South Cyprus is shaken by the news of expulsion of Greek Cypriot political party AKEL MP Nikos Katsuridis from the party and removal of head of Greek Cypriot Central Bank Christalla Yorgacis and Assistant Attorney General Rikkos Erotokritu from their offices. Steps were taken in order to start a disciplinary proceeding by AKEL Central Committee against MP Nikos Katsuridis or his expulsion from the party after he is involved in the scandal of sale of a Turkish Cypriot property, known as Mormenekşe case, to Greek Cypriot Telecommunication Office through illegal ways. On the other hand, tension in Greek Cypriot Civil Department is increased. Greek Cypriot Attorney General Kostas Kliridis has filed an appeal in High Court for the removal of Assistant Attorney General Rikkos Erotokritu from his office for the reason of his inconvenient attitudes and his actions during the criminal investigation concerning the declaration of value –added taxes. Meanwhile, it was stated that Greek Cypriot Civil Department determined the legal infrastructure required to the removal of head of Greek Cypriot Central Bank Christalla Yorgacis from her office for the reason of the scandals in the bank. According to the news, Greek Cypriot Civil Department has determined legal infrastructure concerning the trial of Yorgacis as “conflict of interests”.
