Bafra taxi drivers yesterday blocked the road to the Noah’s Ark Hotel in Bafra, refusing to allow private taxis belonging to the hotel to pass.
This was in protest at the hotel owning 7 private taxis although it only has a licence for 3. The taxi drivers feel that this is depriving them of a living.
When the hotel responded by calling in taxis from nearby Famagusta for its clients; the striking taxi drivers blocked their way also.
Police were eventually called in and by the evening had dispersed the blockade.
