A 49-year-old man was arrested in Paphos for allegedly preventing officers from carrying out a Covid measures check at his son’s business, police said on Thursday.

According to police deputy chief in Paphos Michalis Ioannou, the man was found at a hairdressing salon where officers went at around 4.30pm on Wednesday to check for any violations of the coronavirus protocols.

He allegedly prevented officers from carrying out the inspection and obstructed the performance of their duties, Ioannou said.

The man, who was also the father of the business’ owner, was taken to the police station, charged in writing and then released pending his court appearance.

Police fined the establishment €500 because the owner was not wearing a face mask, had no SafePass and there was no coronavirus signage visible at the salon.
