Anastasiades dismisses report about relatives’ transfers ahead of deposit haircut

Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades has dismissed a report that a firm owned by his son-in-law’s father transferred 21 million euros abroad a few days before the Eurogroup’s decision on March 16 to impose a levy on depositors in Cyprus.

Anastasiades rejected on Sunday the report in Haravgi newspaper as being inaccurate and an attempt to “draw attention from those who are responsible for leading our country to bankruptcy.”

The Cypriot Communist Party, AKEL, has called on the country’s Parliament to investigate the allegations.
