  • [01] Marseille fans arrested for theft from duty free shop

    Eleven Olympique de Marseille fans, who had come to Cyprus for a Europa League match against AEL, were arrested on Thursday and remanded in custody for theft.

    The suspects allegedly stole perfume and tobacco products, worth €2,186 from a duty free shop at Larnaca Airport.

    According to a Police spokesman, a security guard saw one of the suspects stealing perfume so he approached him and asked him to pay for it, which the fan did and was then allowed to leave. After the suspects had left the shop, a security guard found, through the closed circuit TV system, that other members of the group had stolen perfume and cigarettes.

    [02] Reding satisfied with progress of Cyprus EU Presidency on justice issues

    Vice President of the European Commission Viviane Reding has expressed her satisfaction for the progress achieved during the Cyprus EU Presidency in the field of justice.

    Speaking at a press conference with Minister of Justice and Public Order Loukas Louka, who chaired the EU Justice and Home Affairs Council in Brussels, Reding said that "Europe has well advanced in the interest of its citizens and its business".

    She also expressed her satisfaction for the debate at the Council on data protection.

    [03] Cyprus Ambassador participates in panel discussion on UN and the EU

    Cyprus' Permanent Representative to the UN, Ambassador Nicolas Emiliou, has presented the Republic's experience as president of the Council of the EU and the challenges small states are faced with.

    Emiliou has participated in a panel discussion organized by the School of International and Public Affairs of the Columbia University of NY on the UN and the role of regional organizations, which focused on the case of the EU.

    The participants discussed the role of the EU as a united entity in the UN and its role as regards the international current affairs.

    [04] AEL Limassol beats Marsseille 3-0 in Europa League

    AEL Limassol FC ended their UEFA Europa League campaign on a positive note, registering their first win in Group C against an under-strength Olympique de Marseille lineup.

    With both teams already eliminated, AEL beat Marseille 3-0 at the GSP Stadium.

    According to the official site of UEFA, Orlando Sá`s towering header just before half-time gave the hosts the lead at the GSP Stadium, before late strikes from Edmar and Chris Dickson put the result beyond doubt. It was a dominant performance from Jorge Paulo Costa Almeida`s side, who will be glad to have banished memories of the 5-1 defeat they suffered at the hands of Marseille on matchday two.

    [05] Omirou assures Dačić of Cyprus` support to Serbia

    President of the House of Representatives Yiannakis Omirou has assured Serbian Prime Minister Ivica Dačić of Cyprus` support to Serbia regarding Kosovo, as well as the country`s EU accession course.

    Dačić expressed his country's gratitude for Cyprus` support, pointed out that Cyprus is considered Serbia`s closest friend within the EU, and assured Omirou that Serbia was proceeding steadily and progressively towards the necessary reforms in order to conclude its EU accession negotiations.

    During a meeting with the Serbian Prime Minister, who is on a two-day official visit to Cyprus, Omirou referred to the excellent bilateral relations and solidarity of the two countries, which are based on principle, and thanked Dačić for Serbia`s support for a solution of the Cyprus problem, based on international law and UN resolutions.

    [06] House President awards highest distinction to professor Patsalis

    The President of the House of Representatives Yiannakis Omirou awarded the highest distinction of the House, the silver medal, to professor Philippos Patsalis, Chief Executive Medical Director of the Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics.

    Speaking during a brief award giving ceremony, at the office of the House President, in Nicosia, Omirou said that the professor's distinction is "an oasis of hope, self-confidence and optimism" and an acknowledgement that present difficulties can be overcome.

    In March 2011 it was announced that Patsalis and his team discovered a new method of prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome.
