Authorities in Nicosia have launched an investigation after Greek media published the names of politicians who allegedly had loans forgiven by three Cypriot banks at the height of the crisis.
BBC reports Sunday that the Bank of Cyprus, Laiki and Hellenic Bank apparently wrote off loans of EUR millions to companies, local authorities, and politicians from some of the island's biggest parties.
The list has now been handed to the ethics committee of the Cypriot Parliament.
