 The Deputy Head Warden of the Central Prisons George Tryfonides (pictured) has given up his post and requested to return to his previous policing duties, Justice Minister Ionas Nicholaou has announced.
Tryfonides’ action opens the way for a change of leadership at the troubled prisons, over the last days rocked by alleged mass rape of an inmate and a number of suicides and attempted suicides.
Also commenting on a Presidential Palace meeting on the situation at the prisons, Nicholaou said a series of immediate and long-term measures had been decided on.
These are expected to be announced later today.
