Royal Baby: Prince William, Kate Register Prince George, List Occupations as Prince and Princess Prince William signed the birth register for his newborn son, giving his full name as His Royal Highness Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge Baby George was officially registered as a member of the Royal Family – with his mum’s “occupation” given as princess rather than duchess. The formalities of recording his birth were taken care of by his dad, the Duke of Cambridge. But the reference to Kate as a princess is unusual, as she rarely uses the title Princess William of Wales, which she took when she married in 2011. She generally sticks to Duchess of Cambridge for royal engagements. But sources say she was probably listed as princess on the birth certificate because it is the more senior title.

Kate Middleton registers Prince George’s birth - giving her occupation as “Princess of the United Kingdom” Unsurprisingly, Wills, 31, did not have to queue with other parents at Westminster register office to complete the paperwork for their first child. Instead registrar Alison Cathcart travelled to Kensington Palace, where he was waiting having left the latest addition to The Firm – and third in line to the throne – in the loving arms of new mum Kate, 31, and her proud parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, at their home in Bucklebury, Berkshire. The birth certificate confirmed that Catherine Elizabeth and William Arthur Philip Louis, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, had a son, George Alexander Louis, born at St Mary’s hospital in Paddington, Westminster, on July 22. Ms Cathcart, who filled in the details before William signed the form, described her involvement in recording the birth as “a great pleasure” and privilege. She said: “We also registered the birth of the Queen and Prince Charles and princes William and Harry, so it’s great to see that tradition continue.” This weekend William is due to take part in a charity polo match with Harry in Ascot, Berks, before returning to work next week as a search and rescue pilot based at RAF Valley on Anglesey, North Wales, after two weeks’ paternity leave.

Cyprus blast defence Minister Jailed A former Cypriot defence minister has been given a fiveyear jail term for manslaughter after a munitions blast two years ago which killed 13 people and crippled the island’s electricity grid. Costas Papacostas, who served in the island’s former communist government, was found guilty of manslaughter and causing death through negligence. The 74-year-old was found guilty on July 9 and was not present in court. Three senior officers in the island’s fire and emergency services were also jailed for two years for causing death through negligence. The court ruled that the defendants had been responsible for a sequence of failures to safeguard a cargo of confiscated Iranian munitions that exploded on July 11 2011. Papacostas resigned in the wake of the blast. A second minister on trial, former foreign minister Marcos Kyprianou, was cleared. The munitions, which included compressed gunpowder and shell casings, were kept for months in scorching heat at the island’s only naval base, next to Vassilikos, its main power station. Vassilikos was extensively damaged in the blast, in the island’s worst peacetime disaster. During the trial the court heard testimony that senior officials had played down or been unresponsive to warnings from lower-ranking officers that the cargo was unstable.

Stelios award for business cooperation in Cyprus 2013

The Stelios Philanthropic Foundation is giving each of 10 entrepreneurial teams a chance to win €10,000 for their business, dedicated to promoting trust and bi-communal teamwork in Cyprus. Initiated by easyGroup founder, Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, the Stelios Award for Business Cooperation in Cyprus has become a milestone on the island since 2009 with €1 million awarded to-date to 20 partnerships comprising Greek-Cypriot and Turkish-Cypriot entrepreneurs. The Awards promote island-wide, bi-communal business cooperation by giving promising ventures the funding boost they need to grow. Winning partnerships exhibit entrepreneurial passion, a unique and solid business idea and a dedication to bringing the communities of Cyprus together for the benefit of the island. Up to ten awards of €10,000 will be presented to those teams which best demonstrate bi-cultural teamwork and mutual trust at an event organized by the Foundation on September 10, 2013.

Paphos best kept secret see page 4 2

Stelios said: “When I started these awards nearly 5 years ago, Cyprus was a much more prosperous place to do business. Now that we are in the middle of a financial crisis, it is even more important to remember that promoting bi-communal business is the best way to achieve both lasting peace on the island and job creation! Cyprus is too small to be divided and entrepreneurs will be the ones that will create the new jobs. I hope my 10k euro for each partnership will make the difference between success and failure for a young business!” For more information visit www.stelios.com www.cyprusreporter.com

Prince Harry says Prince George’s birth means “Pressure is OFF” for him to have Children The proud new uncle said his dad Prince Charles is “over the moon” at becoming a grandfather for the first time, shifting the expectations for grandchildren away from Harry Prince Harry has revealed “the pressure is off” for him to have children following the birth of Prince George. The proud new uncle said his dad Prince Charles is “over the moon” at becoming a grandfather for the first time, shifting the expectations for grandchildren away from Harry. Chatting to Royal Marines and their families at HM Naval Base in Devonport, Plymouth, Harry told one military girlfriend: “My father is over the moon to be a grandfather.” Tasha Reilly, 35, who was the guest of her partner Lt Colonel Tristan Harris, 42, then asked if he would be rushing to have children now, commenting: “No pressure then?”

members of the parade and their relatives. One youngster excited to meet the prince was six-year-old Jacob, who presented Harry with a colourful drawing of them together on a Naval ship with the message “Dear Harry, You’re fantastic”. Harry commented: “It looks like you’re driving.” The Prince later joined military wife Marie Francis, 68, to cut the ribbon on the centre’s new training block dedicated to her husband, Colour Sergeant Michael James Francis, who was awarded a Distinguished Service Medal for his bravery in the Falklands conflict. Colour Sgt Francis, who suffers from MS, could not attend the ceremony, but Harry commented on the veteran’s “amazing” accomplishments. The 67-year-old was working as a coxswain on a landing craft when enemy

But Harry, whose brother William and sister-in-law Kate welcomed baby and quickly replied: “No, he’s got one grandchild now it will be fine. The pressure’s off now.” The Prince, 28, was visiting the Naval Base to officially open the new Royal Marines Tamar, a centre of amphibious excellence. He stepped in to review a parade by 1 Assault Group Royal Marines, with music including the National Anthem played by HM Band of the Royal Marines. Harry then unveiled a plaque officially opening the base’s new £30million facility, where Marines will train in using vehicles including hovercraft and all types of coastal and river landings, before taking the parade salute. Joking when he first arrived about the chill in the air following the recent heatwave, Harry told Marines waiting to greet him: “Typical British, we complain when it’s too hot and we complain when it’s too cold.” Wearing his Household Calvary service dress uniform with his light blue Army Air Corps beret, the Prince then chatted to

aircraft began bombing RFA Galahad. He ferried survivors from the battle zone to shore, helping more than 100 people, some seriously wounded. Mrs Francis said: “It’s a great honour to have Prince Harry here. He would be very very proud.” Using a knife to cut the ribbon, Harry joked afterwards he could use it to “fend off the Taliban for next time”. Colonel Garth Manger, Commanding Officer of 1 Assault Group Royal Marines, said: “Having Prince Harry open Royal Marines Tamar is a great honour and serves to highlight the importance of this new bespoke amphibious base. “For the first time the Royal Navy will have all the amphibious elements together in one place ensuring that we deliver real operational capability in a cost effective and professional manner.”

Charity event raises €2,020 for eye Cancer

Ollie’s Taverna Trimithousa, Paphos recently held a number of charity event’s to raise awareness for childhood eye cancer also know as Retinoblastoma. One event event was Ascot Ladies Day and the other was the Retinoblastoma music event. Overall between both events a total of 2,020 euros was raised for the Charity. Val who was one of the Charity event organisers said “We felt this event was important to raise awareness of this type of cancer no one has heard of it and one our employee’s grandson a 4 yr old child suffered from Retinoblastoma” Val also said “I would like to note all the acts at our events performed for free this meant that every cent raised went to the charity” The 4yr old child Owen whose grandparents live in the village of Trimithousa, who is a Retinoblastoma survivor was present at the events. Retinoblastoma is an extremely rare form of cancer and effects mostly children under the age of 5 years. In the UK 40-50% of children are diagnosed per year. In about 45% of cases the cause is a faulty gene, if left untreated it is fatal and 2% per year die from the condition. Currently around 70% of children diagnosed have eyes removed in order to save their life. Children are not routinely checked for this disease until they start school, this is sometimes too late. Retinoblastoma presents in two main types, hereditary and non-hereditary. The hereditary form can pass on to any future children the person has. Thankfully Retinoblastoma is rare and easily treated if diagnosed early enough, the impact however long term can be traumatic regarding treatment, family and use of prosthetic eyes.

O

ur Mamma Mia 10 day summer school concluded with a performance at the Kefalos Beach Village on Sunday 28th July.

Ancient City

Revealed in Larnaca A part of the city dated back to the 16th-Century B.C., located close to the international airport of Larnaca, was brought to light by the excavations of Gothenburg University of Sweden.

Pensions Special: UK Annuity Rates Rising – Good news? Pensions Special: UK Annuity Rates Rising – Good news? For the past decade, pensions news has been bleak at the best of times and scandalously unbelievable at the worst. The IMF has predicted a £750bn pensions shortfall over the next three years (June 2012). This means that many people won’t be able draw what they are expecting. And in October 2011, 5,345 of the 6,533 private sector final salary schemes were in deficit (82%) to the tune of a staggering £312 billion (National Association of Pension Funds, June 2012). In spite of endless pensions doom and gloom, are things now on the up?

According to the Department of Antiquities of Cyprus the city was destroyed and abandoned without being inhabited again. So far only a small part of it has been excavated.

A number of annuity providers have reported increased annuity rates over the past few months with the increase between June and July 2013 reaching 2% for some. This means that for a joint-life annuity taken at 65 years on a £100k fund, a pensioner would now be drawing about £4,955 per year.

The excavations revealed ,among others, items such as pottery and bronze objects. Several pots imported from the eastern Mediterranean have been found.

However, back in 1990 a pension fund of £100k would have secured pensioners an annual income of around £15,500. The biting truth is that the average UK pension pot is only £30,000 which at today’s annuity rates would pay out about £1,700 annually, not enough to even think about running car or going on a family holiday!

Close to the site a room which contained large vases full of Murex shells that were used as a source of purple dye,were also discovered. According to the Department of Antiquities of Cyprus, in antiquity copper was exported from the island in northwest Greece as well as the current Western Europe, the eastern Mediterranean, Anatolia and Egypt. The high standard of living for Cypriots during Bronze Age was not only due to copper but also to exports of high quality Cypriot pottery and purple fabrics. Cypriots imported gold, silver, lead and artwork mainly from Greece, Egypt and the eastern Mediterranean. There is also evidence of import to Cyprus of salted fish from the Nile in Egypt.

Back in the old days…

Things were definitely better in the old days. From Gordon Brown’s 1997 removal of pensions tax relief and the resulting overnight closure of final salary schemes, to the shocking fund performance of the past decade and plummeting annuity rates, it’s clear that the pensions system is in a very poor state. Consequently millions of people are set to retire in poverty, or at least to face the prospect of working much longer than they had hoped.

What can you do? To many, pensions are a black hole filled with over-inflated promises and cryptic annual statements, which, without a degree in business finance, you’d be hard pressed to interpret. Many people sit on a number of frozen pensions from previous employment and don’t properly understand their value, projected returns or terms and conditions.

The answer is … shop around. We all shop around for car insurance, home insurance and mortgage rates to save a few hundred pounds every year. Pensions, though, are often neglected despite the fact that the impact of a poorly managed pension can cost you thousands of pounds a year for the rest of your life. Whilst a great many pension investors are suffering, those who take appropriate action and advice are still able to access exceptional investment opportunities brought about by the very circumstances that are causing problems for mainstream pension investors.

So, what can be done? Here are a few pointers: 1. Take control of your current pension situation Make sure you take control of your current pension(s) by ensuring that they’re responsibly and wisely invested in well-managed, well-performing funds. A thorough professional pension assessment from a UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) regulated firm will help you better understand your pension situation and will provide advice on where your pension fund is best placed. 2. Annuity or income-drawdown? If you’re approaching retirement, seek advice from an FCA regulated advisor on whether ‘income drawdown’ may be an alternative to purchasing an annuity. The income drawdown method offers more flexibility and control. There are also more options to pass funds on when you die. On the flip side, income draw down is less secure than taking an annuity. Excessive withdrawals and poor fund performance will deplete the fund so it is important to get good advice before making a decision. Again, a thorough professional pension assessment from a UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) regulated firm will assist you in making this decision. 3. Make a wider retirement plan Finally and quite obviously - make sure you have a wider retirement plan. This might include property, savings, businesses and other investments, but in a nutshell, don’t expect your pension fund to be your sole ‘get out of work free card’. Basically, doing nothing is not an option. Even if people have the smallest pension funds, discarding them in frustration or apathy will only allow pension funds to win. Undoubtedly in the future pension companies will be sitting on billions worth of poorly managed and unclaimed pots of funds. Don’t let it be yours!

THE AUCTIONEERS LOT Our resident expert is Benjamin Terence Green a licensed auctioneer and valuer with over 30 years experience. Ben currently holds regular Friday auctions at Hammers Auction House Chloraka in Paphos.

REPLY Dear Julie, The charming jug is as the back stamp says manufactured by Copeland as part of their Spode range. It is a range entitled Blue Italian. Spode is a Stoke on Trent based pottery company that was founded by Josiah Spode (1733-1797) In 1770 Josiah Spode earned renown for perfecting under-glaze blue transfer printing in 1783-1784 – a development that led to the launch in 1816 of Spode’s Blue Italian range which has remained in production ever since. Spode was succeeded in the same business in 1833 by Copeland and Garrett, who often used the name Spode in their marks. On 23 April 2009 Portmeirion Pottery purchased their rival Royal Worcester and Spode brands, together with some of the stock, after they had been placed into administration the previous November. The back stamp was used in this format between 1833 right up to the early 1970s. Often Spode collectors enjoy the detective work of dating their individual pieces. Given the long use of the stamp it can be quite a challenge on occasions. However this charming piece I would certainly place in the mid 1960’s. If it is in as good condition as you say I would estimate 45 – 55 Euros at auction. Insurance value 80 Euros

REPLY Dear Bill, I would like to think that this offer was made in genuine ignorance by the party concerned. Then again I would like to think everyone was honest and as we all know sadly, this is not always the case. Let us start at the very beginning; I am a firm believer in the song when it says that is the very best place to start. This is a table no need to be an expert there. The design of this table however is known as a GATELEG table. A gate leg table is a type of table first introduced in England in the 16th century. The table top has a fixed section and one or two hinged leaves, which, when not in use, fold down below the fixed section to hang vertically. As such, a gate leg table is part of the table type known as a drop leave. The hinged section, or flap, was supported on pivoted legs joined at the top and bottom by wood known as stretchers constituting a gate. Large flaps had two supports, which had the advantage of providing freer leg space in the centre. The earliest gate leg tables of the 16th and 17th century were typically made of oak, Your table is a George II walnut oval gate leg table. The table is English and dates c1730 – 40. Auction value in this market? I would suggest a fixed reserve of 6550 Euros. Should you sell it for 20 Euros I leave you to be the judge of that!

I will once again suggest to anyone thinking of disposing of items from whole house contents to single pieces to contact Hammer’s auction room on 99931123 and arrange a free verbal valuation before you sell that 3 piece suite or give away the family silver!

Snake bite and your pet Author: Dr Inna - Peyia Veterinary Clinic

There has been a large number of snake bite patients at Dr Inna’s veterinary clinic (6 this week, 41 this summer). If your pet is bitten by a snake here is some additional information of the after effects of the bite so that you have a better understanding of what to expect in the days that follow this emergency situation.In Cyprus we have the blunt nosed viper,you can visit the cyprusreporter.com to familiarise yourself with the snake ,we have placed a video on our website. This snake is venomous and has no problem to attack if provoked. As snakes hibernate or are inactive during cold weather, snake bites usually occur in the summer months Our pets are naturally curious and have natural hunting instincts it is not uncommon for our favourite four legged friends to cross paths with a snake here in Cyprus in our gardens or on our daily walks. Venomous snakes immobilize their prey by injecting modified saliva (venom) into their prey’s tissues through their fangs (specialized hollow teeth). Snakes also use their venoms for self-defense and will bite people or pet’s who threaten, startle, or provoke them As snakes like to hide we suggest you remove all dead leaves from under your garden perimeter bushes and keep your garden clear of long grass, remove any piles of rubbish and dont leave uncovered boxes in your garage. This will help to reduce the number of hiding spots for snakes to reside in. A Viper bite is extremely painful and primarily vasculotoxic, this means it causes rapidly developing swelling of the bitten part. The venom prevents the blood supply to the wounded area and the surrounding tissue dies. The absorption of the venom into your pet’s system is slow and it occurs via the lymphatic system and leads to a condition called lymphangitis. It is very common following a viper bite for the blood to fail to clot and this is one of the main complications. The loss of blood in the internal organs decrease blood pressure and this leads to shock and internal organ failure. With organ failure your pet can fail to urinate and fluid will build up in the lungs resulting in pulmonary oedema. Tissue destruction (necrosis) around the bite site occurs, this is a normal healing process following snake bite but the extent of the necrosis depends on the amount of venom injected and local necrosis on limbs can result in amputation and permanent disability. Do not put a tourniquet above snake bite it will cause a circulation problem and increases the possibility of limb necrosis All these effects of snakebite are potentially fatal but not all pets will experience these complications and the quicker you arrive at the clinic for emergency treatment the better your pets chances of survival so seeking emergency veterinary care is of paramount importance

First Aid If you suspect your pet has been bitten by a snake you should immobilise your pet and try to keep him/her as quiet as possible. From your first aid kit mix the Hydrocortisone as instructed and inject into the muscle. You will be instructed how to do this when you purchase your first aid kit from a clinic (available at Dr Inna’s clinic Peyia 99573301 or 26622775). Do not give atropine, coffee or alcohol as this increases the heart rate and the toxins will enter the blood stream faster. . You need to keep your pet as calm as possible. Do not allow your pet to walk or run, carry your pet to the car or if outdoors bring your car to the pet. Call a clinic immediately and alert the clinic you are on the way giving your expected time of arrival this allows the clinic to be prepared and waiting when you arrive .It is vital that you take your pet to the clinic as quickly as possible. The sooner your pet is treated, the better their chances of survival. There has been no recorded fatality in humans in Cyprus for over 15 years but if bitten you will require hospital treatment so don’t put yourself at risk by trying to kill the snake. Signs of Snake Bite please note some or all of these symptoms may be evident: Swelling to an area of the body, Sudden weakness followed by collapse, Shaking or twitching of the muscles, Vomiting, Dilated pupils not responsive to light, Blood in the urine, In the later stages paralysis may occur.

What to expect at the Clinic Firstly a member of the medical team on duty will examine your pet, assess the clinical signs they are showing and determine the best course of action. Treatment varies with each individual case, how severe the symptoms are and how rapidly the symptoms progress. Treatment usually consists of intravenous fluids and the administration of medicines to neutralise the snake venom in the pet’s body. Antibiotics will be given intravenously and pain relief and anti inflammatory injections administered. Other supportive care may also be required - including oxygen supplementation and even breathing for the pet if they are not breathing well on their own. This needs to continue until the circulating antivenom has been neutralised and any bound venom has worn off. Your pet will be required to remain at the clinic for a minimum of 2 days so that the treatment can be completed and the pet is on the road to recovery. Blood tests following snake bite are suggested to determine the damage to your pet’s internal organs.

Recovery Approximately 80% of pets survive snake bite if treated quickly. The survival rate is much lower however for pets that are left untreated, and death can occur. Recovery from a snake bite usually takes 48 hours if the pet receives prompt veterinary attention and the snake bite is not severe. However, some pets will take substantially longer to make a full recovery due to tissue damage or to internal organs and will require intensive and prolonged nursing care. Dr Inna’s who provided The Cyprus Reporter with this information hope’s that it does not frighten you too much. It is recommended that you buy a first aid kit, this will provide you with both snake bite and poison emergency aids. These kits are not a substitute to medical care but they will assist you until you reach a clinic. www.cyprusreporter.com

Cyprus approves casino license

T

he Council of Ministers decided to grant one license for an integrated casino resort, Government Spokesman Christos Stylianides announced, adding that the licensing procedure will start immediately on a “fast-track” basis. The Council of Ministers decided to grant one license for the creation of an integrated casino resort in Cyprus,” he said in statements following the meeting. He said the position for a casino resort is based on a detailed study carried out by an international firm, commissioned by the government. Stylianides explained that the procedure for granting the license will start immediately on a “fast track” basis and will be completed in 12 months “because the country`s economic and tourist development needs a casino with specifications of the same standards as those of the big casinos around the world.” The Spokesman said the Council of Ministers considers that “it is absolutely necessary to retain external advisers with specialized knowledge and experience at all stages of the process, including the final stage of the signing of the casino development license with the successful applicant.” “The aim of the Government is to have a credible international procedure that will attract international investment interest for the creation of casino-resort in Cyprus,” Stylianides concluded.

UK travel company with packages to Cyprus collapses

N

orth London’s Travel Click Ltd has ceased trading with immediate effect, according to a British Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) statement, in what is described as the first significant travel company closure of the summer in the UK. The company had been offering luxury holidays as well as no-frills flights together with discounted accommodation to Cyprus for the past five years. Its luxury packages also covered Greece, Dubai, Las Vegas, Florida and some other destinations, while the low cost options concerned Mediterranean resorts. Some of the company’s offers were promoted to UK customers through popular travel websites. Travel Click’s customers who had booked inclusive packages are covered by CAA’s compensation guarantee scheme, but those who had booked only the flights or the accommodation will have to consult the relevant UK authorities. Tourists who are already abroad will be able to see through the rest of their package, although they may have to accept alternative return flight arrangements.

Tax on Interest has increased to 30% Living in Cyprus has many attractions, but it is not without some drawbacks, particularly unfamiliar local bureaucracy and a foreign tax system which can be confusing. Austerity measures are now being imposed in Cyprus, so it is more important than ever to take professional advice. Besides the current banking situation, tax on bank interest has increased to 30% and dividends are taxed at 20%. Many British expatriates are now paying more tax in Cyprus on their investment income than they did in the UK. However there are still significant tax benefits to living in Cyprus. Retirees can benefit from a special 5% rate on their foreign pension income. With specialist advice, you can also enjoy favourable tax treatment on your capital investments. If you are a British expatriate living in Cyprus, you require highly personalised and specialist advice to ensure your assets are structured as tax efficiently as possible and your investment strategy is tailor-made for you.

WRONG ADVICE COULD COST BRITONS LOSING THEIR CYPRUS PROPERTY CLAIMS By: George Kounis - Maxwell Alves Solicitors

As thousands of British buyers of properties in Cyprus are getting ready to take on the banks before their claims are time-barred on 31/12/2013 advice to take action in Cyprus instead of England could come at heavy cost Although a few hundred Britons are now taking action against the banks and property developers for misselling there are still many thousands that are undecided. Furthermore, although a large number are taking collective action in Britain, there are many who are being enticed to take action in Cyprus. “This could be a fatal decision,” says George Kounis, the lead Consultant on these matters at Maxwell Alves Solicitors in the City of London who are preparing a second wave of claims against Alpha Bank Cyprus and more actions against other banks, property developers, Cyprus lawyers and sales agents. “There are certain ingredients for a successful claim: a valid cause of action and who represents you are essential, but for Cyprus Property matters, the court that hears the case is just as important,” explains Kounis. “We believe there is a case of misselling but whether the finer details of how these people were led into signing will be taken into account by a court in Cyprus remains to be seen. In England, we say, the ‘devil is in the detail’. In Cyprus they say ‘the way to sell is to conceal’ and we are concerned that courts in Cyprus appear to uphold the seller’s right to conceal. This could make the difference between finding justice and facing injustice in court”. www.cyprusreporter.com

“Whether the case is heard in England, therefore or in Cyprus may determine a successful or an unsuccessful outcome” George Kounis continues. “In this respect, advice to file a claim in Cyprus when a UK domiciled consumer has the right of a hearing in England under the EU consumer protection provisions in Brussels I, may be the wrong advice. Another issue is cost and although legal costs in England may be more expensive, by having a collective claim the costs can be slashed because they are shared between claimants. It is not possible to file a collective action in Cyprus. It is only possible to apply to have actions joined together later in the proceedings. The more people that join a collective action in England the lower the costs and in addition, we can afford to hire top QCs to represent our clients as opposed to being represented by a local firm in Cyprus. This means that an individual can take on banks and large property developers and be able to afford the costs and match or outbid them on the quality of representation.” Asked about how to protect the large number of UK consumers who are being sued by the banks in Cyprus, George Kounis has a simple answer: “Do not defend in Cyprus. Challenge the jurisdiction of the Cypriot court instead”. On the Marshall Case (reported in the Cyprus Property News in an article on 09/03/2013 which concluded that following a challenge on the jurisdiction by the Marshalls at the Larnaca District Court, “Judge David ruled that the correct

jurisdiction was … The Republic of Cyprus”), George Kounis commented: “After analysing the judgment, we do not consider Judge David to have made such a ruling. All he said was that in the absence of evidence that they were UK consumers, he could not rule on that at that stage of the proceedings. This is not the same as ruling that the court has jurisdiction. In any event, a Cypriot court is obliged to uphold Brussels I and if it fails to do this, any judgment that the bank tries to register in England may be overturned. The key is how to present the challenge to the court and owners should be well advised on how to do this before taking this step.” There are many questions that people raise: Do I qualify as a UK consumer? I was advised to purchase in the name of a company, do I still qualify? Should I stop making repayments? To answer these and many other questions over the next few weeks, Maxwell Alves are holding on line meetings on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 8 pm (UK time).

Monthly Dogs Appeal

Urgently require addoption please help Over the last two months you have seen some pictures of a few of the dogs that currently reside in our shelter out at Acheleia. We have been lucky enough to home some of the dogs, 35 of them this last month, but we have taken in 36 not including all the puppies we have at the moment. Some of the lucky boys and girls have travelled off to Germany with the help of CYDRA a local group who help with the rehoming and some have gone to the UK. One lucky little fellow was rescued by some tourists staying in a hotel in Polis and bought into Paws. The lady contacted us the next day to say please don’t home him as she had decided to take him to England with her as soon as the formalities had been completed. There are always good news stories but there are a lot of sad ones as well. If you can do anything to help us with the 150 dogs currently in the shelter in anyway we would love to hear from you. Even if it is coming and walking some dogs one day a week or playing ball with them it would be much appreciated by our residents. Initially please contact Sue on email paws-capca@hotmail.co.uk Tel: 99 683 775 or 99 193 147 and we can discuss what YOU can do to help. The rewards of seeing happy, confident dogs being rehomed makes it all worthwhile. Thank you.

Brewster is an older male with a wonderful soft nature. He always has a ball in his mouth. He would love a new retirement home for his later years.

Fundamentals for Structuring Capital Preservation & Income We’re in an eventful time where markets behave like schizophrenics and interest rates are at record lows – again. You read about inflation rates in other countries, like the United Kingdom, but did you know that in Cyprus we are currently running negative inflation rates. When you are considering how to maximise retirement income and capital preservation keep it relevant to where you live! In Cyprus, Special Defence taxes on interest income have gone from 10% in 2011 to 30% currently. The same tax on dividend income remains at 20% as well as the special foreign pension tax rate of 5%. Now we get to add on the revised 2013 immovable property tax rates, payable by every owner of Cyprus property, based on the valuation as at 1 January 1980 with rates starting at 0.6% for the first €40,000 of the property’s value, and rise progressively to 1.9% for the excess of €3,000,000. So what do you do to produce income and preserve capital? Let’s have some fun and compare fundamentals for wealth management and golf. Grip, alignment, focus, target, and tempo--- some major golf fundamentals A round of golf has its ups and downs, hot streaks and bad breaks. Investing has its rallies and corrections, scandals and frauds. Why are these two frustration producers so popular? Surprisingly, or maybe not, it’s more likely a new golfer will seek help with the game’s fundamentals than it is for the new or inexperienced investor to spend time on the basic concepts of investing. Serious amateur golfers work at their game constantly; amateur investors seriously avoid the work required to fine-tune their expectations. Quality, diversification, income, asset allocation, and profit taking--- some major income and capital growth fundamentals Practically speaking, investors need to wrap their heads around an asset allocation formula or strategy that is most likely to get them to a comfortable nineteenth-hole lifestyle. Golfers need to wrap their hands around their clubs in a manner that will help them get to shorter term targets often enough. A properly aligned investment portfolio would be constructed with regular income producers and growth investments with capital gains potential (by the way capital gains are not taxed in Cyprus). Each is viewed differently in terms of time and distance. Golfers attempt to align themselves in a manner that will get them to the safest and most opportune position for the shot that comes next. To be successful at either golf or wealth management requires patience, reasonable expectations, and a mastery of the fundamentals. Ariannol Group focuses on the fundamentals of strategies and structures that meet your needs and objectives.

Young Cyprus Greens clean-up Akrotiri Bay, Limassol

As part of an extensive campaign to clean-up the Mediterranean Sea (‘Clean Up the Med’) introduced by the Italian environmental organization LEGAMBIENTE, the Young Cyprus Greens, in cooperation with the Ecological Movement, continue their beach cleaning efforts. On Saturday, July 27, a clean-up campaign was carried-out in the until recently fenced-off area of Lady’s Mile, Akrotiri Bay, Limassol, in the presence of the Commissioner of Environment, Ms Ioanna Panayiotou.

The southernmost part of the beach at Lady’s Mile, of an approximate stretch of 600 meters, had been fenced-off for the past 30 years. This site contains excellent examples of rare habitats that host equally rare species. One of the most important elements of the area is the nesting activity taking place within the fenced-off area by turtles which had seized to nest on the rest of the Lady’s Mile beach many decades ago as a consequence of this stretch being at the mercy of human brutality. The fenced-off area is also very important for the sand crab, the sand lizard and many plants listed in the Red Data Book of the Flora of Cyprus. According to the Secretary General of the Young Cyprus Greens, Ms Alexia Sakadaki, “the region remains pure and retains its natural beauty just because it was not accessible to the human factor. For the first time, instead of condoms, syringes and broken bottles, we found shells, sand crabs and rare vegetation. The litter that had to be removed was mainly washed ashore. We hope the opening of the beach does not lead to its destruction.” The event was held with the support of OPAP Cyprus, the Cyprus Tourism Organisation and the Cyprus Youth Board.

Bank of Cyprus Depositors Hand Over 47.5% in Bail In-Source

L

arge deposit holders at Bank of Cyprus PCL (BOCY.CP) will see almost half of their deposits turned into equity at the lender as part of the country’s international bailout, a senior bank official said Sunday. After an all day meetings Saturday between President Nicos Anastasiades and representatives from the country’s creditors--its euro-zone partners and the International Monetary Fund--it was decided that 42.5% of all deposits over 100,000 euros ($132,764) will be converted into shares as part of its recapitalisation plan, the official said. Depositors will also have an additional 5% siphoned from their bank accounts and turned into a contingent convertible bonds, also known as Cocos, at the lender, the official added. A formal announcement is expected late Sunday or Monday. Earlier this year, Cyprus’s government agreed to a sweeping overhaul of its banking sector in exchange for a EUR10 billion bailout from its euro-zone peers and the IMF. Under the deal, Cyprus closed its second biggest lender, Cyprus Popular Bank PCL (CPB.CP), and is merging its healthy assets with Bank of Cyprus. Bank of Cyprus, the country’s largest lender, has been stuck in legal limbo since March when the country sealed its rescue agreement. Its activities have been suspended as experts assess what percentage of uninsured deposits--those of more than 100,000 euros--need to be converted to equity in the bank. The delay in reopening the bank has cast doubt on the futures not only of the bank but of the country itself, as it has led to the extension of capital controls in place since March. No other euro-zone country has imposed such controls since the common currency was launched in 2002. Officials had said in March that Bank of Cyprus savers will see at least 37.5% of funds over EUR100,000 turned into shares, and that a further 22.5% will be held until authorities know the exact amount needed to complete its capital boost.

Tommy`s, Not Just Good Food , But A Great Night Out Once upon a time, Neil Hart had a burger van and only the best burgers, the best bacon, the best sausages and the best buns would do. He still had the burger van, but the empire expanded to include Tommy Tucker’s, known and loved throughout Paphos, with exactly the same principles - only the best ingredients will do. Tommy Tucker’s has now grown up to become TOMMY’S PUB AND GRUB, a venue offering all that’s good about food and drink in a real pub setting. Neil knows his – er – onions and he also knows his customers. You can still get the wonderful breakfast rolls, but now you can also have a full meal, at any time of day. Tommy’s has an international menu including authentic and mouth-watering curries, special kebabs, steak pies, fish and chips – and vegetarians get a good look in as well, with a delicious range of dishes. Tommy’s has a full bar licence, with draught and bottled beers, in addition to the usual ‘pub drinks, which can accompany the chock-a-block entertainment going on as well:

Every Monday from July: See the Sensational singer Stevie Dean.. Show starts 8.30pm. Every Tuesday: Jam Night. Paphos` top musicians & singers as they spend their night off having an informal jam. Every Wednesday: Tommy Tuckers Big Cash Bingo Night Early flyer at 7.30, main games start at 8pm Every Thursday: Tommy Tuckers Quiz night. Starts at 7.30 pm. Entry is 2.00 Euros per person, 50% given in prizes, 50% donated to charity. Every Friday: Karaoke Night. With all this going on, you may wonder, what else? Neil has been nominated twice for the Paphos Hearts of Gold award for his charitable efforts. He’s a familiar figure wherever help is needed and the curmudgeonly exterior hides a heart of gold all his own. We wish him much luck and success with his new endeavour, and we’ll be there, with a cold beer, singing along.
