    A police officer and the owner of a cafe in Athens were arrested in connection with the illegal issue of residence and work permits to immigrants in return for payment, Attica aliens police said on Sunday.

    The officer was identified as Emmanouil Kantzos, 38, serving in the inner city suburb of Kypseli; and the cafe owner as Stavroula Paravanti, 47.

    In their possession were found documents including authorisation slips, employers' statements, and official declarations by private individuals; three employers' rubber stamps, 50 used social insurance stamps, and 820 euros in cash, police said.

    Arrested on Friday, the two were due to appear before a public prosecutor on Saturday.

    [02] British minister sees Cyprus joining EU in two years

    NICOSIA (ANA) - Cyprus' entry into the European Union is a one-way track and the island republic is likely to become a member of the 15-nation trade bloc in two years, regardless of whether its political problem is resoloved, a British minister said at the weekend.

    In an interview to RIK television in Barcelona during a two-day EU summit that ended on Saturday, the Minister of State for European affairs, Peter Hain, said he hoped that entry negotiations would be completed by the end of 2002, allowing membership in two years from now.
