The owners of agricultural premises in the Akamas area are set to face justice for unauthorized interventions and modifications, violating their licenses.

Following the uproar caused by the revelations labeled "K," the Ministry of Interior swiftly launched an investigation.

On-site inspections within Akamas uncovered 29 cases of illegalities, prompting the preparation of reports sent to the General Prosecutor's office for further action. Despite receiving notices and a two-month grace period to rectify the violations, 20 owners failed to comply.

With no corrective action taken by the owners, the Paphos District Administration and the Department of Urban Planning and Housing are gearing up to submit misdemeanor reports within the next two weeks.

These reports aim to facilitate further handling by the General Prosecutor's Office and the initiation of judicial measures.

Interference Attempts:

The Ministry of Interior's revelation of illegalities in Akamas sparked attempts by local actors to thwart impending legal actions. According to insider information, agents within Akamas, identified during checks as engaging in illegal activities, sought to impede the process.

The violations, discovered since September through thorough checks directed by Minister of Interior Konstantinos Ioannou, involved a collaborative effort from officers of the Paphos District Administration, the Department of Town Planning and Housing (Paphos offices), and the Department of Hunting and Fauna.

Physical inspections and technological means revealed illegal interventions in 25 premises on the outskirts of the Akamas National Forest Park, near areas within the Natura Network.

Legal action had already been initiated in five of these cases, emphasizing the seriousness of the situation.
