Ministry is destroying some of Cyprus’ best features

Ayia Napa

Is this why this Ministry was created, to stop enjoyment and ruin some of the island’s best features?

Yes laughing gas is a problem, as is some of the loutish behaviour in Ayia Napa and Paphos, but this is taking the proverbial sledgehammer to crack a nut.

If the Minister has his way then vibrant areas like Laiki Geitona in Larnaca will cease to exist. I go there regularly, and at weekends its packed outside with people enjoying themselves having a drink with friends.

Most of the people there are Cypriots, but in summer you get visitors to the island there too. I’ve never seen anyone getting drunk and objectionable, and never seen so much as a punch thrown let alone a fight.
