In 1987, Ms. Hadjitofi was appointed Consul of Cyprus in The Netherlands. She was the youngest ever Honorary Consul appointed by Cyprus and the first female. Because of the absence of a Cypriot Embassy in the Netherlands at the time, Tasoula's activities as Honorary Consul covered all spheres, ranging from political, social, economic, cultural and the media. In the course of her service as Honorary Consul, she accommodated the needs of many Cypriots, Greeks and Turks. These included facilities for medical treatment, addressing personal or family problems as well as providing assistance for integration etc.
Tasoula was nominated for European Woman of The Year for her efforts in combating art trafficking. Since 1988, Tasoula has traced and retrieved countless artifacts of significant historical and cultural value to her native Cyprus in addition to the more than five thousand artifacts that were uncovered in the Munich case from all around the world.Gloria Minott Presents...Steve Berry (Author)_Episode 193
