Which witchcraft is illegal in Cyprus?
I have been moved to write to you after my husband and I witnessed a horrific incident a few weeks ago. It has been preying on my mind ever since and especially in the light of the ridiculous arrest of poor Wilf Truscott.
About 7am on Sunday morning, we were taking our usual walk around Peyia village. As we turned into the little churchyard of Panayias Zalakiotissas this shocking sight met our eyes: a Cypriot man had just begun what we believed to be the slaughter of a goat (with nothing sharper than a knife you would use to butter bread)!
The blood had just started to flow and the man was busy making the sign of the cross with it on the foreheads of another couple standing by, his own forehead and the goat’s while the poor beast rolled its eyes heavenwards. The man even said ‘Kalimera’ as we passed.
I understand that Wilf Truscott, who has all the necessary licences and permits for his business, is being charged under the suspicion of practising witchcraft. I have never met Mr Truscott but I have heard that he is an excellent clairvoyant and I am sure he has given great comfort and hope to many people with his gift. By the way, the Oxford English Dictionary defines clairvoyance as “exceptional insight”.
I would also like to point out that in civilised countries, the ritual slaughter of animals in churchyards is immediately and most definitely associated with black witchcraft and devil worship. Whilst you would not be prosecuted for such beliefs, as they are your own business, you would certainly be charged with cruelty to animals with the full force of the law.
One wonders whether Mr Truscott is to be strapped to a ducking stool or burned at the stake under the Cypriot justice system?
While he waits to hear, perhaps he could locate the man with the goat and find out how witchcraft is really done!
