The Nicosia district court has postponed to July 18 the mitigation hearing in the hit-and-run case that resulted in a man’s death in 2007.
The mitigation hearing had originally been scheduled for July 10.
In late June, the court found Efi Herodotou guilty on two counts – causing death due to reckless driving, and running a red light on December 27, 2007, which resulted in the death of 17-year-old Emilios Ioannou.
Herodotou had been acquitted over the incident in 2009, but state prosecutors looking to appeal the case discovered evidence submitted in the trial had been forged and tampered with, and at least one defence witness had perjured himself.
Following a decision to retry the case, Cyprus police issued a warrant for Herodotou’s arrest in 2011, but she had fled the country with her parents.
They were arrested in Athens and extradited to Cyprus in January.
A district court can only impose a maximum sentence of five years.
