Turkish Cypriot remanded in land selling scam

A Turkish Cypriot man was remanded for three days by a court in the north for allegedly deceiving a Greek Cypriot couple into giving him €30,000 after he promised to help them sell their property in the north to Israeli buyers, Yeni Duzen reported on Tuesday.

The suspect was arrested by authorities in the north after Sotiris Christodoulou and Vasiliki Irakleous filed a report claiming that they had handed the title deeds for two properties they own in Lapithos and Morphou to a Turkish Cypriot man who had promised to sell them off for high sums to buyers from Israel.

According to their report, Yeni Duzen said the Turkish Cypriot had asked for money to cover his expenses in the process, after which the couple gave him €30,000.

The suspect appeared before a court on Monday, which imposed a three-day remand to facilitate further investigations.
