Fines, community service, and match suspensions for 14 hooligans

Limassol court

The Limassol district court on Wednesday ordered six months community service for 11 people and fined them €300 each after they were found guilty of rioting during a football match in October 2015.

The court also handed three other men a €300-fine and a six-month suspension from stadiums during football matches.

The 14 fans, aged between 15 and 24, were arrested in October 2015 for trying forcibly to enter Tsirion Stadium without any tickets, during an AEL-Aris Limassol match.

The men, who were then released on a €5,000 bail each, were among a bigger group of AEL fans, around 30, who had arrived by bus from Paphos.

The group, police had said, walked “aggressively towards Gate 3, wearing hoods and scarves, while some of them were holding wooden sticks and demanded to enter the stadium without tickets, while pushing the stadium’s metal fences”.

Stadium security then closed all entrances and called the police, who arrested 14 of them.
