    [01] UN urged to stop plunder in occupied areas

    Geneva, Mar 22 (CNA) -- Kyrenia Bishop, Pavlos, has called on the UN Commission for Human Rights to safeguard human rights in the Turkish occupied part of Cyprus and protect the island's religious and cultural heritage.

    Addressing the 53rd meeting of the UN Commission here, Metropolitan Pavlos denounced the continuing destruction of Cyprus' civilisation in the occupied areas of the Republic.

    Turkey is willingly deaf to calls for a halt of its destructive methods, and ignores the basic rules about man and his civilisation, the Metropolitan said.

    He outlined numerous examples of Greek Orthodox churches in occupied Cyprus, pillaged under the watchful eye of Ankara, including the Cathedral of Archangel Michael and the Monasteries of Antiphonitis, Armenomonastiro and Apostolos Andreas.

    Pavlos told CNA that two delegations, attending the meeting, requested material about the pillage of Cyprus' cultural and religious heritage by the self-styled Turkish Cypriot regime to bring the matter into the limelight in their respective countries.

    "Turkish representatives asked for a copy of my speech," he said.

    [03] House President congratulates new Greek opposition leader

    Nicosia, Mar 22 (CNA) -- President of the House of Representatives, Spyros Kyprianou, sent today a message of congratulations to newly-elected leader of the main opposition party "New Democracy", Constantinos Karamanlis.

    "On the occasion of your election to the post of the president of New Democracy, I would like to convey to you my warmest and most heartfelt congratulations," the message reads.

    "I have no doubt that you will continue to work with renewed effort for the benefit of Hellenism," it adds.

    Wishing Karamanlis "every success" in his task, Kyprianou expresses hope that New Democracy will help substantially to face national dangers and problems.

    "I look forward to cooperating with you in the struggle for freedom and justice for Cyprus," the House President says in his message.
