09/09/2005


The Attorney General of the Republic, Mr Petros Clerides, sent, yesterday, a letter to the Chairman of the Cyprus Commission for the Protection of Competition (CPC), Mr George Christofides, by which he issued an opinion on the case forwarded to him by the Commission for the Protection of Competition, in order to initiate criminal proceedings against the Board of Directors and the Management of the Cyprus Telecommunications Authority (CYTA) for their refusal to comply with the CPC’s order issued on the 5/7/2005.

On 31/8/2005 the Commission for the Protection of Competition had informed the Attorney General about the refusal by the Board of Directors and the Management of CYTA to comply with its order issued on the 5/7/2005 and had requested the Attorney General to examine whether this refusal by the Board of Directors and the Management of CYTA constitutes a criminal offence as per the Criminal Code or any penal laws of the Republic of Cyprus.

In a five-page long legal advice-opinion dated 8/9/2005, the Attorney General states that he embraces the opinion that “the Cyprus Telecommunications Authority and its Board of Directors, by their continued refusal to comply with the order issued by the Commission for the Protection of Competition, may be committing an offence as per Article 137 of the Criminal Code”.

On the basis of these findings, the Attorney General has informed the Commission for the Protection of Competition that he has ordered a police enquiry against the Cyprus Telecommunications Authority.
