British Bases to hand over to police wanted Greek Cypriot man

British Bases will hand over to police a 26-year-old Greek Cypriot man from Paphos who was on the Republic’s ‘wanted list’ in connection with car thefts and drugs.

On Tuesday, the young man pleaded guilty in court to assaulting a Bases police officer and damaging a police vehicle after he attempted to evade arrest.

He had been pulled over whilst driving a stolen car in Kolossi on January 7 and attempted to escape but after failing, he was quickly arrested and taken to the Bases Police station in Akrotiri.

The man, who has 14 warrants of arrest against his name in the Republic of Cyprus for car theft and drugs, is now scheduled to appear in an SBA Court on February 2.

He will be sentenced and then subsequently handed over to Cypriot authorities to answer his other pending charges. 

A passenger in the vehicle – a 22-year old man from Paphos – also wanted by the island’s police on theft charges, has now handed himself in to Cypriot authorities.
