House security under the spotlight

Yiannakis Omirou

JUSTICE Minister Ionas Nicolaou handed in a report on Wednesday to House President Yiannakis Omirou making suggestions on how safety measures could be increased at the parliament.

Nicolaou suggested that the duties of police officers the House be redistributed and that more checks were needed on employees and visitors to the building.

Strong room security should also be increased, according to Nicolaou. This is a secure room where secret parliament documents and records are kept.

Circumstances that have in the past allowed protestors to violently break into parliament meetings should not be repeated, he said. Since Cyprus received a bailout of its economy, protests at the House have increased. In some instances protesters have been able to enter the building despite the presence of police.
