EAC employee arrested for defrauding citizens

The suspect stands accused of misusing citizens' funds totaling more than €30,000 intended for the purchase of solar panels under the EU scheme

A 43-year-old resident of Paphos has been ordered by the Paphos District Court to be detained for seven days on allegations of misappropriating over €30,000 from a semi-governmental organization, AEK, intended for the installation of photovoltaic panels.

The suspect, an employee of the organization, was arrested on Saturday following a complaint by an AEK manager to the police. According to the complaint, the suspect accepted 109 customer applications between June 2022 and March 2023, but instead of depositing the funds, issued fake payment receipts.

The charges against the suspect include theft, forgery, circulation of a forged document, misappropriation of money by false representation, and money laundering from illegal activities. The Paphos CID is investigating the case.
