The labour ministry fined six employers with €28,500 for illegal employment after a sting operation was carried out by police in the Larnaca and Famagusta areas.

Officers of the Migration Department carried out checks for illegal employment during which they investigated nine employers and 87 workers, 46 of them European citizens, 26 third-country nationals and 15 citizens of Cyprus.

Of the 26 third-country nationals, seven were found to be working illegally and were immediately arrested while their five employers were charged for illegal employment.

Two of the third-country nationals were found to have entered the country illegally and they are being held in custody while their employer was also charged.

Last week, police also arrested 24 illegal workers in different towns and the labour ministry charged 12 employers.
