Paphos police HQ

Seven people are under investigation for illegal employment following checks carried out by Paphos police over the weekend, with two asylum seekers found working at a Peyia hotel.

The bust at the hotel on Friday saw the two asylum seekers taken into custody and later released after their file was processed, with their employer – a Greek Cypriot – also written up.

Assistant Paphos police chief Michalis Ioannou said on Monday that checks carried out on Sunday identified an asylum seeker working illegally as a construction worker who was later written up along with their employer.

The checks, carried out with the assistance of migration services officials, uncovered another asylum seeker also working at a construction site whose case is still being processed. As such, the asylum seeker was working illegally.

A 36-year-old who allegedly employed the asylum seeker was also written up.
