Police have issued a photograph of a man they wish to speak to in connection with an accident earlier this month after which a motorcycle involved was secretly removed from the scene.
“Police request the help of the public to identify an unknown person, to facilitate investigations concerning the offence of interference with a police investigation into a traffic collision and the removal of a motorcycle from the scene, which occurred on October 5, 2016, in Limassol,” a statement accompanying the photograph said.
Limassol police have been looking for the motorcycle which was removed on the night of the accident before their arrival at the scene.
The large capacity bike, ridden by a 24-year-old went into the back of car driven by a 30-year-old Russian woman who had a five-year-old child in the back at the time.
The biker, who was seriously injured in the crash suffering a number of fractures, was transferred to hospital while the others involved escaped unhurt.
The officer on duty in Limassol that evening had told the Cyprus Mail that a breathalyser test carried out on the rider returned a result of 54µg, more than twice over the legal limit of 22µg, adding that blood was taken from the man for further analysis.
Police at the time said they were looking at stills from CCTV footage to ascertain who took the bike after the collision, where to and why.
Police are urging anyone who has information that may throw some light on the case to call Limassol CID, their nearest police station or the citizen’s line on 1460.
