A 50-year-old woman was remanded for six days at Limassol district court on Wednesday for allegedly embezzling almost €80,000 through her position at Kyperounda hospital.

The woman was arrested on Tuesday night at her home where some €10,000 in cash was as well as a large number of receipt blocks for medicine and lab tests from 2015.
