Police on Sunday issued four arrest warrants after attacks against officers by customers of a Limassol bar who were asked to present a SafePass.

The incident took place on Saturday evening when police officers went to a Limassol bar to check if customers there had a SafePass. The officers found around 200 people outside the bar, most of them not sitting at the tables or social distancing. Some of them were dancing outside, on the pavement where tables had been placed.

When the officers started asking people to present their SafePass, they were heckled. Some of the people there started pushing the officers, asking them to leave.

One person threw a glass at the patrol car, smashing a window.

Police said they issued four arrest warrants so far, while more could follow.

The bar’s owner was fined for violation of the law on infectious diseases, among other things.
