DISY President Averof Neophytou expressed his concern about the increase in crime due to immigration.

"no Cypriot while migrating abroad, migrated illegally and became a burden in any other society"

The President of DISY stated that immigration is becoming a major national issue and that the Government has rightly set it in its priorities.
 
"Unfortunately, our concerns are confirmed that, in addition to the financial burden that irregular migrants place on the Cypriot economy, they increase crime and endanger public safety with a visible risk of demographic deterioration. In recent days we have witnessed criminal acts. We are concerned about the increase in crime due to immigration as well.  We do not blame anyone because they are of a different religion or ethnicity," he said.

Mr. Neophytou pointed out that "no Cypriot while migrating abroad, migrated illegally and became a burden in any other society".
 
"That is why I stand by the Government to take the right measures, to protect public safety, the demographic character and to crack down on crime from wherever it comes from," he added.
