Two police officers and a businessman were arrested on Monday in connection with a multimillion euro Larnaca real estate deal involving state telecoms company (CyTA).
The two officers, aged 40 and 53-years-old, have already been suspended.
They are suspected of drafting a false report that enabled the sale of the land, which belonged to a Turkish Cypriot.
The businessman, 43, was also arrested on Monday, suspected of bribing the two officers to draft a favourable report
The two officers allegedly produced a report saying the Turkish Cypriot seller had resided in the government-controlled areas for six months – a necessary condition — prior to selling the land.
