House Denounces Turkey for Crimes Against Cyprus’ Environment

President of the House of Representatives Yiannakis Omirou has pointed out that one must not forget the ecological destruction in the areas of Cyprus under Turkish occupation, noting that Turkey does not respect the Greek Cypriot properties or cultural and religious heritage, and continues its uncontrolled quarrying, unregulated development, and destruction of the archaeological and religious sites.

Addressing an environmental award ceremony, Omirou said the House deplores Turkey for all these crimes against Cyprus` environment and demands that the international and European communities decisively intervene to put an end to this destruction.
