Three day remand for referee

The Nicosia District court on Friday ordered the three-day remand of Michalis Argirou, chairman of the association of football referees, in connection with match-fixing allegations made by referee Marios Panayi.
Panayi’s allegations had also implicated Michalis Spirou, a former member of the Cyprus Football Association’s Referee Commission – a body responsible for appointing match officials in football games and deciding on promotions – in 2010 and 2011.
Both men were arrested on Wednesday and brought before the court for remand. On Thursday, the court approved the police’s request for a four-day remand but postponed ruling on a similar request for Argirou for Friday.
