Honourable Sir,

Re: Perjury Case against Mr George Pittadjis

I am writing to request an update on a case brought before your office. Senior Counsel for the Republic Elena Kleopa is in charge of the case, however I understand that Polina Efthivoulou brought the matter to your personal attention in January.

On the 13th October 2010 Mr George Pittadjis gave false testimony at Larnaca District court, case number 1912/09 with Judge Mrs Stalo Tsivitanidou-Kizi presiding. Mr George Pittadjis clearly committed perjury in an attempt to pervert the course of justice. His false testimony influenced the outcome of the case. The outcome of this case was very important for not only my family but the property industry and the Republics reputation abroad. It concerns whether or not a contract in the land registry secures the buyers rights as the beneficial owner. The case is now set for appeal at the Supreme Court which is why it is vital that Mr George Pittadjis be brought before the courts as soon as possible.

I made my statement at the Police Headquarters on the 24th November 2010 to officer Mr. Nicos Kalassides. I understand other parties were interviewed and the file was handed over to your office before Christmas 2010.

I look forward to hearing from you soon regarding this matter.

Yours Sincerely

Cornelius O’Dwyer
