Russian man arrested at Nicosia checkpoint

Paphos defendant with travel restrictions detained in Agios Dhometios after being found in contempt of court


A man, who was ordered to surrender his travel documents during a criminal trial, was detained a Nicosia checkpoint after officers found a second passport in his possession.

According to police, a 35-year-old Russian national and permanent resident in Paphos, was stopped for inspection by police officers at the Agios Dhometios checkpoint as he was trying to cross from north to south.

Police detained the man and later arrested on a warrant, after he was found in contempt of court for keeping a second passport.

It was not clear whether the man had travelled abroad or simply visited the north, but police arrested him for failure to obey a travel restriction and for being in contempt of court.
