Two more women arrested in trafficking case

POLICE on Thursday arrested two more women in connection with an investigation into a suspected prostitution operation in Limassol.

The two suspects, both foreign nationals, aged 30 and 50, are expected to appear before a court on Friday where police will ask that they be remanded in their custody.

Three individuals have already been arrested in connection with the same case: two Greek men, aged 52 and 60, and a 36-year-old Moldavian woman.

Police are expected to ask for an extension on their remand.

Acting on a tip, last Wednesday police in Limassol searched 14 apartments in three locations. They discovered and seized as evidence €1,640 in cash, a large number of condoms and mobile phones, four grams of cannabis and a number of credit cards.

Police had also identified four women believed to have been victims of human trafficking.
