Greece and Cyprus to sign cooperation memorandum in justice issues

Justice Minister Stavros Kontonis and his Cypriot counterpart Ionas Nikolaou agreed on the signature of a memorandum of cooperation between the Greek and Cypriot justice ministries and judicial authorities, during their meeting on Tuesday.

Kontonis also briefed his Cypriot counterpart about Greek asylum committees and how they function, while they agreed that the Greek side should transfer knowhow on the handling of cases relating to asylum applications and tax differences.

There will be a specific mention of this in the memorandum of cooperation, with an option for the signature of a more specialised memorandum between judicial authorities in the two countries.

The meeting also covered issues of criminal law and criminal procedure, as well as other issues, while the Cypriot side called for a broader exchange of views and cooperation on administrative and constitutional law and human rights.
