CYPRUS GOVERNMENT BROKE ITS OWN LAWS IN GRANTING ‘GOLDEN PASSPORTS’

On 7 June, EurActiv reported that an official inquiry has found that Cyprus’s government broke the law on countless occasions in granting citizenship to thousands of people in a now discredited passports-for-cash scheme.  It awarded citizenship to 6,779 people between 2007 and 2020, the vast majority of them Russians, before the scheme was scrapped.
