"My dear Mr. Savvas Liasis. In the kitchen of his house, in Agia Triada of Gialousa. 44 years free, 45 years trapped. In fact he lived freer than us. Even if it was years bitter. "I will not leave my home to go south and ask to be allowed to return to the north," he said in 1974. And he stayed there, rooted in the place where he was born. Under harsh and adverse conditions. Shockingly decent. Today, it has passed into eternity. It was time to meet his beloved Maroula, who in recent years often came to sleep and kept him company. With her, and their son Giannakis, who went missing that morning of August 14, in Klepini, Kyrenia ", journalist Thanasis Fotiou wrote characteristically about Savvas Liasis.
