Handcuffs 03

The Larnaca district court sentenced a 34-year-old man to three months in prison on Wednesday for drink-driving, plus another month for driving while his licence was suspended.

“On October 26 at around 1pm, police officers stopped a car driven by a foreigner as it was making too much noise,” the head of the Larnaca traffic police Haris Hadjiyiasemi said.

“Upon inspection, they found out that the man was driving while his licence was suspended.

“Furthermore, after undergoing a test, it was revealed his alcohol level was over three times the allowed limit.”

The man was immediately arrested and remanded in custody both for driving under the influence and for disobeying a court order that revoked his driving licence for a month.

He admitted to both charges in front of the Larnaca district court on October 27 and remained in custody until his final sentence on Wednesday was pronounced.
The 34-year-old was taken to the Larnaca district court, which sentenced him to one month in prison and deprivation of a driver’s licence for three months, for the offences of driving under the influence of alcohol and for driving a vehicle with a driver’s licence.
