The row between the Antiquities Department and Paphos Mayor Fedonas Fedonos has escalated after the department head sent a letter of complaint to Attorney General Costas Clerides.
Antiquities Department Director Marina Solomidou-Ieronimidou had previously slammed the outspoken mayor over his comments in which he accused some workers of the Antiquities Department of stealing artifacts and then selling them – something she vehemently denied before demanding that he presented proof to substantiate his claims.
Solomidou-Ieronimidou had also threatened legal action against Fedonos.
Her letter to the attorney general, according to media reports, was to not only complain against the actions of the Paphos mayor but to also request that he puts pressure on him to hand over any proof he may have.
The letter was also approved by Communications and Works Minister Marios Demetriades.
