Owner alerts police about house burglary while watching live remotely

November 9th, 2017|Latest News|Comments Off on Owner alerts police about house burglary while watching live remotely

A house owner who alerted Cypriot police about the presence of two burglars at his residence did so from thousands of kilometers away, a police spokesman said on Tuesday.

He said the burglars entered the house of a Russian man in the western city of Paphos on Monday night when he was abroad.

But the alarm system notified him about the break in and he watched in real time as the burglars ransacked his home.

“We received a telephone call from the house owner, who was abroad, telling us two people were stealing things from his house. We immediately dispatched a patrol car to the area,” the police spokesman said.

The burglars saw the police approaching and jumped over the fence, trying to hide in nearby underground tombs of an ancient necropolis that contain hundreds of burial chambers cut in the rock.

But the police gave chase on foot and managed to apprehend them.

The suspects, two men from Georgia who had been in Cyprus illegally, were remanded in custody by a court on Tuesday, pending further investigations.

The local Paphos Police said they suspected them of having been involved in similar style burglaries of uninhabited houses in tourist areas.

Cyprus says president’s Paris visit “turning point” in relations with France

November 9th, 2017|Latest News|Comments Off on Cyprus says president’s Paris visit “turning point” in relations with France

The visit by Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades to Paris and his talks with French President Emmanuel Macron on Monday has proved to be a turning point in relations between the two countries, government spokesman Nicos Christodoulides has said.

Christodoulides singled out the issues of energy and defense, as well as France’s support for the re-launching of the Cyprus reunification negotiations once the Cypriot government makes a request.

Christodoulides said it was particularly important that Macron said that the French government was behind energy giant Total, which is scheduled to start drilling in a block in the Cypriot exclusive offshore economic zone early in 2018.

Anastasiades said in an interview published in the French daily Le Figaro on Tuesday that Total would move ahead with plans to drill in Block 6.

Italian Eni was awarded the right in December 2016 to be operator of Block 6 with a 50-percent stake in partnership with Total.

Christodoulides also said the French navy was interested in making more use of naval facilities in Cyprus, once the Mari naval base on the south coast of Cyprus was upgraded.

He added that the Cypriot government was planning big improvements of the port facilities there.

Cyprus expects int’l community, UN to work for resumption of talks

November 9th, 2017|Latest News|Comments Off on Cyprus expects int’l community, UN to work for resumption of talks

Cyprus expects the international community and the United Nations (UN) to work towards the resumption of the Cyprus peace talks, deputy government spokesman Victoras Papadopoulos said last night.

“This is what the government wishes for, because it wants to end Turkey’s occupation of the island’s northern areas and its consequences,” he added.

Papadopoulos added that there should be adequate preparation before the new talks to avoid the failures of the past.

The latest effort to end the 43-year-long partition of Cyprus at a July conference in Switzerland in the presence of the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres ended in failure when Greek and Turkish sides failed to agree on security arrangements after a solution.

Each side blamed the other for the failure.
