Court martial for army bullies

THREE non-commissioned officers will face court martial, accused of abusing an 18-year-old conscript apparently because he supported the wrong football team, it emerged yesterday.

The incident took place earlier this month at an army barracks in Nicosia.

Daily Haravghi reported yesterday that the three will face court martial, after an investigation into the incident suggested criminal offenses had been committed.

The report was confirmed by a military source.

The alleged abuse came after the teenage soldier was seen drawing a shamrock – the emblem of Omonia football club – on a piece of paper.

It was reported at the time that the soldier was wrapped in plastic tape and put in a barrel upside down.
