Cypriot youth gets the cane
LIMASSOL (Cyprus) Mon. -- Rogiros Constantinides, a 16-year-old Cypriot student, was sentenced to 12 strokes of the cane here after being arrested by his father -- a police officer.
Constantinides was convicted on two charges of being a member of an unlawful organisation and of distributing leaflets in the name of Eoka, the organisation waging terrorism in support of union with Greece.
His father is a police inspector in the Criminal Investigation Department of Limassol.
Meanwhile, the curfew on Papithos village was lifted today although the inhabitants were still £200 short of the £7,000 collective fine imposed by the Governor, Sir John Harding, for a series of terrorist outbreaks in the village.
