A 35-year-old man working at Limassol general hospital has been remanded in custody for seven days on suspicion of stealing €4,000 from a 77-year old ICU patient who later died.
The Cyprus News Agency said the 35-year-old suspect worked at the hospital, which gave him access to the patient.
The complaint was filed by the relatives of the deceased who noticed after his death that €1500 in cash was missing. Also missing was a credit card which had been used for online purchases of €2500.
The suspect was arrested on Sunday and taken to court on Monday.
The alleged offences are said to have taken place between August 5 and September 23.
