Supreme President of Cyprus Federation of America arrested in US

I know that there has been reported to be a lot of corruption involved in the construction industry throughout Cyprus and that some say it is part of the Cypriot heritage to exploit certain opportunities. The Cyprus Mail seems to confirm that such ideals are alive in some Cypriots even though they have moved away from Cyprus.

“Contractor Panayiotis “Peter” Papanicolaou, 50, has been charged with bribing a Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) official by paying for his $12,000 (€9,600) honeymoon.” [Cyprus Mail]

It turns out that Mr Papanicolaou is the Supreme President of the Cyprus Federation of America and this is the message on his organisation’s website:

“In my role as President of The Cyprus Federation of America, I am honored to be a part of an institution such as this. We are proud of the fact that we have over 25 chapter members throughout the United States that work closely to promote our Cypriot heritage, culture and Hellenic ideals.” [CFA]
