Public servants’ union Pasydy on Thursday strongly condemned the bombing of the house of one of its members, a prison warden, on Wednesday morning in Ayios Dhometios, Nicosia.
An improvised highly-powered bomb exploded outside the building at 1.45am, damaging the entrance of the house.
In a statement, the union says this is the eleventh time in the past three years a union member has had their property bombed, with the latest incident being in June when a car was set on fire.
“At the same time, our organisation asks the authorities to urgently investigate and locate the perpetrators, and awaits the prosecution of the bombers and the imposition of exemplary sentences for these unacceptable actions, which once again aim at intimidating public officials responsible for the preservation of justice and the maintenance of public order,” Pasydy’s statement said.
The union assured its members that “it remains a vigilant guardian of their rights and the union’s priority is that conditions are smooth and effective for their work to be carried out efficiently and without fail.”
“Pasydy considers any criminal acts of this kind unacceptable and condemnable and requires the government to proceed with all necessary measures to prevent and put a stop to these antisocial phenomena,” the statement said.
