    [01] Defence lawyer - Imprisonment

    Nicosia, Feb 15 (CNA) - The Assize Court, which convened in Limassol, yesterday condemned defence lawyer Michalakis Kyprianou to five days imprisonment, after he was found guilty for contempt of court.

    Kyprianou had claimed the trial for the murder of Briton Graham Mills, in which he was the defence lawyer for one of the suspects, had gone off track because the three-judge panel had been exchanging "love-notes".

    Nicosia, Feb 15 (CNA) - Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou said today that the habit of Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash to stigmatise all opposing him was "antidemocratic and dangerous".
