Paphos man who shot his son released on bail

Paphos District Court

A 66-year-old man from the Paphos district who is being tried for attempting to murder his 44-year-old son on November 24 last year was released conditionally by the Paphos criminal court on Wednesday.

The 66-year-old was taken to the court from the central prisons where he was being held.

The defendant pleaded not guilty to the four charges he is facing before being released conditionally upon the request of his lawyer Demetris Pavlides.

The 66-year-old signed a guarantee of a total of €100,000 through two credible guarantors. The defendant was also placed on the stop list, asked to hand in his travel documents, and must present himself daily at the Stroumbi police station.

The court set the hearing for his case to begin on May 31.

The son was injured in the left shoulder and arm after the 64-year-old allegedly shot him with a hunting rifle.
