Five individuals held on suspicion of trying to set up a meth lab were on Friday referred to the Limassol criminal court for trial.

The first hearing was scheduled for September 2.

The three men, aged 31, 26, and 27, and two women, 35 and 23, were arrested while in the early stages of setting up a meth lab, police said.
