A Limassol police officer and his wife were remanded in custody for four days on Thursday as police investigate allegations they had sexually abused a child.
The couple was arrested on Wednesday after a complaint was filed by the child’s mother, who the Cyprus News Agency reports is from their environment.
The two appeared before Limassol district court on Thursday which met behind closed doors. Both husband and wife deny the allegations.
At the instructions of police chief Stelios Papatheodorou, the police officer has been suspended pending the completion of the police investigations.
