Helen Christophi reports:

Two Cyta subscribers have filed separate lawsuits in the Limassol District Court yesterday, alleging the company has been secretly monitoring their mobile phone calls and text messages. They are seeking compensation of up to €100,000.

Limassol law firm Kostas Melas and Associates is representing the two subscribers, a young man working in the National Guard and his father-in-law, who works with the coast guard.

The two men allege in their lawsuit that they were told in 2007 by a government-appointed criminal investigator that they were under surveillance.


Cyta allegedly monitored their incoming and outgoing calls between April and May of 2005, recording the caller, calling area, date, and duration of each of the calls, as well as the addresses and fixed phone numbers associated with the mobile phones numbers calling the two men. Text messages sent to the two subscribers were also monitored.
