Cyprus: politician on the side of the bird mafia!


In a rant on his Facebook page Hamboullas ( One-time Disy MP in Cyprus) accused the authorities of treason and urged residents to attack the activists.


“They are not  aktivists, they are shit ruffians!! Break their bones wherever you find them and if you can’t, call me and I will help,” said Hamboullas.


Hamboullas has since removed the post.


His outburst came after a statement by the Committee Against Bird Slaughter (Cabs) said 29 of its volunteers had collected 2,596 limesticks and 53 nets in the district, one of two main hotspots for bird trapping, a lucrative business that fetches millions to poachers.

In no other country in the European Union does poaching go to such an extent. 4,000 poachers (at 1,120,489 island inhabitants) are said to have contributed to the cruel killing  last year and more than 2 million birds were killed.

And this is how the serial killers act: Rods are smeared with an odorless and colorless glue and placed on attractive -for the birds- landing sites; the birds stick to it and are at the mercy of their tormentors – the fishing method was already used in the Stone Age.

“The illegal activities are open and more often supported by high-ranking politicians and administrative employees,” says a report about  “the Bird Mafia in Cyprus”. 

We believe that immediately! if the kickback Hamboullas from the affair comes unpunished only with the deletion of a line in his Facebook page, then we have again learned something from corruption in politics.
