  • Cyprus: Changes To The Inheritance Process Under European Succession Regulation 650/2012

  • A fight against corruption by the proposed introduction of Criminal Record Certificates for Companie

    Due to existing problems with regards to companies competing for the undertaking of public projects, on the 28 th  September 2015 the Cabinet decided to give an end to the scandals involving the squander of millions of public money by approving an amendment Bill, which would add to the conditions for public tenders, the requirement of providing a Criminal Record Certificate for legal entities. Until today, this was not required due to gaps and loopholes in the existing Law. Provided this Bill will be passed into Law by its publication at the Official Gazette of Cyprus, companies applying for public tender will be asked to produce a certificate that would show they have a clean criminal record.

  • Unjust Banking Practices in Swiss Franc Loan Agreements

    The Cypriot banking system is currently being confronted with the issue of providing foreign loans and in particular Swiss francs to both locals and foreigners to cover their housing requirements. Of principle concern in Cypriot and European Courts are the banking practices used in attracting clients to these financial institutions. It seems that misinformation through the use of various means of bank notifications and practices point towards the use of the distortion and the concealment of essential information to borrowers. The Cypriot banking system (that is sanctioned by European banking) in the provision of Swiss Francs did not in most cases provide a complete and proper briefing of the risks involved in these types of loan contracts that also incorporated exchange and interest rate fluctuations.


    The European Court of Justice (‘ECJ’) in the Gazprom Case (2015) held that anti-suit injunctions issued by arbitral tribunals in relation to the pursuit of Court proceedings within the EU, are not incompatible with the Brussels Regulation. The ECJ held that the BrusselsRegulation does not prevent a Court in an EU Member State from recognizing and enforcing an award containing such an anti-suit injunction, either pursuant to national law, or the New York Convention.
