  • We followed the reports published in POLITIS, PHILELEPHTHEROS and SIMERINI newspapers between 1-10 February 2010 TV programmes
  • TV programme ‘60 Minutes’ – SIGMA Channel The “invisible hands” that guide migrant workers to the Welfare Department Failed lawyers guide immigrants to the Welfare Department for the sake of ‘easy’ profit Immigrant lying on the floor inside the Welfare Offices started screaming and complaining about the reduction of the allowance he received. They are guided to such protest and threatening behaviours. Asylum seekers: plentifully survive on welfare benefits For the Welfare Department all humans are equal. However, a certain number of the department employees often distinguish “our people” and “the aliens” Following instructions given back home asylum seekers enter our country on false medical certificates claiming up to 3000 euros and they protest in case they are given less. The Welfare Dept employees do not refuse to do their duty. A pregnant lady working in the dept was violently hit and therefore lost her baby.
  • Car Accidents A different policy applies in case an alien gets involved in a car accident. When the victims are aliens there’s a short report made whereas a longer more detailed one is given for Cypriot victims (e.g. Simenrini Newspaper 7 and 8 Febr. 2010)
  • Petit Crime by immigrants/Cypriots An extensive reference is made in case the crime was committed by a non-Cypriot.
  • The Police encourage Xenophobia
  • The Barbaric Customs of Immigrants
  • Cannibal behaviour, or even worse than that, shown on TV of the the so called Yiannis Ayiannis…
  • Is ours a better jungle than theirs?
  • Not registered human beings
  • Conclusions There were no serious problems related to the coverage of the subject of immigrants (migrant workers, asylum seekers) by the Media in Cyprus. The Press coverage of the subject of Immigrants is more carefully given than the coverage made by the Televison programmes.

Οι κλοπές έγιναν την ώρα που οι εν λόγω γυναίκες προσπαθούσαν να εισέλθουν στις κατοικίες τους. Ο 28χρονος αλλοδαπός , σύμφωνα με τον εκπρόσωπο Τύπου της Αστυνομικής Διεύθυνσης Λάρνακας υπαστυνόμο Χρίστο Ανδρέου, κατονόμασε τον δεύτερο αλλοδαπό , λέγοντας ότι «είχαν συνωμοτήσει για τη διάπραξη της κλοπής της τσάντας». Ο δεύτερος αλλοδαπός συνελήφθη επίσης, αφού εκδόθηκε ένταλμα σύλληψης εναντίον του. Ο κ. Ανδρέου είπε ότι «το Σάββατο γύρω στις 18.40 γυναίκα, ηλικίας 59 ετών, η οποία διαμένει στη Λάρνακα, κατήγγειλε στην Αστυνομία ότι, ενώ βρισκόταν έξω από την οικία της, άγνωστο πρόσωπο, αλλοδαπός , της επιτέθηκε σπρώχνοντάς την με αποτέλεσμα να πέσει στο έδαφος». Πρόσθεσε ότι «ο αλλοδαπός πήρε την τσάντα της που περιείχε χρηματικό ποσό 30 περίπου ευρώ, προσωπικά της αντικείμενα και διάφορα έγγραφα και εγκατέλειψε τη σκηνή. Από εξετάσεις που έγιναν από την Αστυνομία στη σκηνή εντοπίστηκαν και παραλήφθηκαν διάφορα τεκμήρια, τα οποία οδήγησαν σε συγκεκριμένο πρόσωπο, αλλοδαπό ασιατικής καταγωγής, 28 χρονών». Ο 28χρονος αλλοδαπός συνελήφθη γύρω «Φαίνεται ότι τους τελευταίους δύο μήνες τα συγκεκριμένα άτομα είχαν προβεί και σε άλλες παρόμοιες εγκληματικές ενέργειες, αποσπώντας δηλαδή από γυναίκες τις τσάντες τους, ενώ αυτές προσπαθούσαν να εισέλθουν στις κατοικίες τους», κατέληξε στις δηλώσεις του ο εκπρόσωπος Τύπου της Αστυνομικής Διεύθυνσης Λάρνακας. </li></ul><ul><li>(εφημερίδα Σημερινή 8/10/2010) </li></ul>
