The Green Party is calling on the Electricity Authority of Cyprus (EAC) to take action after cats were found to have been poisoned at the Vasilikos power plant.
Although the two sides differ over the details – the Greens put the number of poisoned cats at about 50, a conservative figure according to the spokeswoman Eleni Chrysostomou, the EAC puts it at 15 or 20 at most – both confirm the incident.
“There’s really nothing else we can do. We’ve investigated the case but there’s over 300 employees, how are we to know who it is?” EAC spokeswoman Christina Papadopoulou told the Cyprus Mail.
“There’s a canteen and lots of cats are attracted there – obviously because there’s food but people feed them and no one has ever noticed something of the sort, no one has ever complained about the cats there.”
Papadopoulou said the EAC condemned the act and had exerted several efforts to find the person responsible.
This however did not seem to placate the Greens, who said they believe “an organisation like the EAC cannot admit there are criminals among their staff they cannot find so they can be punished for their actions.
“We are now publically asking for a full investigation of this terrible and criminal act and that the guilty persons are found and punished.”
