PAPHOS court on Wednesday ordered that a 54-year-old, being detained in connection with sexually molesting his niece, 12, remain in custody until the next hearing, which was set for December 5.

The man appeared with a new lawyer, Evangelos Pourgourides.

The incident allegedly took place earlier in November in the Mouttalos suburb of Paphos, according to the girl’s family.

The suspect denies the accusations, claiming he had always treated the girl, his sister’s daughter, with fatherly affection and not in a lewd manner.

The girl had been examined by a state pathologist who did not find any external injuries.
