In today’s episode, we hear that in an apparent jurisdictional spat, a British Bases court has rejected Cypriot authorities’ request that they put on trial two suspects arrested in the summer – after Sovereign Base Areas police and officers of Cyprus’ drug squad Ykan seized about 18kg of cocaine hidden in a fruit container.

Elsewhere, a fifth Covid vaccine dose could be available by the end of October, while the cabinet just under two weeks ago approved the new bivalent jabs for fourth shots.

There’s also condemnation from the Animal Party after what it described as unprovoked attack on two activists, a man and a woman, who were staging a protest against animal cruelty on Ledra Street
