Among many other, many wealthy Chinese and Arabs have bought Cypriot passports in an attempt to escape the restrictive regimes of their home countries, Al Jazeera's Investigative Unit has found.

The Cyprus government has held a news conference in which it refuted the findings of the investigation, calling it "propaganda".
