    South Cyprus cabinet triggers process to revoke citizenship from 26

    South Cyprus on Wednesday said it had initiated a process to strip 26 individuals of citizenship after reports by Reuters and other news outlets on the identity of beneficiaries, including the Cambodian elite and a Malaysian fugitive from justice.

    The Reuters investigation published in October revealed that wealthy relatives and allies of Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen received Cypriot passports under a secretive passport for investments scheme.

    Authorities in Cyprus launched a probe after the Reuters report. Interior Minister Constantinos Petrides did not disclose the nationalities or identities of the individuals concerned.
