Father of suspect accountant remanded for seven days

Limassol district court

Police have detained the 73-year-old father of an accountant suspected of stealing thousands of euros from the group of companies she worked for.

The suspect was remanded in custody for seven days by the Limassol court, joining his daughter, 49, and her husband, 63.

Police initially arrested the woman after it was found out that between 2017 and 2020, 50 forged cheques worth €60,105 on the 73-year-old’s name.

Authorities said they have secured the original cheques from the bank where the man deposited them to his personal account.

The 49-year-old has so far been remanded in custody for eight days four times. He husband was also remanded in custody for eight days last Saturday.

He was arrested after his signature was found on the back of forged cheques worth over €20,000, issued to the name of his wife, himself, as well as former and current employees of the company.

Investigators were currently examining an amount of around €4.5m.
