NICOSIA – Cyprus’ Attorney General says he will launch a probe into allegations made by the country’s central bank chief that a prominent law firm “bribed” the Deputy Attorney General.

Costas Clerides said the probe will be handled by an independent criminal investigator.

The matter surfaced when a member of the Central Bank’s executive board told a parliamentary ethics committee hearing that Central Bank chief Chrystalla Georghadji alleged law firm Andreas Neocleous & Co had ‘bribed’ deputy Attorney General Rikkos Erotokritou in a case involving his personal bank deposits seized during the country’s 2013 international financial rescue.

Georghadji said in a statement that she has never impugned Erotokritou’s personal or professional integrity. The law firm said it would launch libel proceedings against Georghadji.
