    [01] Defence lawyer set free

    Nicosia, Feb 16 (CNA) - A lawyer, who was jailed for five days on Wednesday by the Assize Court for contempt of court, was set free this morning so that he does not stay in prison until Monday.

    The Cyprus Bar Association has strongly opposed the Assize Court decision against lawyer Michalakis Kyprianou and is demanding a change in the law so that in such cases contempt of court is not tried by the same court in which the incident occured.

    During his three-day stay, beginning February 21, the Lord Mayor will call on President Glafcos Clerides and will meet the Ministers of Finance, Commerce and Foreign Affairs, the Cyprus chief negotiator in the European Union accession talks, the Central Bank Governor and the chairman of the Cyprus Stock Exchange.

    [04] Former EU Commissioner - Lecture

    Nicosia, Feb 16 (CNA) Former EU Commissioner on enlargement and external relations Hans Van den Broek said here last night that the EU wants to proceed with the whole process of bringing Turkey closer to the Union but on the other hand it will make no concessions concerning the conditions and its principles a candidate country has to abide by in order to join the Union.

    Speaking at a lecture organised by the Institute for Eurodemocracy, Van den Broek stressed in case that there will be no solution to the Cyprus problem when negotiations are completed and the time of accession comes, the Helsinki EU Summit decision would be applied. He said the EU doesn't want "two Cypriot states".
