Former Cyprus Prime Minister Ersan Saner speaks out on graphic video

According to Cyprus Mail, Ersan Saner explained in a written statement that although there had been rumours circulating that something negative would happen, he didn’t think his enemies would harm his office, his family, and his party.

He reportedly stated:

“I was the target of very bad defamation with this video, which is a product of processing with the maximum use of technology. It is clear that someone wants to prevent me from serving my beloved country, my party, but they do this not through political means but through open attacks. There is a conspiracy designed entirely for this purpose.”
