The remains of Labor Minister Zeta Emilianidou, who died in a hospital in Athens on Monday after suffering a cerebral aneurysm last month, will arrive in Cyprus on Wednesday afternoon.
On Tuesday, Health Minister Michael Hadjipantela traveled to the Greek capital to arrange the details for the transfer. He was accompanied by the Ambassador of Cyprus to Greece, Kyriakos Kenevezos, and other officials.
A statement from the Presidency of the Republic said that President Nicos Anastasiades communicated on Tuesday morning with members of Zeta Emilianidou’s family conveying his deep sorrow for her loss.
