Greens in golf protest

THE GREENS staged a protest on Sunday at Kato Paphos harbour as part of the world action day against golf courses.

Paphos was the obvious location of choice for the demonstration as it hosts three golf courses with four more at the planning stage.

According to Green Party leader George Perdikis, a total of 14 golf courses are on the cards for the island.

“The natural and scarce resource of water is wasted on hundreds of hectares of grass and for irrigating thousands of luxury mansions,” the Greens said in an announcement.

“Golf courses are built so that mansions can be sold,” they went on, adding that it is a “myth” that golf courses benefit tourism.

They called upon the government to stop procedures for handing out new golf course building licences and to limit the water supplied to the existing courses and facilities.

Men attack police at hospital

POLICE arrested and charged two young men on Sunday for attacking police officers and causing physical injury to one.

Charges of disturbing the peace and abusing in public were also levied against the men.

At 6.15am the two men, 22 and 24, arrived at the First Aid department at the Nicosia General Hospital to visit a female friend who had been involved in a road accident in Strovolos earlier.

The young men were not allowed to enter and reacted by shouting abuse at hospital staff.

In their attempt to pacify the men, two police officers were attacked by the men.
One of the officers suffered bodily harm.

The woman had only suffered light injuries from the crash.

Burned pizza

A PIZZA Express restaurant in Limassol was utterly destroyed by fire at dawn on Sunday, with police considering all possibilities as to the cause of the fire.

The immediate reaction by five Fire Service trucks proved to be futile in salvaging the restaurant, but was crucial in preventing the blaze from spreading.

“When the fire trucks had arrived on the scene, the whole restaurant was ablaze and the roof was ready to collapse,” said Limassol Fire Service official, George Makariou.
The restaurant, which is located in the Yermasogia tourist area, had been operating for the past few months.

Limassol Police Chief Tasos Economides told reporters that the first findings indicate that the fire had started from inside the pizzeria.

“You could argue that it was arson, but we have to take into consideration that fridges and other electrical appliances inside the restaurant were working at the time,” he said.

The contents of the restaurant as well as the building itself were insured.

It is considered that because of the totality of the damage, it will be impossible to ascertain with confidence the cause of the fire, be it accident or arson.
