Chrysanthos resigned last November and was suspended from any religious duties for two years by the Holy Synod, after the Church accused him of a string of misdemeanours, including greed, and profiteering through currency speculation.
He had no option but to stand down before the Church instigated defrocking proceedings against him for damaging its good name.

Wednesday, June 16,  Man held after teen stepdaughter alleges rape By Charlie Charalambous A British man who allegedly raped his year-old stepdaughter and forced her into prostitution was yesterday remanded in police custody for eight days. The natural mother of the British teenager was also remanded, for two days, by a Limassol district court on suspicion of physically abusing her daughter and causing grievous bodily harm.
Police said the couple were arrested after the young girl filed a complaint against them. She accused the stepfather, 52, of raping her and forcing her into prostitution over a three-year period from The family moved from England in to set up home in Limassol. A police source confirmed yesterday that an investigation involving rape and forced prostitution of a minor in Cyprus and the UK was under way.

Names have been withheld by police for legal reasons. The Republic today is asking the Belgian government to clarify what food products it has found to be dioxin-tainted, so Cyprus can destroy those items that are, and release for sale those suspect foods that have been pulled from store shelves, a government official said yesterday.
The Health Ministry has listed food products and four types of animal feeds that are suspected of dioxin poisoning, and ordered them removed from sale. Merchants failing to withdraw the banned items face their confiscation and fines The decision to query Belgium followed a meeting on the dioxin scare yesterday of the Special Technical Committee, which included representatives of several ministries and departments. The Belgian government at the weekend also declared its milk products were "up to EU standard.
The fat "was supplied to a limited number of foreign companies The dioxin crisis centres on the Verkest fats and oils company, of Ghent, Belgium, which supplied dioxin-tainted fats to animal feed producers in Belgium, Holland and France. Those companies supplied feed to poultry, pig and cattle farms in their own countries, Germany and Spain between what the Belgian government now says was only January 19 and January 31 earlier this month it said the critical dates were January 15 to June 1.
The contamination prompted the European Union to ban the sale or transfer of Belgian-produced animal feeds, raw food and processed food products. Many European, Asian and African countries and the United States banned the import of various raw and processed foods from Belgium and other affected EU countries.
Cyprus followed the EU ban on the sale of all Belgian eggs or egg products; all live chickens, cattle and pigs, dressed poultry, beef and pork, and meat products made from them; powdered milk and baby food containing milk; butter, cheeses, other dairy products; chocolates, mayonnaise and sauces. The Republic has impounded tons of food products and animal feeds from Belgium in the island's ports, and also ordered food stores to remove from their shelves all Belgian food products with January June 1 production dates, and to hold them, pending testing, for possible destruction.
If Belgian officials declare specific products dioxin-tainted, or are unable to say one way or another, those products will be destroyed, Orphanides said. Otherwise, they will be put back into circulation for sale in stores, he added. Orphanides said the government does "not know yet" how it will destroy any dioxin-tainted items. He acknowledged Cyprus lacked facilities safely to destroy dioxins, conceding that burning them would pollute the air with the cancer-causing toxin, and dumping would ultimately poison ground-water.
The special technical committee is awaiting "further information" from overseas before deciding how to destroy dioxin-tainted foods, Orphanides said, adding the quantity of suspect food ordered pulled from Cyprus shelves was "not very big. Its half-life of 12 years lets it build up in the body and pass down to human offspring, causing grotesque birth deformities. Children are especially vulnerable, as dioxin is transmitted in human breast milk and cow's milk.
The company, bottlers of Coca Cola, said all the Coke sold in Cyprus was produced on the island and none used any raw materials from Belgium to manufacture the soft drink. The Lanitis statement came as the Belgian government ordered the recall of some 15 million cans of Coca Cola from Belgian stores after about people complained of headaches and stomach ailments after drinking it.
The Coke scare compounded the crisis of confidence in Belgian foods, sparked by revelations that an animal feed producer contaminated Belgium's food chain with dioxin, a cancer-causing toxin, and one of the most deadly of man-made substances. Wednesday, June 16,  Eurobond issue successfully launched CYPRUS announced yesterday it had successfully launched a million euro bond issue in a move it said reflected the international trust in the island's economy.
The seven-year international bond, the island's third since , was issued last Thursday and was underwritten by Merrill Lynch and Warburg Dillon Read, according to a Central Bank statement. It has a coupon of five per cent and yielded 5. One of six countries on a fast track to join the European Union, Cyprus has chosen to borrow abroad to avoid putting pressure on local interest rates and squeeze the domestic credit market.
The government is forced to borrow to finance a fiscal deficit forecast to grow to 5. The deficit is particularly worrying because of the island's ambition to qualify for the European single currency simultaneously with its EU accession, which is not expected before A maximum fiscal deficit of three per cent of GDP is one of the key criteria for joining the single currency and Finance Minister Takis Clerides said a package of taxation under discussion now with political parties would reduce the deficit to two per cent of GDP by
