Greek Tied to Cyprus Landfill Scandal

The director of a Greek environmental engineering company was reportedly handed over to Cypriot police after being linked to a landfill scandal on the island.

Theofanis Lolos and the Athens company Enviroplan were said to be involved in a bribery scheme connected to the bidding process for tenders at landfills in Paphos, and Larnaca, which were awarded to a Greek company Helector, the website in-Cyprus.com said.

Lolos had been a special advisor to the Interior Ministry.

Investigators were said to also be looking at claims from Paphos Mayor Fedonas Fedonos after he said he had evidence implicating high-ranking officials to the scandal.
