A 43-year-old man was referred to the Larnaca criminal court on Wednesday facing charges in connection with the trafficking of half a kilo of cocaine.
Georgios Christodoulou Zavrantonas allegedly committed the offence on May 25 last year. His trial is scheduled for October 5.
He had managed to escape to the north of the island but was returned by Turkish Cypriots through the bicommunal crime committee.
He will remain in custody until his trial.
