Man arrested for possessing stolen passport

AN Iraqi national has been arrested at Paphos airport after the authorities found him to be in possession of another man’s passport.

During questioning, the Iraqi allegedly told police that he bought the passport in Turkey for €10,000.

According to police, the man came to the government-controlled areas from the occupied areas with the aim of travelling to Brussels via Paphos airport.

Police established, however, that the passport belongs to a person of Greek origin.
