The future of the 150 unaccompanied children who must leave the Pournara First Reception Center immediately, following a presidential decision, remains uncertain to recall, and be transferred to other places to be determined by the state. As reported by politis. com. cy , the transfer of minors to Paphos, as announced, should in no case be taken for granted, as the Government is still trying to find solutions. At the same time, the protests of the young immigrants about their living conditions continue to the point that two children have warned that they will end their lives.
Paphos follows the practices of free Famagusta
The Ministry of Welfare on Tuesday, March 22, with a relevant announcement, informed about the refusal of the owner of the accommodation in free Famagusta to sign the text of the agreement, which they had reached. Instead, it became known that the children would eventually be transferred to Paphos, following a relevant agreement with a property. According to well-informed sources of politis. com. cy , this new endeavor stumbles upon new obstacles, which the owner of the accommodation in Paphos puts. The same sources state that the agreement was reached with the manager of the accommodation and now the objections are coming from the owner. This results in a further delay in resolving this very important issue, which is the biggest bet that the competent state ministry has to face at this time.
Minors are at their limits strong>
In the meantime all this delay has brought unaccompanied minors to their limits. In the last few days, another 14 minors have arrived in the center of Nicosia, outside the Hope for Children, and despite the efforts of the authorities to persuade them to return to Pournara, they are determined to stay there, even setting up tents on the street./p>
In another development, speaking Thursday morning on Politis 107.6 & amp; 97.6 , the MP of the Movement of Ecologists, Ms. Alexandra Attalidou made a revelation about one of the children who was in the area, who tried to end his life and after his intentions were thwarted, it was deemed necessary to transfer him to Athalassa Hospital for treatment and monitoring his mental health. Other sources make it clear that the child did not attempt suicide, but that he did not intend to join the Hope For Children. At the moment, however, there are two minor immigrants in the Athalassa Hospital, since, as we are informed, a child was transferred there, who showed similar intentions in Pournara, since he could no longer stand the environment in which he lives.
Attalidou requests the intervention of the Attorney General for Pyrilli
In her intervention on the citizen's radio on Thursday morning, Alexandra Attalidou, commenting on the statements of the Mayor of Paralimni, Mr. Theodoros Pyrillis, who argued that refugees and immigrants should not be on the front line because tourists will be “disturbed” and will leave Cyprus, asked the Attorney General of the Republic Mr. George Savvidis to intervene, since, as he said, it is for practicing hate speech. At the same time, he wondered who ultimately governs the place, saying that there is a problem with people who can not be lifted to the height of the circumstances. He acknowledged, however, that there is an issue with migratory flows on the island, which the government has to resolve and as long as these people remain in Cyprus they should be treated as human beings.
