Windows were damaged at the Paphos district court after stones were thrown at them by a member of the public, police said on Thursday.

The damage was noticed on Thursday morning when court officials arrived for work, noting that two windows at the entrance of the old courthouse had been shattered.

Paphos police chief Michalis Nikolaou said police are examining CCTV footage of the area and asking witnesses to come forward to identify the stone-thrower.

He added that the Paphos welfare office, the citizens’ service centre, and the district labour office had all had stones thrown at them in recent days.

Police have already arrested a 29-year-old man in relation to those attacks. He was released on Wednesday, after being charged.
