The attorney-general’s office has rejected claims made by Greek activist Ilias Gkionis that implicated Cyprus or Cypriot nationals in a prostitution ring and subsequently codified in relevant documents sent to authorities, as generalities that have not originated from credible sources or individuals.

The Gkionis file was made available to police in January this year, following the case of a 24-year-old woman who said she was raped at a Thessaloniki hotel.

The file included information on Cypriots that were allegedly involved in exploiting women and organising parties for rich clients.

The ruling was made following an investigation ordered by AG Giorgos Savvides after evaluating the material sent by the Greek activist in the backdrop of the ongoing rape case in Greece.

‘No evidence can be established from the testimony made available to the extent that does not even warrant further investigation’, Savvides said, sending the file back to police.

The allegations made headlines early this year, as rumours surfaced of involvement by well-known unnamed Cypriot businessmen and other individuals.
