‘Cypriot passport sale is a risk to EU security’

Al Jazeera’s Investigative Unit found criminals, fugitives and sanctioned people could buy EU passports in Cyprus.

Cyprus’s current citizenship-through-investment scheme has been used by criminals and fugitives to gain access to the European Union, Al Jazeera’s Investigative Unit has found.

The Cyprus Papers reveals how among those that bought a Cypriot passport were convicted criminals, people on the run from the law and some under international sanctions.

Al Jazeera investigative journalist Deborah Davies reports.
