[01] Cyprus condemns Turkish Cypriot journalists' imprisonment

Cyprus, through its Charge d' Affairs to the United Nations Mr George Kasoulides, has condemned the imprisonment of two Turkish Cypriot journalists, after an illegal court in the Turkish occupied part passed a six month "jail sentence" against the editor in chief of the main opposition daily paper "Afrika" Mr Sener Levent and one of his reporters Mr Memduh Ener.

Mr Kasoulides has sent a letter to Human Rights Watch, Overseas Press Club, Committee to Protect Journalists, Freedom House and Amnesty International, informing them of "further unacceptable acts committed by the illegal regime against the Turkish Cypriot journalists" and asked for the organizations' support and action.

Mr Kasoulides also attached to the letter a press release issued by the Cyprus Union of Journalists, which also condemned the new provocative acts.

[02] Inauguration of Cypriot exhibition in Mexico

The Charge d' Affairs of Cyprus to Mexico Mr Andonis Mandritis, on 7 August 2002, opened an exhibition in the city of Venustiano Carranza under the title "Cyprus 9000 years of civilization".

Inaugurating the exhibition, which was organized by the Cyprus Press Office, Mr Mandritis thanked the local authorities of the Venustiano Carranza Municipality and referred to Cyprus' rich history, the Turkish invasion and occupation as well as the destruction of Cyprus' cultural heritage in the occupied areas.

The exhibition, which was visited by officials of the Venustiano Carranza Municipality, representatives of local governments, Mexican and foreign diplomats, as well as a great number of people, will remain open until Friday, 16 August 2002.
