Eight-day remand for suspected drug smuggler

A 35-year-old man was remanded for eight days on Thursday in connection with smuggling some five kilos of cannabis through the post.

The suspect was arrested after Greek customs found the Cyprus-bound package at Athens airport containing 5.4 kilos of cannabis.

After informing police on the island, the package was sent to Cyprus where the drug squad tracked down the 35-year-old.

Limassol district court remanded the suspect, reportedly a special education teacher, an eight-day remand. He denies any involvement and his lawyer did not contest the remand order.

He was arrested in Limassol on Wednesday and faces charges including illegally importing, possessing, and possession with intent to supply drugs.
