Kittis rushed to hospital

Stathis Kittis

STATHIS Kittis, the incarcerated ex-boss of the Cyprus Telecommunications Authority, was rushed from his prison cell to hospital yesterday afternoon after complaining of chest pains.

Doctors at Nicosia general hospital performed tests on Kittis and decided he should stay there overnight as a precaution.

Today, Kittis will undergo more specialised tests to determine whether he should be interned at the hospital or otherwise returned to the Central Prisons.

Kittis was placed under guard in a special hospital ward treating prison inmates.

The former CyTA boss is currently serving an eight-year prison sentence after having been found guilty by a criminal court of corruption, accepting bribes and legalising ill-gotten gains.

Kittis was one of several people implicated in the case, which revolved around the purchase by CyTA’s pension fund of office space in Dromolaxia at several times the going market value.
