The woman’s blood alcohol measured 119mg when the limit is 22mg.  According to police, shortly after 8pm on January 23, Famagusta traffic police stopped the woman’s car on a street in Paralimni.

A case was filed against the 42-year-old and she appeared in court on Tuesday, where she was  bailed for €1,000 until her trial date on February 25.
