Contracts to restore Apostolos Andreas to be signed soon

Contracts to begin construction work on restoring the Apostolos Andreas monastery in the north will be signed soon, MPs heard on Wednesday.

Bids submitted for the project are currently being assessed, Chairwoman of the House Refugees Committee Skevi Koukouma said.

She said the Bishop of Karpasia Christoforos had informed the committee they would soon be signed.

“We express our satisfaction with the work being done and we hope that restoration work will begin the soonest,” she said.

The Greek Orthodox monastery, on the eastern tip of the Karpas peninsula, is in urgent need of repair. Past efforts to agree on restoration by all interested parties had failed. (CNA)
