The trial before the Criminal Court of two defendants in connection with financial irregularities relating to properties used by the Limassol-based University of Technology (TEPAK) was adjourned on Thursday after defence lawyers asked for more time to study new evidence.
The trial was scheduled to start on Thursday and continue on Friday and next week, October 29. Three more hearings were set for November 11, 17, and 19.
The court granted the defence request and moved the trial to November, keeping the three dates previously set and adding the 26th.
The pair, Zenon Achillides, 44, head of TEPAK’s property management service, and 51-year-old contractor Giorgos Hadjigeorgiou, have been charged in connection with unauthorised payments, double charges, and other offences.
Between them they face 22 charges including conspiracy to commit felony, forgery, receiving bribes, and abuse of power.
