COM preparing to take harder measures on serious incidents
A special report in KIBRIS POSTASI newspaper today looks at the decisions being prepared by the Council of Ministers.

PM Kalyoncu who spoke to the paper said that the COM had convened to discuss issues such as the shootings in Famagusta last week and what measures they were planning on taking when incidents such as these came to light.

The PM told the paper that the council had discussed measures as hard as deportation; Kalyoncu noted that incidents like these were on the rise and as the government they would not stand witness to it without taking precautions.

Kalyoncu said that he had consulted with police and the attorney general’s office to see what the gaps in the laws were with regards to incidents such as these so that action can be taken to overcome them. He noted that the COM would be convening again next week and this matter would be delved into further.

KIBRIS POSTASI sources have said that the PM is more in favour of deporting those involved in incidents such as the ones in Famagusta but laws prevent TRNC citizens from being deported.
