Question for written answer E-003002-19
to the Commission
Rule 138
Costas Mavrides (S&D)

 Subject:  Understaffing in schools in the occupied territories

Once again, there is a serious problem with the staffing of schools in the Turkish-occupied town of Rizokarpaso. The occupying authorities have used the same arbitrary and unjustifiable tactics as in previous years to vet teachers sent to teach in schools. This year, two teachers were rejected, as was one member of staff already teaching at a school. This is one of the many ways in which the pseudo-state controls and hampers the education of the enclaved Greek Cypriots living in the town, as well as disrupting programmes for young couples wishing to settle in the occupied towns and villages.

In light of the above, can the Commission say:

1. Is it aware of this situation?
2. What immediate action will it take to address this issue and how exactly will it bring it to the attention of those responsible?
3. What action does it intend to take if it considers that any of the suggestions made so far to the occupying regime have fallen on deaf ears?
