    Increase of illegal immigrants in Cyprus due to Turkish occupation

    Nicosia, May 11 (CNA) --- The number of illegal immigrants in Cyprus has increased a lot in the past two years, primarily due to the arrival of immigrants to the southern government controlled areas of the Republic through the northern Turkish occupied part of the island, where the Cyprus Police are prevented from exercising their jurisdiction.

    ''According to a report by the UN High Commission for Refugees, Cyprus is one of the first countries that immigrants prefer comparably. In 2004 applications for political asylum have increased by 499%, making Cyprus the first country on the list on centesimal percentage'', Chief of Cyprus police Tasos Panayiotou said today.

    Addressing the 27th Capital Policing Europe Conference entitled ''Illegal Immigration'', that takes place here 11 - 13 May, Cyprus Police chief said that if this increase continues, Cyprus could face financial and social problems, and he called on European countries to take immediate measures against this trend.
