Cyprus -Opening hours of shops disputed -April 11, 2014

The organisation of small shop owners (POVEK) has appealed to the head of the Church of Cyprus to use his influence to change the opening hours of shops.

The organisation of small shop owners (POVEK) has appealed to the head of the Church of Cyprus to use his influence to change the opening hours of shops. POVEK said it has received many complaints from shop owners and employees that beyond other problems, the ‘inhumane’ hours limited the ability to exercise their religious rights. The organisation said that, according to the law issued by the government in July 2013, shops are allowed to remain open until 8pm, and 6pm on Friday and Saturday during the ten days before Easter. The act extending shop hours allows staying open for longer, including Wednesday afternoons and Sundays.
