Cyprus to probe Cambodia cash-for-passports case

Cyprus said on Wednesday (Oct 23) it will investigate reports that family members and allies of Cambodia’s long-time Prime Minister Hun Sen had obtained Cypriot EU passports under a citizenship-for-investment scheme.

“There will be an investigation into cases of naturalisation that have appeared in the media… If anything untoward is found, decisions will be taken, including revocation of citizenship if required,” government spokesman Prodromos Prodromou told reporters.

He said the interior ministry would carry out the probe into cases predating the introduction of more stringent regulations on the citizenship scheme, without referring specifically to the Cambodian case.
