Residents rally against antenna

By Anna Hassapi

RESIDENTS in the Apostolos Andreas area of Limassol are staging a demonstration tomorrow, against the EAC’s refusal to remove an unwanted antenna from the roof of a building.

Residents in Ayias Sofias Street claim that radiation from the antenna is linked to the increasing cancer cases in the area, and that it is located too close to a school.

After hearing the two sides at a parliamentary health committee discussion, MP Eleni Theocharous suggested that a solution to the specific area’s problem was found. “The EAC has committed to removing the antenna and possibly the issue of the specific area has been solved,” Theocharous said on Thursday.

The area’s residents, however, received no such promise and confirmed that Sunday’s demonstration will take place as planned. “The EAC did not say they will remove it. They said they will consult with the flat owners of the building, where the antenna stands, and if the owners don’t want it then the EAC will take it down.

“However, the owners were present at the parliamentary discussion and said they do not want it; we have also gathered signatures from all owners on a statement that asks its removal. Still, the EAC wants another consultation,” Neophytos Neroupos, representative of Apostolos Andreas area residents, told the Cyprus Mail.

Neroupos confirmed the demonstration will take place at Ayias Sofias Street, at approximately 9.30am on Sunday and that MPs, city councilors and the press have been invited. He also indicated that the antenna may be brought down by force, if no progress is made.
