Murder investigation after man ran over by car (Updated)

A 34-year-old man suspected of premeditated murder was remanded for eight days on Friday in Nicosia.

He had already been remanded for eight days for causing bodily harm following his arrest on September 7 but was re-remanded after his victim died as police are now treating the case as murder.

Vladimir Sialita, a resident of Nicosia, was hit by a car at 3.40pm last Friday in the Nicosia industrial area. He died from his injuries on Thursday at 3.20am.

Investigations indicate the 34-year-old suspect ran him over intentionally with his car.

The injured man was taken to Nicosia general hospital while the 34-year-old was arrested.
