Police investigate arson outside BoC chief’s home (update 2)

Police were on Tuesday investigating an arson attack on a car parked outside the home of Bank of Cyprus CEO John Hourican in Nicosia.
Hourican is abroad at the moment.
The 3.10am fire destroyed the vehicle that belongs to the Bank of Cyprus that is meant to be used by anyone when necessary, a bank source said.
“It appears that the vehicle is used by Mr. Hourican’s driver and his family whenever they are in Cyprus. The car was parked at the location for days,” Nicosia police chief Demetris Demetriou said.
The blaze also damaged a neighbour’s car.
The Cyprus Mail was told that there have not been any threats against the bank or any of its officials in recent days.
Justice minister Ionas Nicolaou said the arsonists shouldn’t feel safe.
“These kind of threats will not be tolerated,” stressed Nicolaou.
