Cyprus President to Seek Removal of Central Bank Chief Over Perceived Conflict of Interest

Cyprus' president says he will seek to have the bailed-out country's embattled Central Bank chief removed from her post over a perceived conflict of interest. President Nicos Anastasiades met late Sunday with Central Bank Governor Chrystalla Georghadji to contain the damage from a debacle that also threatens to erode his personal credibility as he tries to nurse the country back to financial health. Anastasiades appointed Georghadji a year ago following her predecessor's resignation after the Cypriot president accused him of botching the country's bailout negotiations with international creditors a year earlier.
