Interview with Mr Panayiotis Demetriou MEP
Our second meeting was with Mr Panayiotis Demetriou MEP. He told us that he was a lawyer in Cyprus, knew Mr Theodoros Aristodemou personally, and had spoken to him at length on the telephone about our case. Mr Theodoros Aristodemou wrote three letters to Mr Demetriou on the 18th January
Mr Demetriou in turn wrote to Theresa Villiers MEP on the same day
We discussed Mr Aristodemou’s letter and observed that many of the facts stated were inaccurate. In view of time constraints, we were unable
to table all evidence but showed Mr Demetriou several documents to demonstrate the inaccuracies.
In his letter, Mr Aristodemou contends that the two Companies known as Aristo Developers and Artha Developers are not intertwined. Mr Demetriou was shown cash receipts for certain work carried out by Aristo Developers over a period a period of time ( Receipts 1 , Receipts 2) , some of which carried the name of Aristo Developers, whilst others were in the name of Artha Developers. Both ‘organisations’ had the same address, telephone numbers, and company logo. We questioned how it was that receipts for the same work on a property, carried out by the same personnel in the same time period, could be issued by Aristo and Artha unless the two were in fact intertwined, or indeed one and the same.
We discussed the outline plan of the wall that was approved by Paphos District Council (see attached plan wall ). The replacement wall has not been constructed in accordance with the approved plan, and properties 9, 10, 11 and 12 have lost land as a result.
We explained to Mr Demetriou that this was yet another negative consequence of works proceeding without any consultation with owners. Hence the need for a 10 year warranty backed by the Government certificates to show that it has signed off works as being fit for purpose and constructed to plans at every stage of construction. We observed that had Paphos District Council taken care to inspect plans and works on site as should have been done 14 years ago, we might have had a wall that was fit for purpose, and without the resultant secondary damage,
