Trial for three men suspected of homeless scam postponed

Limassol district court

The trial of three men from Limassol suspected of involvement in a scam that cheated the state of at least €35,000 over aid for the homeless has been postponed to June 17.

The three, aged 56, 57 and 66, were arrested last October, along with a 75-year-old man suspected of lying about being homeless, whose case was handled separately.

The suspects are the head of an organisation that purportedly helps the homeless, the owner of a hotel and an employee.

Two of them asked for legal aid from the state, which requires the submission of a report by the welfare office, which delayed the start of the trial.
