Three people were remanded at district courts on Saturday, while another 11 were arrested by police for illegal entry into Cyprus.

Police said that during an operation from 4am to 9am on Saturday carried out by the immigration departments in Paphos, Limassol, and Nicosia HQ, 32 individuals were checked, 11 of whom were arrested, five for illegally working, four for illegally residing in Cyprus, one for illegally residing and appearance on a stop list, and one for illegal entry.

Complaints were also filed against two employers, who illegally employed immigrants, police said.

In another incident, the Larnaca District Court issued a five-day remand order for two individuals, regarding the circulation of a fraudulent document, impersonation, and illegal entry.

Nicosia District Court also ordered another individual – suspected of circulating a fraudulent document, impersonation, and illegal entry – be remanded into custody for eight days.
