A memorial motorcycle procession for Tassos Isaak and Solomos Solomou will arrive at the ‘Tassos Marcou’ stadium in Paralimni on Saturday at 8:30 pm, police announced.

The event will start with a motorcycle procession from all the cities of Cyprus that will all arrive at the stadium to honour the two men killed 20 years ago.

Specifically, police said that motorists will begin the procession at 4:30 pm from Paphos Stadium in Paphos, at 5:30 pm from the industrial area of Ayios Athanasios in Limassol, at 6:00 pm at the roundabout at Rizoelia, and 6:30 from the Ayia Napa roundabout.

The motorcycles will head in an organised manner towards the stadium in Paralimni, police said. They are set to pass from the roundabout to Ayia Napa, Protaras Avenue, Cavo Grecko, and Ayia Napa-Paralimni Avenue.

Police have said that they will be monitoring the processions, as a large number of motorists are expected to be taking part in the event.

The public have been invited to be cautious on the roads and to follow police direction that will be stationed at different points along the route.

Isaak and Solomou were killed in 1996, three days apart from each other. Isaak was beaten to death by Turkish extremists in the occupied areas known as ‘grey wolves’, during a peaceful protest in the UN Buffer Zone in Deryneia.

Solomou was killed three days later at a memorial for his cousin Isaak. A Turkish soldier shot him in cold blood as he attempted to climb a flag pole to take down the Turkish flag in the UN Buffer Zone where his cousin had been killed.
