Savvas Vergas

The Paphos municipal council is set to file another case against former mayor Savvas Vergas, relating to the demarcation of plots in the Kato Pervolia area of Paphos.

According to the Cyprus News Agency, Paphos mayor Phedonas Phedonos said on Tuesday the municipal council received a report from auditor general Odysseas Michaelides saying it is possible that the demarcation process followed by the former mayor needs further investigation.

The case relates to a tennis court built adjacent to the former mayor’s home. The area was originally supposed to be a park but Vergas built the court that is only accessible through his estate.

Municipal council secretary Themis Fillipides will file a report to the police in two days.

The former mayor is currently in jail after he was found guilty of bribery and corruption charges relating to the town’s sewerage construction project.

This is not the only demarcation case the municipality is involved in. Construction company Aristo Developers is currently on trial regarding the demarcation of plots at the Skali area in Paphos. The company is accused of altering blueprints to include an area assigned as greenery.
