Thank you for the responses on and off-list.
I found additional info at
* National Lisbon Programme of the Republic of Cyprus
   <http://www.mcit.gov.cy/mcit/mcit.nsf/All/2EED5703C1102457C22570C70038C0EA/$file/LISBON%20STRATEGY%20TEXT%20FINAL.doc>
and
* the MeAC country profiles:
   <http://www.eaccessibility-progress.eu/country-profiles/>.

Cyprus does not seem to have legislation regarding accessibility of 
websites (unless something changed very recently).

Best regards,

Christophe
