Two arrested for fake SMS to bypass lockdown

A man and a woman were arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of showing a fake SMS to police in order to bypass the stay at home decree.

Philenews reports that the message was shown to police in Limassol in one instance and in the SBA in the second.

The man is aged 49 and the woman 40. She told police that the man had allegedly created and sent her the SMS.

The first incident occurred on the British Bases and the second in Limassol. Police investigations showed a link between the two cases.

Police are therefore investigating a case of conspiracy to commit an offence, creating fake text messages to bypass the quarantine decrees and creating fake text messages in violation of the law ratifying a Council of Europe convention against cyber crime.
