Aristodemou sues state over leaked information

Aristo boss Theodoros Aristodemou

Prominent developer Theodoros Aristodemou and his wife, charged in connection with a suspicious land zoning case in Paphos, are suing the state for €10 million, claiming their constitutional right to a fair trial and their human rights have been violated by information leaked to the mass media.

News portal Sigmalive reported that the lawsuit, filed on Wednesday through the law offices of (former attorney-general) Alecos Markides and Tassos Papadopoulos, demands compensation to the tune of €10 million for violating his right to fair trial, right to private life and insulting their reputations and personality.

The couple claimed that the authorities systematically and selectively leaked information concerning the case to the mass media.

Aristodemou, his wife and head of design Roulla, draftsman Christos Solomonides, and former municipal employee Savvas Savva have been charged in connection with suspected land-demarcation fraud case in Skali, Paphos.

The Aristo case came to light in May, after it emerged that the approved plans regarding the demarcation of 177 plots in the Skali area in Paphos were switched with new plans, which seemed to cede approximately 3,000 square metres, worth hundreds of thousands of euros, previously designated as green space, back to Aristo.

The trial is scheduled for January 12 before the Paphos Criminal Court.
