Congratulations for exposing cemetery tax

letter cemetry 1205928

Congratulations to Mr Andreas Gregoriades for at last exposing this cemetery tax which according to his lawyer is not a tax but a levy which Oroklini council has imposed to purchase land for a cemetery (Court decision opens Pandora’s box on cemetery tax, Cyprus Mail, March 18).

Like Mr Gregoriades, we have already made private arrangements. In our case it is for cremation, so why do we have to pay Kouklia council a cemetery tax when we will not require burial plots?

It would be good to think that the promised crematorium would materialise before our need to pollute the atmosphere by bodies having to be flown long distances.

Julia Hope,
