Road rage leads to beating

POLICE have arrested four men in connection with the beating of a 40-year-old on the Larnaca to Ormidhia motorway on Sunday night.

The 40-year-old told police he had been dragged out of his car and beaten by five people after they had refused to let him overtake them. The incident happened at 10.15 pm.

Police said the suspects intercepted the 40-year-old’s car, dragged him out and beat him. The man went to Paralimni hospital with bruises on parts of his body, police said.

“They dragged me out of the car and punched me continuously,” Theodoros Theodorou said.

He had been beaten before his 14-year-old daughter whose shouts alerted neighbours and forced the suspects to stop.

The four were charged and subsequently released.

He was discharged after receiving first aid.

Using the car registration plates, police identified the drivers and passengers who were subsequently arrested.The four suspects are aged between 17 and 23.

Police yesterday were seeking a fifth suspect.

Bomb explosion in Strovolos

NICOSIA police are investigating an explosion that occurred shortly before 3am yesterday outside a residence in the suburb of Strovolos.

According to Giorgos Krasias, assistant police superintendent for the district of Nicosia, the improvised explosive device had been planted underneath the front section of a car parked outside the owner’s residence.

The blast damaged two cars belonging to the owner. No one was hurt.

Krasias declined to say whether the owner had received any threats, but said that the man had made a statement to police which was being evaluated.

The Church of Cyprus has sought recourse to the European Court of Human Rights for violations perpetrated by Turkey since the 1974 invasion, it was announced yesterday.

The Church accused Turkey of violating its right to property and the freedom to worship at the churches located in the occupied northern part of the island.

The Church also said the Turkish army deprives people of their right to freely visit the places of worship and violates the right to equal treatment.

“It is known that the only reason these rights are violated is because we are Greek Cypriot Christian Orthodox,” a written statement said.

The Church demands unhindered enjoyment and use of its property so that people can freely worship at the religious sites.

It is also asking for its property to be restored to the pre-1974 period where possible.

The Church demands compensation for loss of use of the property since 1974.

European Party deputy chairman Nicos Koutsou who suffered a stroke earlier this month was back on the respirator yesterday following complications.

Koutsou had undergone an operation and was doing better last week with doctors taking him off the respirator.
