Makarios Hospital

Turkish Cypriot caught using Greek Cypriot refugee’s lost medical card for months

A Greek Cypriot woman who lost her card at Makarios Hospital in Nicosia, three months ago recently reported that she could not find her medical card and applied for a reissue. To her surprise she received a call from the hospital on Monday and she was told that her card was found in possession of a Turkish Cypriot couple who have been allegedly using it for the past three months. The woman went immediately to the hospital where the hospital officials and the Turkish Cypriots were having an argument regarding the stolen medical card. This ended up with the police having to intervene and remove the Turkish Cypriot couple from the hospital who were let free to go. The victim made a formal complaint to the Police who didn’t detain the couple for stolen identity.
