The 57-year-old man wanted under European arrest warrant, who was arrested when he arrived in Paphos airport, was released on bail on Wednesday.

Police arrested the suspect during a passport check when he arrived in Paphos airport at 5.20pm on Tuesday.

The man is of Ukrainian descent and a permanent resident of Israel. He is wanted by Interpol for fraud related crimes committed in 2010 in Ukraine.

A temporary arrest warrant was issued against him in Cyprus and he was held in custody.

The suspect will report to police daily until he is extradited to Ukraine.
