Fourth land deal suspect arrested at airport (updated)

Orestis Vassiliou

Orestis Vassiliou, state telecoms company CYTA’s union representative who was wanted in connection with a dodgy land deal in Larnaca involving the organisation’s pension fund, was given a seven day remand by Larnaca District Court on Thursday.

He was arrested on Thursday morning at Larnaca airport following his arrival from Athens, police said.

Vassiliou apparently left the country just hours before police executed a warrant for his arrest on Tuesday. Stathis Kittis, the chairman of CyTA was remanded in custody for eight days on Wednesday, along with two other suspects.

Kittis allegedly received €300,000 in kickbacks while the other two suspects, CyTA employee Yiannis Souroullas and his brother Gregoris, a land registry worker, were allegedly linked to a company that also received thousands of euros.
