On Monday, except for the shocking unexpected, the Audit Office will send the draft of its report on the investigation carried out for naturalization cases approved after May 2018.

The officials involved in the investigation of data from five files received from the Ministry of Interior have almost completed the draft conclusion, which will probably be handed over today to the Auditor General or to the other members of the management team conducting the investigation.

It is most likely that by Monday the management team will have taken its decisions regarding the finalization of the draft and on the same day will send it to the Minister of Interior Nikos Nouris, from whom he will expect comments within a few days, before the conclusion. take its final form from the management team and be made public.

It has been clarified, as we are informed, that the Assistant Auditor General, Kyriakos Kyriakou, will not participate in the management team that will make the decision on the draft and the final conclusion, as there was an agreement that this would be unethical, due to the appointment of Mr. Kyriakos , by the Attorney General, to the four-member commission of inquiry into naturalizations.

The information of insists that the sampling in documents of the five files revealed serious problems that mainly concern the incorrect application of laws related to the financial obligations of the naturalized towards the state and the existence of missing revenues from state services and departments. It has not been confirmed, however, whether the investigation has identified errors, omissions or irregularities in the procedural part of the specific naturalizations of foreign investors and members of their families.

 Through its representative, the service has already clarified that the participation of Mr. Kyriakos in the investigation is done in his personal capacity and that he does not represent the Audit Office there. Although the Attorney General stated that the work of the committee should be completed within a quarter, it is likely that an extension of a few months will be requested, due to the volume and complexity of the work required. Kyriakou in the research for the naturalizations and the parallel continuation of his work in the Audit. Through its representative, the service has already clarified that the participation of Mr. Kyriakos in the investigation is done in his personal capacity and that he does not represent the Audit Office there. Although the Attorney General stated that the work of the committee should be completed within a quarter, it is likely that an extension of a few months will be requested, due to the volume and complexity of the work required. Kyriakou in the research for the naturalizations and the parallel continuation of his work in the Audit. Through its representative, the service has already clarified that the participation of Mr. Kyriakos in the investigation is done in his personal capacity and that he does not represent the Audit Office there. Although the Attorney General stated that the work of the committee should be completed within a quarter, it is likely that an extension of a few months will be requested, due to the volume and complexity of the work required.

The opposition is not in the mood to let the issue of granting citizenship to foreign investors, in the context of the Cyprus Investment Program, leave the top of the news, since, in addition to the seriousness of the issue, it seems to cause political costs to the government. On Monday, two parliamentary committees will discuss different aspects of the unification of naturalizations, but it is clear that the representatives of the executive will have difficult times in both committees.

Specifically, the Finance Committee will begin the discussion of a topic signed by the president of DIKO Nikolas Papadopoulos, entitled "Information on state revenues and the wider economic benefits arising from the Cyprus Investment Program with the exception of Naturalization." In addition to the Minister of Finance, Konstantinos Petridis, and the Director General of the Ministry of Interior, the Auditor General and the Tax Officer were invited to attend. The presence of Odysseas Michailidis acquires additional interest, as a sample investigation of the Audit Service is underway for possible missing state revenues from naturalizations.

On the same day, the Home Affairs Committee will begin a discussion entitled "The information that has recently been published by the Al Jazeera news network regarding the Cyprus Investment Program". The issue was registered at the request of AKEL MPs Giorgos Loukaidis, Giorgos T. Georgiou and Evanthias Savvas and the MP of Ecologists Giorgos Perdikis.

It should not be ruled out that representatives of the executive branch or members of parliament may seek to avoid discussing certain aspects of the matter, given the inquiry being launched by the commission of inquiry appointed by the Advocate General.
