The officer that raised his hand to me shouted in Greek because he was threatening me! The others spoke to me in english fine. This is an european country under european legislation where the english language is expected in government/police offices.

Though they did not have the right to shout at you as they did, they had every right to speak to you only in Greek and not in English - it is NOT one of the languages of this country. The same as if I went to any other country and expected them to know Greek in a policestation - it isn't going to happen.

I would recommend that you speak to the citizens advice bureau in your town and then contact the divisional headquarters of the police in your area - you can find it in that link above. I would also copy the letter it to the editors of the Cyprus Mail and/or Cyprus Weekly.

The Police should be taken to task for things that they do wrong - don't mix what they do wrong, with what you want personally.

Chief Constable where? If I try to get his name from the same police station they will probably not give it after the way they behaved at the weekend. It was the person in charge that night that raise his hand to my face.
