TWO men, a 40-year-old owner of a pub in Nicosia and his 47-year-old partner, were remanded for eight days yesterday in an alleged case of human trafficking.

According to police spokesman Andreas Angelides, the two suspects were arrested during a raid after a tip-off received by the crime prevention unit and the office against human trafficking.

After searching the pub, police found €33,740 in cash and a notebook with evidence relevant to the case.

“In two hotel rooms, €100 were found and other evidence related to issues concerning prostitution,” Angelides said.

Three women – one at the pub and two in the hotel – were taken in for testimony, as police want to verify whether they were victims of human trafficking.
