Manhunt in Cyprus after detainees escape

Cyprus authorities on high alert

Three detainees managed to escape during their transfer from the court in Nicosia to the central prisons, prompting a manhunt by the so-called "police authorities" of the pseudo-state. The incident, which occurred on Monday, July 3, has sparked concern and raised questions about security procedures.

According to Turkish Cypriot media reports, the escape occurred when the detainees fled from the patrol vehicle. The vehicle used for their flight was later discovered abandoned in the vicinity of the controversial "Ataturk Academy" area, intensifying the search efforts.

The fugitives have been identified as Aydın Güner, İbrahim Takimcılar, and Hasan Takicılar. They face serious charges related to criminal activities, including assaulting police officers and a rape case. Their escape has heightened the urgency to bring them back into custody to face justice.

In response to the incident, the authorities of the Republic of Cyprus have mobilized resources and implemented stringent security measures. The police force is working diligently to locate the fugitives and prevent any potential harm they may cause. The investigation is underway, exploring all possible leads and scrutinizing the possibility that the escapees might have sought refuge in the unrestricted areas.

The escape has drawn attention to the need for a comprehensive review of security protocols during detainee transfers. The incident serves as a reminder of the importance of maintaining high levels of vigilance and reinforcing security measures to prevent similar occurrences in the future.

As the manhunt continues, the authorities and law enforcement agencies remain committed to ensuring the safety of the public and swiftly bringing the escaped detainees back into custody. The Republic of Cyprus is closely coordinating efforts to handle this challenging situation and restore confidence in the criminal justice system.

Updates regarding the ongoing search and any significant developments will be provided as more information becomes available.
