Municipality 'appalled' by vandalism of fortifications

By KEREM HASAN

Chief Reporter

Council consultant Mücahit Kaya said that he was “appalled” by graffiti daubed on part of the

centuries-old fortifications at one of the “most beautiful walking spots in the region” and a

popular tourist attraction.

“Is this the respect we have for our cultural heritage and history?” Mr Kaya said to Cyprus

Today.

“We have reported the matter to the police and have also contacted the Department of

Antiquities and Museums, because we have to work in coordination with them in order to

clean off the graffiti.”

He said the city walls were 2km long and that council workers carried out two patrols a day to

clear away rubbish such as bottles and plastic, forcing them to put up warning signs about

littering.
