Nicosia, May 3 (CNA) - Solon Nikitas has handed in his resignation to Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos today from the position of Attorney General.

Government Spokesman Kypros Chrysostomides confirmed Nikitas' resignation in statements to CNA.

In a written statement last week, Nikitas said there was no point in continuing to be Attorney General, after the High Court acquitted former Minister of Health Constantina Akkelidou, who had been convicted by the Nicosia District Court after being found guilty for interfering with the course of justice.
