Former Cypriot President

A few days ago, the body of former Cypriot President, Tassos Papadopoulos, was stolen from its grave only a day before the first anniversary of his death. The body, which was buried in a Nicosia cemetery and was protected by a marble slab weighing more than 250 kilograms, was removed overnight in a heavy rainstorm. President Papadopoulos was an outspoken opponent of the UN Peace Plan to reunite the Turkish and Greek sections of the island and the desecration of his grave will certainly affect the current push toward reunification.
