An ad hoc committee is to be set up by the House of Representatives to monitor investigations regarding last week’s deadly blast at the Naval Base ''Evaggelos Florakis'' which resulted in the death of 13 people.

Leaders and representatives of the parliamentary parties who met at the House of Representatives on Thursday adopted a proposal submitted by European Party (EVROKO) leader, Mr. Demetris Syllouris, to set up an ad hoc committee to monitor investigation procedures which are to be carried out by the one member commission of inquiry into the circumstances that led to the deadly blast.

The meeting, which was convened by House President Yiannakis Omirou, was also attended by Attorney General Petros Klerides.

In statements after the meeting Mr. Omirou said that the composition of the committee will be announced at a later stage.
