President Nicos Anastasiades has instructed police to investigate reports a Turkish Cypriot bus driver had been harassed at Larnaca Airport earlier this month when he went to pick up tourists to transfer to the Turkish occupied north, government spokesman Prodromos Prodromou said on Thursday.

He said the issue had been raised by UN special representative Elizabeth Spehar during a meeting with President Anastasiades yesterday.

As police have no information since no complaint was filed,  they had contacted  the bicommunal technical committee on crime. The committee arranged for the bus driver to give a statement tomorrow which will enable police to carry out a full investigation, the spokesman added.
