Police on Friday said they arrested a 44-year-old Famagusta resident based on a European warrant issued for employee theft and money laundering.

The crime was reported to the police on October 5, 2019, which concerned employee theft amounting to €22,784, obtaining money and goods by false pretences, forgery and circulation of a forged document and money laundering.

Evidence emerged against the specific man, who was said to have left Cyprus for another European country.

Then, local authorities issued a European arrest warrant against the suspect.

The 44-year-old was arrested by international authorities abroad on August 8, while officers from Famagusta CID travelled to the specific country on Wednesday.

The suspect, accompanied by the police, arrived in the island early on Friday.

He is expected to appear in court to be remanded later in the day, police said.
