As Police spokesperson Andreas Angelides told Phileleftheros daily newspaper, they have handed over two files for three contracts, and are now awaiting instructions from the Attorney General.

According to police information, the two files prepared by the Larnaca Crime Investigation task force concern a contract for the biological station and two other LSB contracts. As far as the biological station is concerned it appears that no criminal offenses arise, however the Attorney General who will study all the facts is to have the last say.

The other criminal case file relates to two contracts in relation to the awarding of a tender for the LSB. Although there are no direct testimonies on the matter, it would appear that a number of people (5-6) were bribed.

After investigations involving also the opening of accounts, police came to the conclusion a number of criminal offences have been committed.

Decisions are expected to be taken next month, once the Legal Service has examined the data before them.
