Personal guards of political persons to police Old Nicosia

The 21 personal guards, who will be moved from the guards of political persons, will be used for policing Old Nicosia, according to a decision of the Ministerial Council.

In a statement after the meeting, Justice Minister Emily Yiolites said that the said members will guard the center of Nicosia so that the presence of the Police will be more felt in those areas.

The Minister referred to the guard of the President, noting that it will be evaluated but added that the guard is already burdened with the security of the Presidential Palace, of the summer house in Troodos, and of the President’s private residence.

She also said that from now on requests for part time employment by members of the Force in other services outside the Police, will not be accepted.
