New Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General assume their duties

New Attorney General, George Savvides, and new Deputy Attorney General, Savvas Angelides, took over their duties on Monday after the abrupt resignation of Costas Clerides who was expected to step down from the Attorney General’s post in July.
Speaking during the ceremony of his replacement the outgoing Attorney General said that during his term in office the Legal Service had to face some really serious situations, as the financial crisis, criminal corruption cases and the crisis in the health sector due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“With good cooperation with the Auditor General’s office and the Police, we have taken to court and secured convictions on corruption charges, many public figures, such as MPs, former ministers, board members and a former Central Banker,” Clerides said.
