EARLIER this month, Andrew Stunell MP raised a question in the House of Commons on behalf of one of his constituents:
“My constituent Mr Percival is one of many who have been robbed by property fraud in Cyprus following the default of the Alpha bank.
“Will a Minister meet me to discuss with the Greek and Cypriot authorities what might be done to rectify this disgrace?”
Replying to Mr Stunell, Minister for Europe David Lidington said:
“Ministers at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and our high commissioner in Cyprus regularly raise property issues with the Cypriot authorities.
“I have made a commitment to meet members of the all-party group on the defence of the interests of British property owners in Cyprus to discuss the particular case to which my right hon. Friend has referred and the broader issues.
“I would be very happy to talk to him in that context.”
We await further developments.
