Cyprus Mail

Setting the record straight

I refer to a report in the Sunday Mail edition of May 15, 2016 which references my name in an unfavourable light, and would like to set the record straight for the benefit of your readers:

On May 11, 2016 a Nicosia court charged Constantinos Christofides, Rector of the University of Cyprus, for assaulting me on January 13, 2014.
I espouse neither the policies nor the practices of any party. On the contrary, it is others who are using their party connections to cause me harm.

From the moment I revealed that a certain company director and shareholder who is at the same time employed at the University of Cyprus, making use of university facilities for the benefit of his company, the Rector Mr. Constantinos Christofides has been seeking to end my career and to eliminate me physically.

It was Mr. Christofides who spearheaded efforts to have me suspended, in an illegal and inhumane fashion, and based on false and trumped-up accusations, on May 15, 2015.

On July 23, 2015 the Supreme Court reversed the illegal suspension. The police determined that the Rector’s accusations did not correspond to reality, and that I had done nothing untoward.

Since the day the court charged Mr. Christofides with assaulting me, he has been trying to justify himself by citing non-existent announcements supposedly issued by the University’s Council.
