Old Limassol Port Polluted by Oil, Plastic - NIREAS
In a letter to the department of fisheries in the ministry of agriculture, Nireas reports 'ongoing heavy pollution from oil sludge and plastics by fishermen.'
The pollution was originally reported by a concerned citizen who called the department of fisheries but was told that it is not their responsibility.
"Further the person stated to us that workers involved in the construction site dump continuously building and other garbage in to the sea," said Nireas in a statement.
Questions are raised as to when the problem will be addressed and why there is no observer to protect the environment from the department of fisheries.
Nireas has published photos of the pollution which can be seen below.
