Banana Republic.

When a passenger lights a cigarette outside an airplane despite posted warnings endangering the lives of the passengers, what do you do? A big fine would be the least trouble for such a behavior.

But in Cyprus two passengers were let go because of connections with a high ranking police officer. They even had the audacity to sue the airport employee who extinguished their cigarettes for publicly insulting them and bodily injuries.

I left Cyprus mainly because of nepotism found in every sphere of life and unfortunately it still is true today.

Cyprus Mail reports the details of the incident.
