The Committee on Petitions conducted a fact-finding mission to Larnaca, Cyprus on 20-22 September 2017. The purpose of the mission was to provide a follow-up to a series of petitions by local residents concerning environmental and health concerns due to the creation of an industrial port in Larnaca and consequences of its operation to the broader area.

The delegation visited the harbour of Larnaca and the adjacent municipality of Aradippou and met with petitioners, representatives from Ministries and state entities concerned, as well as members of the Cypriot House of Representatives and the local mayors.
