Police raid on peace movement nets one gramme of cannabis

A strong police force spearheaded by the anti-terrorist squad last night raided a building on Nicosia’s Ledra Street -- occupied by a multi-communal peace movement -- arresting at least two people for possession of one gramme of cannabis.

Two people injured during the raid were taken to hospital but were later discharged.

“The operation was conducted in the presence of two individuals – a Greek Cypriot and a Turkish Cypriot – who were arrested for illegal possession and use of a controlled drug,” a police spokesman said.

Police said the two had resisted arrest and attacked the officers.

The occupants of the building said it was the police who “used violence against peaceful protestors.”

Witnesses said the officers who entered the building at around 10.15 pm had been armed.

People having dinner at a nearby restaurant heard glass breaking and screaming as police entered the building, which belongs to the Church.

It is located just after the Republic’s police checkpoint on the Ledra Street crossing that links the island’s Greek and Turkish Cypriot communities.

It had been occupied by members – mostly youths -- of a multi-communal group known as the Occupy Buffer Zone Movement who are demanding the demilitarisation and reunification of the island.

“People gathered in solidarity and the police used violence again to disperse them arresting two more protestors,” the movement said in a written statement.

The group pledged to fight on.

“We are determined to continue our protest for peace and reunification of our island and call for the support of the people of Cyprus and the global occupy movement.”

The movement has been occupying the area since November 2011.
