  • [01] Archbishop expresses support to Anastasiades` candidacy

    Archbishop of Cyprus Chrysostomos has expressed his support to Presidential candidate, Democratic Rally leader, Nicos Anastasiades.

    In statements after a meeting they had on Thursday, the Archbishop noted that the country needs a strong government. "We will offer our support to the new government and Mr. Anastasiades," the Primate of the Church of Cyprus said, and wished him every success for the benefit of the country and its people.

    Responding to a question, the Archbishop said that the Church had to express its position with regard to Sunday's elections as half of the country's territory is under Turkish occupation and Cyprus faces serious economic problems.

    [02] Lebanese charged with terrorism to appear in court again on March 7

    Proceedings continued on Thursday at the Assize Court in the case of the 24-year-old Lebanese citizen, holder of a Swedish passport, who is charged with espionage, participation in a terrorist organisation and planning a terrorist attack against Israeli targets.

    On Wednesday, the suspect denied any involvement in a terrorist organisation and that, although he admitted to being a member of Hezbollah for the past four years, he said he was acting as a member of a party and did not support "fanatic Islam."

    The prosecution had requested time to study his testimony in order to begin his cross-examination, which started on Thursday. The court decided that the hearing of the case will continue on March 7 and that the suspect would remain in custody.
