Cyprus:Skali residents warn of casualties due to rockslides
Residents of the Aglandjia area of Nicosia on Thursday accused authorities of apathy to their plight — rockslides — and warned of possible casualties in the future unless the government changes its tune.
According to the mayor, the Ministry of the Interior has green-lit €500,000 for clearing debris from landslides, but only on state-owned land in the area. The ministry did not approve any funds for clearing debris on private-owned land.
A 2017 study found that restoration works — both on state and private lands — would cost €1.82 million.
