Edek vowed that it will not kneel before the political underworld as it condemned an attack by arsonists on its office building in Tsiakkilero, Larnaca.

“Behind the cowardly act, there are political motives, as in the arson of the party’s headquarters,” the party said, referring to a previous attack.

The fire services arrived at the scene but announced afterwards that the building was destroyed despite their efforts.

They said the attack happened at about 6am on Saturday.
