Remand in Paphos for forged passports

PAPHOS district court has remanded a 35-year-old Syrian woman and her 19-year-old son in custody for two days after police stopped the pair, and the woman’s 13-year-old daughter from boarding a flight to Stockholm on Sunday.

They were stopped at Paphos airport on their way to Sweden at noon when officers established that the Greek passports they were in possession of were forged.

The Syrian nationals were then all taken to Paphos CID offices for questioning. They told officers that they had bought the counterfeit documents a month ago for €1,000 from a Turkish man in Nicosia.

The 35-year-old and her son were held by police for questioning as it was established they were also illegally on the island, while the 13-year-old girl was picked up by her father. Paphos CID is investigating the case.
