who participated in the meeting.It had followed calls for the prosecution of 84-year-old Turgut Yenagrali, who said in a TV interview that he had killed Greek Cypriot civilian war prisoners. The 84-year-old, had also boasted that he had accompanied the Turkish army to the tip of Karpasia, and that when he saw many Greek Cypriot prisoners, his intention was to kill them all.What was talked about in the testimony, Fotiou said were “barbaric, horrible crimes against innocent people, in many cases women and children, elderly people but also prisoners and this a truly barbarous confession”.If what was said truly took place, he said, they constituted war crimes. “At this stage however, we will stop here and if in the future there is anything else, we will announce it,” he said.Undersecretary to the President, Vasilis Palmas, had said last week that the government did not intend to leave unanswered the provocative testimony of Yenagrali whose statements he described as “provocative, cynical and unacceptable”.Palmas also said that the government would take the issue to international organisations and consult the attorney-general as to whether the statements were an admission of war crimes.Following the meeting, Photiou said that there was an in-depth exchange of views and suggestions as to the next steps.“We have many such cases and testimonies and they are always being assessed to see how they could assist in the location of our missing persons,” Photiou said. “The clear political position of the Republic of Cyprus is that in this case, as in other cases, we are asking effective investigation of these crimes and for all the information from Turkey itself. We could expand the investigation also in the Republic of Cyprus,” he said.If in the future more information arises relating to the case, Photiou said he did not rule out seeking the help of Europol. “But for now, we will stop here, because such issues are very sensitive and we ought to be cautious,” he said.You May LikeHoochHe’s the best point guard of all timeHoochUndoList Nebula8 Cutest Exotic Dog BreedsList NebulaUndoIntertechAngular Tutorial: Getting started with the Angular CLIIntertechUndo Protest outside the House over foreclosures lawUndoLED-lighting the way by 2020UndoBritain preparing for a no-deal BrexitUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Doctors urge government to focus on serious understaffing at hospitals UpdatedDoctors urge government to focus on serious understaffing at hospitals Updated

first_imgInstead of using state budgets to refer patients to the private sector, the health ministry should deal with the serious understaffing problem at public hospitals, the head of the state doctors’ union (PASYKI) said on Wednesday.Commenting on a series of tweets posted by Health Minister Giorgos Pamboridis on Tuesday warning PASYKI that unless state hospitals became autonomous, the public health sector would die, union head Soteris Koumas said that before autonomy is implemented, state hospitals must be reorganised.Dates for the implementation of hospital autonomy, which is a basic pre-requisite for the implementation of the National Health Scheme (NHS), have been constantly delayed following disagreements over provisions.The goal is for state hospitals to achieve legal, administrative and financial independence but the ministry and unions of health professionals disagree over labour issues in reaching that goal.“We were the first to propose administrative and financial autonomy of state hospitals, but with supervision from the health ministry,” Koumas told the Cyprus Mail.He also said that despite Pamboridis’ statements when he became minister that he would support state hospitals, as they were the backbone of the health system, he said that they are still waiting.”We believe that corrective moves need to be made. State hospitals are understaffed,” he said.The Limassol state hospital’s ophthalmology department and Paphos’ state hospital gynaecology department only operate with one doctor each, Koumas said. He added that in both cases, from the initial four doctors staffing each of the two departments, only two remained and one of them is sick, thus these departments now operate with one doctor each.“On the one hand they tell us there is no budget to hire doctors, on the other hand there is no interest on behalf of doctors to work in the state sector,” he said.He added that no doctor after studying for 12 years chooses to work in the public sector because the pay is lower and working conditions inferior compared to the private sector.State hospitals need to be boosted with immediate measures, Koumas said. He added that other hospital departments are losing medical staff as well.Commenting on government statements that a study indicated there is a surplus of nurses and doctors, he said “Why are then patient waiting lists rapidly increasing?”.PASYKI announced that they would announce later in the month whether they would proceed with measures.Pamporidis later in the day said he was “surprised to watch PASYKI attempting to conduct a dialogue on the problems of public hospitals through the press”.“PASYKI has not asked to meet me to ask me these questions,” Pamboridis said. He added that he has made appeals to the leadership of PASYKI many times and that he explained to them that “none of the long standing problems of public hospitals can be resolved within the inadequate and inflexible framework of the public sector”.He also said he invited them to engage in sincere dialogue to establish an independent autonomous health organisation to be in charge of public hospitals and primary care of the state insured.“Unfortunately, PASYKI rejected the establishment of this agency and insists that our hospitals remain under government control, ignoring that this is precisely the source of most problems experienced by patients but also the state health professionals themselves”.You May LikeYahoo SearchThe Early Signs Of Type 2 Diabetes.

Capital controls eased furtherCapital controls eased further

first_imgThe finance ministry announced on Friday it was abolishing restrictions on fixed term bank deposits, introduced last year along with other capital controls to prevent a bank run.The ministry also said it was increasing the current limit for monthly money transfers per person within the Republic, regardless of purpose, from €15,000 to €20,000.The same applies to companies, which can now transfer €100,000 per month instead of €75,000.Cyprus introduced capital controls last March to prevent a run on banks after a bailout shut down a major lender, and imposed losses on large deposits in a second.It was conditional for €10 billion in aid from the EU and the International Monetary Fund.Based on the plan for a gradual relaxation on transactions, domestic controls will be fully eased first, before transactions involving money transfers abroad are scrapped.There has been an incremental easing of restrictions, but cash withdrawals are still limited to €300 per day and cashing of cheques is not allowed.The ministry said on Friday that according to the roadmap, which was published in August 2013, all milestones of the second stage have been met — disbursement of funds under the macroeconomic adjustment program for the recapitalisation of co-ops, submission of the co-ops restructuring plan to the European Commission, recapitalisation of Hellenic Bank, approval of Bank of Cyprus’ restructuring plan — therefore it is possible proceed with further easing of the restrictions.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoSenior Living | Search AdsCheap Senior Apartments in Rowland Heights Are Turning HeadsSenior Living | Search AdsUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
