    Cyprus - Allegations - James Woolsey

    Nicosia, Sep 19 (CNA) -- The government of the Republic of Cyprus expressed today "great surprise and concern" over allegations made by former CIA Chief James Woolsey who, talking about Osama bin Laden's finances, said that Cyprus is the worst tax haven and should not be allowed to join the European Union until it hands over information on bin Laden's financial activities.

    The government refuted categorically these allegations in the strongest possible way, pointing out that the Financial Action Task Force said in its report for 2000 that "Cyprus has a comprehensive anti-money laundering system" and was given a clean bill of health when it comes to measures to combat money laundering.
