Police on Tuesday are expected to request from the Famagusta District Court that it suspends the operation of a Protaras club that operated through the long weekend, stacking up several cases of violations of coronavirus decrees.
Police spokesperson Christos Andreou said the club is faced with five cases of violations of coronavirus decrees, in addition to four more cases filed against it by the Deputy Tourism Ministry relating to operating without a license.
All nine cases were set to be submitted before the Famagusta District Court in Paralimni on Tuesday, with police expected to request the suspension of the club’s operation. If accepted by the Court, the club could be closed down immediately.
The operation of the club in Protaras over the long weekend sparked outrage among the public and the Health and Justice Ministries, as coronavirus decrees in place effectively prohibit the operation of clubs due to the difficulty of maintaining health and safety protocols in place.
