Police have released a professional soldier arrested more than a week ago in connection with an explosion at a telecommunications company (Cyta) branch in Limassol in December, it emerged on Wednesday.

The 27-year-old was released due to lack of evidence, an army spokesman said.

The soldier was detained after a December 13 improvised explosive device blast at a Cyta shop and a petrol bomb attack at a nearby Hellenic Bank branch.

Two slogans were also sprayed on the walls of the Cyta shop, one reading ‘No to 5G’ and the second ‘There is a resistance’.

Police believe it may be the same people who a little later attempted to set fire to Limassol Municipality’s Christmas tree in Gregori Afxentiou Square.
