The Disy deputy does not deny backing the bill to help his client and says he sees nothing wrong in that. But prominent Nicosia advocate Pavlos Angelides yesterday demanded that the lawyer-deputy resign his position in the House over what he described as abuse of power. Pourgourides, the chairman of the House watchdog committee, has grabbed the headlines in recent months with his persistent campaign to nail Dinos Michaelides for allegedly abusing his power as Interior Minister.
Pourgourides's claims eventually forced Michaelides to resign -- but Angelides now alleges the Disy deputy is guilty of the same sort of corrupt practices he charges the former Minister of. On April 30, the House plenum approved a legal amendment that means the issuing of a dud cheque in payment for illegal goods or services is not an offence.
Angelides claimed Pourgourides' son Evangelos, who represented Kyriakides, secured two postponements to sentencing solely in order to allow time for the plenum to amend the law, believing this would get his client off the hook. The court had accepted that the dud cheques had been issued to repay debts incurred under conditions that amounted to illegal usury interest of 42 per cent. Under the amended law, Kyriakides would not be culpable for writing a dud cheque for an illegal transaction.
On April 20 he asked for a further postponement, again to repay his debts. Sentencing was set for May 17," the lawyer said. On May 17 -- the plenum having meanwhile approved the law change -- Evangelos Pourgourides "triumphantly" presented the new law, claiming his client could no longer be sentenced, Angelides said. The court did, however, sentence Kyriakides, stating that the issue was that bouncing cheques had been issued and it mattered not what for.
Christos Pourgourides sent Angelides a letter in response to his claims yesterday, defending his actions and explaining his reasons for pushing the legal amendment. He said the aim of the amendment was to avoid people being punished for actions that the House did not consider illegal. When a deputy is handling a case as a lawyer and something unjust is happening at the expense of his client, is it unethical for him to try and stop this injustice?
I would do the same without hesitation if it came up again tomorrow," the deputy stated. He also said that Angelides had "political" motives for levelling accusations against him, and noted that Angelides represented the doctor in the court case. I can't discuss procedure," Markides told the Cyprus Mail yesterday. In January, the Attorney-general announced that there was only a five per cent chance that Chrysanthos would not end up in the dock. Markides yesterday confirmed that Scotland Yard had issued an arrest warrant against the ex-bishop -- who has been linked to a handful of multi- million pyramid scams spanning the globe -- in connection with trying to defraud a London-based investor from New Zealand.
Only if Chrysanthos tried to do leave the country could the British arrest warrant be enforced by Interpol, a police source said. Chrysanthos is in any case on the stop list here in view of pending legal proceedings. Last week, the New York-based Securities and Exchange Commission filed fraud and broker-dealer registration violation charges against the ex- bishop's US lawyer Lewis Rivlin; Chrysanthos himself is named as a relief defendant.
This included an Ecuadorean charity for underprivileged girls. Chrysanthos resigned last November and was suspended from any religious duties for two years by the Holy Synod, after the Church accused him of a string of misdemeanours, including greed, and profiteering through currency speculation. He had no option but to stand down before the Church instigated defrocking proceedings against him for damaging its good name.
The Chrysanthos affair came at a time when the Orthodox Church was reeling from other sleaze allegations, including homosexuality, sexual abuse of nuns and a married priest running off with a Romanian stripper. Local police investigations into his business dealings have included countries such as Greece, England, Belgium and Spain.
