  • [01] Charges filed over alleged plot to assassinate Attorney General

    Seven charges were filed Monday at the District Court against three men who were arrested by the Police over an alleged plot to assassinate the Attorney General of the Republic Petros Clerides.

    One of the charges concern murder conspiracy. The three men are inmate Andreas Onoufriou, Yiannakis Georgiou and Michalis Michael, a former army officer.

    The three suspects were arrested on October 28th. According to the Police, they had allegedly been planning to assassinate Clerides somewhere on the route from his office to his home using a Light Anti-tank Weapon or LAW, which police said was of Turkish origin.

    [02] Polish athlete auctioned medal to save a child's life, speaks to CNA

    Olympic windsurfer, winner of bronze medal in the London 2012 Olympics, Zofia Klepacka visited Cyprus recently and was honored by the Cyprus Tourist Organization for her altruism and for her hard work in promoting the island abroad.

    Klepacka, who auctioned her bronze medal in order to help her 5-year-old girl Zuzia, who suffers from cystic fibrosis, is no stranger to Cyprus. The 26-year old Polish, who is married to the Argentinean competitive sailor Lucio Noceti, comes to the island at least three times per year for training purposes.

    CNA met Klepacka recently and the 26-year-old Klepacka shared her ambitions and dreams and told us how she decided to auction her bronze medal. Little Zuzia's mother was also in Cyprus and told CNA that no words can describe her feelings towards Klepacka. With teary eyes she said that what Klepacka has done for her daughter is the greatest gift ever.
