Paphos police say they are on top of domestic violence

Domestic Violence Free Zone

Paphos police received eleven complaints about family violence in November, authorities said on Saturday.

According to Paphos police spokesman Michalis Nicolaou, out of the eleven complaints made, police arrested ten people.

He added that all the cases were filed at the Paphos district court, and that in two cases restraining orders were issued.

Nicolaou said that five suspects are still at large, and that there are arrest warrants issued for them.

The unit receives complaints in writing, which are sent to them from various civil service departments.

He said that the cooperation with the social welfare services is vitally important, as well as the cooperation with the hospital, where victims are taken.

“Without the complaints, perpetrators are encouraged and repeat their actions,” he said.
