A 32-year old Apoel fan seen on video giving the Nazi salute during his team’s match against Omonia on Monday was on Friday given a fine of €250 and banned from attending any game for six months.
The fan, a Larnaca resident, appeared before the Nicosia district court.
He was recorded giving the salute by rival fans and the video was immediately sent to the authorities.
The law on prevention and combating violence in sports venues bans racist or abusive symbols, slogans, speech, gestures, and speeches.
The 32-year-old was identified using information from a fan database and footage from the GSP stadium’s security cameras.
