Club owners outraged over illegal competition

Club owners have complained about a discrepancy between legislation allowing for smoking inside the casino set to be built in Limassol but not inside clubs

Owners of private entertainment clubs’ association (Pasyka) on Monday said they were considering taking legal action against the state over allegations that several of their competitors are operate without licences yet go unpunished.

In a press conference, Pasyka’s general secretary Fanos Levendis said discussions so far had reaped no results and the state was breaking the law by allowing entertainment clubs to operate without having a licence.

“We need to take all possible measures which we can use against the state and any other authority which is involved in the operation of entertainment clubs,” he told reporters.

Levendis also remarked there was a discrepancy between legislation allowing for smoking inside the casino set to be built in Limassol but not inside clubs, saying this was unfair treatment.

He added the legislation surrounding music was also a mess, something Ayia Napa mayor Yiannis Karousos had previously complained about citing gaps in legislation passed by parliament on noise pollution which allows club owners to get away with blasting music as loud as they want.
