The Cyprus Consumers' Association calls on the Consumer Protection Service of the Ministry of Energy, Trade and Industry “to assume its responsibilities and realize that its role and purpose is to effectively protect the financial interests of consumers and not any other interests”. .

In a statement, the Cyprus Consumers 'Association states that “unfortunately, the Consumer Protection Service, which is the competent authority for the protection of consumers' financial interests, does not seem to serve the purpose for which it was created”.

He added that “there are strong indications that the protection of consumers' interests takes precedence over any other interests”.

Specifically, the Cyprus Consumers 'Association accuses the Consumer Protection Service that “it submitted a bill to Parliament and managed to pass a law, despite strong reactions from the Consumers' Association, which gave the Director the power to suspend any action against him. that in the future he will stop violating the law “.

Also, with this bill, “the Director was empowered to impose millions of fines, without a mechanism to control his decision in cases where he imposes a gratuitous fine”.

In conclusion, the Cyprus Consumers' Association claims that the Consumer Protection Service is unjustifiably delaying the completion of the investigation of serious and other written complaints of the Association, which should have been completed in two or three months at the latest.
