Cyprus arrests assailant of Iranian woman: MFA

Public Relations Office of Iran’s Foreign Ministry announced Friday that the assailant of an Iranian woman in Cyprus had been arrested, underlining that the Iranian embassy had pursued the inhumane act and asked the Cypriot government to act accordingly.

Following a video clip showing an Iranian woman being beaten up by her apartment owner in Cyprus, the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement.

The statement reads: “The consulate of the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Cyprus visited the attacked Iranian woman in the hospital, and pursued the process of her medical treatment. Also the embassy pursued the inhumane treatment of the Iranian citizen and asked the Cypriot government to act accordingly.”

The Iranian Foreign Ministry reflected that the Cypriot officials had expressed sorrow over the inhumane act and their promise to pursue the matter. On Thursday, the news of the detention of the assailant, a British citizen, was released.
