Cyprus has satisfactorily dealt with nine of the 16 recommendations on tackling corruption, according to the latest Greco (Group of States against Corruption) report, published on Tuesday.

The findings are detailed in the second compliance report, which were also underlined by the attorney-general (AG).

Cyprus has implemented satisfactorily or dealt with in a satisfactory manner nine of the 16 recommendations. One has not been implemented, which concerns the independence of prosecutors.

The AG’s office said a bill on that matter is before parliament.

Greco however noted that “the draft would benefit from additional refinement to ensure that individual law officers/prosecutors are able to conduct their duties in a more autonomous way, guided by the safeguards necessary under the rule of law.”

It called Cyprus’ authorities “to deal with the planned reform of the Law Office of the Republic without delay.”
