Two people have been remanded in police custody for four days after they were arrested on Sunday for illegal impersonation and aiding and abetting illegal entry, stay and transit through the Republic of Cyprus.

According to the police, two Congalese nationals, aged 53 and 20, presented themselves at Larnaca Airport at around 2pm to depart for a European destination. During passport control, it was found that the travel documents presented by the 20-year-old depicted someone else.

She was taken to the airport police office for questioning and allegedly said the specific travel documents belonged to her 53-year-old uncle.

Upon further questioning, the older man confessed that the travel documents belonged to his daughter and he had given them to the 20-year-old. The suspects were arrested and detained.

On Monday they were taken to Larnaca District court where they were remanded for four days.
