Businessman arrested for sexual exploitation of a minor

Two men, including a well-known Larnaca businessman, 59, have been remanded in custody for six days in connection with the sexual exploitation of a minor, it emerged on Thursday.

The second suspect, 35, is also suspected of abduction, rape, causing actual bodily harm, solicitation, and exploitation of prostitutes.

The 35-year-old has been accused by a girl, 15, from Larnaca, of abduction and rape.

She told police that she had met the man through an online social network and they had agreed to meet last Saturday.

The girl claimed the suspect took her to his flat in Nicosia where he beat her and had sex with her against her will.

A 14-year-old girl also went to the flat on condition that she would be paid for her services, it was claimed. The 35-year-old also had sex with her, the court heard.

The 15-year-old claimed that she and the other girl were then driven to a flat in Larnaca where they had sex again, this time with the participation of the 59-year-old.

Police have not yet located the 14-year-old girl.
