Cyprus on Wednesday said it had initiated a process to strip 26 individuals of citizenship after other news outlets on the identity of beneficiaries, including Cambodian elite and a Malaysian fugitive from justice.

On October revealed that wealthy relatives and allies of Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen received Cypriot passports under a secretive passports for investments scheme.

Authorities in Cyprus launched a probe after the report. Interior Minister Constantinos Petrides did not disclose the nationalities or identities of the individuals concerned.
