Second Cyprus politician quits in wake of passport scheme scandal

Demetris Syllouris, the Cypriot parliament speaker, has announced he will resign after he was implicated in a scheme to sell passports to criminals through the country’s citizenship through investment programme.
Syllouris was filmed as part of Al Jazeera’s The Cyprus Papers Undercover, an investigation which revealed how criminals were able to obtain Cypriot passports, granting them access to the EU and its internal markets.

Al Jazeera’s David Harrison joins us live from Nicosia, Cyprus for the latest updates.

  2. It's quite hard to lock criminals in Cyprus- for they believe in their priority and superiority over all other people. If someone has courage to talk of their crimes directly-he will be accused of mental disorders and punished. I wonder if these criminal dangerous people checked their mental state themselves.

  3. DEAR DONNY. ITS A PLEASURE TO INFORM YOU THAT I HAVE MADE A GREAT DISCOVER IN THE US NEWS BUSINESS. YOU CANNOT IMAGINE WHO IS RUNIING THE NEWSCAST BROADBAND CHANNEL NAMED CNN. A INDIAN WRITER THAT WAS VERY FAMOUS IN THE US. DEPAK CHOPRA. I CAN IMAGINE THAT IS A CASE VERY SIMILAR TO THE OYSHIO CASE. CHEERS MATE -TM

  4. He gets a lot of benefits , all of them in the video say they knew they were being filmed and they gone with it 😂 Please show some videos of the President as well , we are waiting!!!

  5. Al Jazeera, You are a Propaganda Machine for Turkey's Aspirations to Destroy Cyprus's EU Position to protect their own country. There is NO Illegal Activity done in the Video, at all. Not a SINGLE law broke. I know laws very well, almost all countries have an Investment for Citizenship program. (USA, UK, Canada, everybody) Qatar isnt even a Democracy, and why do you care about Cyprus ? You Help Turkey as an Acomplis to Ethnic Cleansing, and now you use Propaganda to Trick the EU, World and even un-educated people in Cyprus to hate their own country.

    Maybe you should look inside Qatar first and demand democracy !

    NO illegal activity was accomplished. All Countries have Investment for Citizenship, all around the world. And, there is more Russian Money in Germany and USA than in Cyprus. That is 100 %.

    Propaganda !

    Al Jazeera needs to stop Aiding and Abiding in Turkey's Continued Ethnic Cleansing and Genocide of Greeks, Armenians, Assyrians and Kurdish. !

  6. He needs to be in jail . The president of Cyprus needs to resign . He did nothing to stop the corruption in the country. His police department is nothing more than a corrupt organized crime..It is sad. Maybe the Turkish Cypriot government is less corrupt.

  7. I’m English and live on holiday in Cyprus for several months each year. This scheme of selling passports to Russians and Chinese has been going on for several years. Other examples of corruption include payment of professional fees commonly in cash – that way income tax is @voided. This place is corrupt in all government matters. Police accept money and goods as bribes, etc.

  8. If you do in pakistan of exposing speaker of Parliament you woulb punished for exposing. Instead of punishing speaker of Parliament. Same incident happened in pakistan karachi but the person who exposed them he got court trail

  9. Everyone in the documentary deserves to be punished!!! They’ve all cashed in their money and left the people so humiliated.

    It’s amazing how objective the documentary was though on the CIP.. they didn’t even mention any other corrupted acts and abuse of power they’ve committed only the past few years..

  10. He belongs in prison for the rest of his life – doing hard labour. That would be if justice had anything to do it… so that's not gonna happen. And people wonder what went wrong with the world…

  11. Thanks to the Al Jazeera journalist we have seen this man out of the parliament. I am sure you have more evidence about many wrong doings for the island politicians, please do not hesitate at any time to expose the corruption that has devastated many lives of Cypriots.
