In particular, the Minister of Justice convened meetings, appointed a responsible officer and decided to give a boost to those who owe large sums and to those who are known but are declared undetected.

Most warrants were executed in the province of Limassol where during the above period 2.285 warrants were considered enforceable and the amount of 295.884 euros was collected. Nicosia follows with the orders that were executed amounting to 1.562 and the amount collected to reach € 372.674.

Fifth province is Famagusta with 364 warrants for the amount of € 74.403 and last due to population the province of Morphou where 89 warrants were executed and € 21.720 were collected. 

As it was said in "F", the Police will intensify its efforts to execute as many pending warrants as possible and will continue to turn its attention to people who are able to pay the fines and to date for various reasons have managed to escape . According to the findings of the Audit Office, there were debtors, police officers, court clerks or civil servants who owed different amounts and no attempt was made to pay them. Also among the politically exposed persons against whom fines were pending were three deputies.

Measures are also taken at airports so that if a debtor travels abroad, it can be checked whether fines are pending against him and he is required to pay them before leaving.
