Britisk kvinne pågrepet for falsk voldtektsanmeldelse på Kypros

Politiet i feriebyen Paralimni, like ved Aiya Napa på Kypros, har arrestert en 19 år gammel kvinne fra Storbritannia for å ha levert en falsk voldtektsanmeldelse mot tolv unge menn, alle israelske statsborgere, skriver Reuters.
Alle tolv er nå løslatt etter å ha vært varetektsfengslet siden midten av juli. De tolv, alle i slutten av tenårene, er vernepliktige soldater som var på Kypros for en siste ferietur før de skulle inn i forsvaret.

Mennene hevdet hele tiden sin uskyld, og at anmeldelsen fra kvinnen om at hun var blitt gjengvoldtatt, var oppspinn.

This specific type of lion is known as the lion of St.Mark and is the symbol of the city of Venice, Italy. The lion is also one of the four beasts, along with the eagle, the ox, and the winged man (or angel), that symbolize the four evangelists – Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
According to the Venetian tradition when St.Mark arrived in Venice an angel appeared to him saying: “Pax tibi Marce, evangelista meus” – May peace be with you, Mark, my evangelist.
The lion expresses the power of the Evangelist’s word and is itself a symbol of power and majesty. It’s wings are an allegory of spiritual elevation and the book summarizes the concepts of wisdom, peace and the state – or city, in Larnaka’s case, sovereignty.

The monument was offered to Larnaka city by Venice Municipality in memory of the Adriatic twinning of the two cities.
The unveiling took place on October 2nd 2011.

Cyprus fines American, Norwegian men for illegal shipwreck search

A Cypriot court has fined a U.S. national and a Norwegian man 6,000 euros ($6,730) each for illegally searching for an old shipwreck off the coast of the island, the AP news agency and international and local media reported Friday.

Authorities received a tip in February that the two men were looking for the shipwreck aboard a research vessel, according to a court official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not allowed to disclose details of the case publicly.

The 36-year-old American and 44-year-old Norwegian were convicted in February on two charges of conspiracy to commit a misdemeanour and attempting to illegally search for antiquities without formal authorization.

Cyprus has a seafaring tradition going back thousands of years. Wrecks discovered off its coast are dated as far back as the 5th century B.C.

Sri Lanka opens consulate in Nicosia

Nicosia

Cyprus Foreign Minister Nikos Christodoulides and his Sri Lankan counterpart Tilak Janaka Marapana said while inaugurating Sri Lanka’s consulate general in Nicosia, capital city of Cyprus, that the two countries were opening a new chapter in their bilateral cooperation, the Cyprus-Mail website reported.

“After the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries in 1963, our relations are growing steadily,” Christodoulides said in his address at the ceremony.

The two foreign ministers discussed ways of enhancing cooperation in the trade, tourism, investment and education sectors.

Mr Christodoulides said, “we share many similar ideas and principles which guide our close cooperation in many international organisations and associations, such as the UN and the Commonwealth.”

He went on to say that the presence of the Sri Lankan community on the island had also contributed to the strengthening of the ties between the two countries.

At the beginning of the ceremony, Sri Lanka’s flag was raised outside the consular premises and the national anthems of the two countries were played.

The foreign ministers also unveiled the Consulate’s plaque and lit a traditional candelabra. A Sri Lankan couple in traditional attire presented folk dances before guests.
The ceremony was also attended by Daya Srikantha John Pelpola, the ambassador of Sri Lanka to Cyprus, resident in Rome.

Leon was the product of the first brewery in Cyprus, founded in 1937. The production of Leon was suspended in 1962 because the brewery acquired the license to produce Carlsberg locally, which began in 1969.

In 2003, Photos Photiades Brewery re-launched Leon based on the original recipe used in 1937. It is an All Malt beer because only malt, hops and yeast are used in its production.

Until the arrival of KEO in 1951, Leon was the only locally produced beer in Cyprus.
