    [02] HOUSE SPEAKER DOWNER

    House President and President of the Democratic Party Marios Garoyian has described as provocative and unacceptable the Secretary-Generals Special Representative to Cyprus Alexander Downers stance.

    In statements, Garoyian said he believes there is an issue with Downer which he will have to discuss with the President of the Republic as well as with political party leaders in order to convey the message that this situation cannot continue.

    Garoyian was invited to respond to press reports about Downers role that he has been allegedly using illicit practices with regard to his mission in Cyprus.

    He said that the role of UN representatives is very delicate and very important and should they should always remain within their mandate, however what we see is completely unacceptable, conveys the wrong messages and is misleading, he added.
