Woman remanded in custody in Limassol

A 38 year-old pub owner was arrested in Limassol on Thursday morning and remanded in custody for four days as police probe a case of pimping.

Police spokesman, Ioannis Sotiriades said that the police received a tip-off that there was prostitution in the woman’s pub.

“Police officers raided the 38 year-old’s pub in the area of Limassol’s old port. At that time, only the owner and a client were present at the pub. The suspect was arrested and is now being questioned,” said Sotiriades.

A woman from a Central-Asian country who had been working illegally in Cyprus, is thought to be a victim of the 38 year-old’s actions, according to Sotiriades.

She was transferred to a shelter for human trafficking victims.
