Akel is not worried about a potential libel suit launched by far-right group Elam which claims a series of slanderous statements were made by the opposition party.
General Secretary of Akel Andros Kyprianou said yesterday the National People’s Front (Elam) was jumping to conclusions as he never said its members were involved in the military style training of fascists on the island.
“In all the statements I made following my meeting with the Justice Minister I never once made reference to any names or Elam,” said Kyprianou.
He added that left-wing Akel was awaiting the final conclusions of the police investigation, which he reminded is still in progress.
“I am well aware of what Elam is and I am not at all concerned by this lawsuit.”
