Concern and indignation at PASP – “End to tolerance…”

Must read

 Προβληματι&sigma ;μoς και αγανακτηση στον ΠΑΣΠ – «&Tau ;eλος στην ανοχor...»

With its announcement, PASP refers to the events that took place in game Nea Salamina-APOEL and in the match Omonia 29M-Anorthosis.

The announcement:

«End in patience gentlemen…

Intense reflection and indignation, more than any other time, prevails in the board of directors of PA.S.P. since attacks against football players during matches continue and create more insecurity for the protagonists of the sport. The highlight of the latest unacceptable incidents was the injury of Giorgos Papageorgiou in the Nea Salamina – APOEL match, which also caused the match to be stopped. The firecracker that fell next to the football player, while he was warming up, resulted in his transfer to the hospital. According to the medical opinion, the unfortunate footballer suffered hearing loss in the right ear. Fortunately, we did not have the same results in the Omonia match on May 29 – Anorthosis, where a flare fell on the pitch during the match. Gentlemen, the situation has reached an impasse. We can no longer operate on wishful thinking and actions are needed.

The matter was discussed last night by the board of directors of PA.S.P. and various views were put on the table, which are under study. Tomorrow's scheduled meeting with KOP (11:30) becomes even more urgent after the latest events. The board of directors of PA.S.P. he will present his suggestions to the KOP leadership and we will discuss together ways for Cypriot football to get out of the impasse it has fallen into. Note that in this context, PA.S.P. had a meeting yesterday with the police force branch of the “Equality” guild, during which measures and proposals to deal with the phenomena of violence were discussed.

We remind you that we are waiting for the appointment of a meeting with the Minister of Justice Marios Hartsiotis and the Chief of Police Stelios Papatheodorou.

It goes without saying that the responsibility for the suppression of violence lies with the state and finally political will is needed for the solution of the problem. As PA.S.P. but we will not stand idly by. We cannot wait for the next attack on a football player to react. We cannot wait for our next member injury to take action. We cannot wait for the next injury that may even cause death. No, gentlemen, we are not far from that scenario. We also passed the zero point. Once again we call on the state to assume its responsibilities and crack down on hooliganism. These few who are in the stands and proceed with illegal acts, leave the state and its principles exposed, as well as the sane fans. That's enough, gentlemen. Do actions…”.
