Full benefits for departing Syllouris

Demetris Syllouris

Former House president Demetris Syllouris, who resigned amid a cash for passports scandal, will be granted full benefits, including a car and security detail, it emerged on Friday.

Syllouris was forced to resign on Thursday following an undercover video showing him offering to help a Chinese businessman with a criminal record secure citizenship.

Reports on Friday said that despite the humiliation from the resignation, Syllouris, 67, would be getting a golden handshake in the region of €100,000 on top of the around €160,000 he received for his term as MP.

Moreover, the former House president will get to keep the service limo – whose expenses will be footed by taxpayers — a security detail, and €3,000 per month for a secretary whom he does not need to employ.

He will also be receiving around €5,000 per month as pension.
