Education Minister Costas Hambiaouris on Wednesday said he was forced to transfer a Nicosia high school headmaster who suspended a Muslim pupil last week because she was wearing a headscarf because he feared serious incidents if the man went back.

He said an investigation into the incident was to be submitted to him on Wednesday.

The girl, Alaa, a Syrian refugee, returned to school on Monday after Hambiaouris on Saturday intervened and met her with her father, and the headmaster in question.

In the meantime, the headmaster was transferred to a different post which  angered the pupils who accused the education ministry of forgiving racist behaviours.

Defending his decision, Hambiaouris told state broadcaster CyBC that he was forced to do it, because although the girl had said she was satisfied by what was said during the meeting last Saturday and wanted the issue to be over, student groups had said they would hold protests and even take over the school to prevent the headmaster from entering.

“The physical safety of both the headmaster and the pupils was at stake,” Hambiaouris said.

He said he decided to have the headmaster transferred to another post to avoid any incidents.

Ayia Napa to install CCTV system in move to spruce up image

Cabinet on Wednesday approved the installation of  a CCTV system in Ayia Napa aiming to improve a sense of security in the teeming resort.

The announcement was made by Ayia Napa Mayor Yiannis Karousos on his Facebook page.

He said that the CCTV system will be installed in line with the recommendations of the commissioner for personal data protection.

“We are going ahead with the launch of tenders for their implementation. Thanks to Interior Minister Constantinos Petrides for his help in implementing this idea,” the mayor said.

And he added: “This system will help improve the sense of security, deal with misdemeanours and operate as a deterrent on a number of issues.”

Ayia Napa attracts thousands of holidaymakers every year, most of them youngsters looking for a good time.

But there have been complaints of incidents of anti-social behaviour from rowdy tourists, including fist fights, which the resort is keen to  address so as to spruce up its image.
