Police are seeking a Slovakian man in connection with Monday’s attempted murder of Nicos Rodotheou in Nicosia.

Authorities are asking the public’s help in locating Miroslav Balazovjech, 37.

He may be using the alias Rudolf Dydi.

The man is described as being of average build and 1.70m tall.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts should contact Nicosia CID at 22802222, their nearest police station, or call the citizens hotline at 1460.

Three men are already under arrest for the attempt on the life of 57-year-old Rodotheou that took place on Monday evening in the Pallouriotissa area in Nicosia.

Unknown individuals on a motorcycle fired five shots at the rear of Rodotheou car, but missed.

The assailants then fled the scene.

Rodotheou is the brother of businessman Andros Rodotheou who was gunned down while at a friend’s house at the village of Gerasa, Limassol in April last year.
