Greek Cypriot man found assaulting a woman from Congo arrested

On Wednesday, we posted a viral video showing a Greek Cypriot man physically assaulting a young woman from Congo while she was holding her 2-year-old child, reports on Thursday claim that the man sold her a bad car.

The assault reportedly took place near Larnaca port in south Cyprus on Wednesday morning.

The man is shown hitting and kicking a woman holding a young child in her arms while she sit on the pavement. The same man then attacks another man from Africa who tried to intervene.He then went back to the woman and kicked her in the back.

A Greek Cypriot man then appear to push the violent man away from her.

The man, a 43-year-old Greek Cypriot man was arrested on Thursday after the video of him kicking a woman from the Congo holding her baby went viral on social media.

According to report, the woman had bought a car from the perpetrator after being reassured that the car had no issues. However, after the payment, the car had some problems, and the woman took the car to the mechanic to confirm the car’s condition, whereby the mechanic informed her that the car actually had several problems.

When the woman told the perpetrator about the car’s issues, he refused to discuss any possible solutions and told her that “nothing could be done to him” in his country and proceeded to attack her.

According to Cyprus Mail, investigations into the incident started on Wednesday afternoon when the case was reported to the police.

Greek Cypriot Attorney General Giorgos Savvides stated that he had communicated with the chief of police “who assured that a criminal investigation is underway in relation to the incident”.

“The unacceptable beating of a woman in Larnaca causes sadness and intense disgust,” House President Annita Demetriou said.

She added that such “intense incidents involving racism, intolerance and gender violence” had no place in a state with rule of law. “We will not stop fighting…to eradicate them,” Demetriou said.

Non-profit organisation generation for change Cy, who also shared the video, said the man knew the woman as he had previously sold her a car, which was later found to have problems.

“We strongly condemn all acts of violence, including acts of violence against the most vulnerable people of our society,” they added, calling on the authorities to take action.

Hadjioannou described the violence as a racial attack. He suggested it was motivated by a “belief of racial superiority” and sarcastically added “the state should step in and hold their babies while we beat them”.

“We can’t stand any more black immigrant women with babies, we are forced to beat them,” the activist added.

Responding to a comment, he said that such incidents happen often, but “only sometimes someone has the courage to record them”.
