Earlier this week the Mayor of Paralimni, Theodoros Pyrillis, published both his own and his spouse's previously declared assets by sharing the details on social media.
According to Cyprus law, elected and state officials must submit details of their assets as well as the assets of their spouses and underage children.
Posting on his own Facebook page, for the sake of transparency, Mr Pyrillis uploaded the financial details that have been submitted to the audit office.
Specifically this showed the following:
Immovable property € 1.6 million
Vehicles € 53,709
Shares € 8,750
Savings € 41,618
Loans € 100,340
Kyriaki Nikola Kitsiou:
Immovable property € 2 million
Vehicles € 81,000
Shares € 25,869
Savings € 109,076
Debts € 13,559
The Mayor has recently been embroiled in a very pubic dispute with the Auditor General, Odysseas Michaelides. Responding to allegations published in Phileleftheros, Pyrillis stated that the anonymous complaints against him, which led to the comments and enquiries by the Auditor General are non-existent, stressing that he had already sent a letter to the Auditor General with the facts of the case. Mr Pyrillis has requested that a public apology be made.
It was noted that in December 2016, Pyrillis sent to the Auditor General, proxy documents granting the AG the right to check financial details of both himself and his spouse at any time during his term as Mayor.
