Supreme court prepares to review dodgy bills

The supreme court will next month begin hearings over 16 bills referred to the court by President Nicos Anastasiades after they were deemed problematic.

Most were found to include some provisions that clash with the constitution while others were entirely unconstitutional.

The bills were among numerous pieces of legislation passed by parliament on April 14, its last day before it dissolved ahead of last May’s elections.

Attorney-General Costas Clerides had criticised MPs at the time for being sloppy and irresponsible.

On Monday, the supreme court set November 15 as the starting date for the hearings. The last batch of the bills will be considered on January 11.
