British Bases police said on Thursday they have reopened investigations regarding the case involving a premeditated murder of Dimitris Stavros – nicknamed “Jimmy” – which took place near the village of Ormidia on May 28, 2010.

At the time, following a tip-off, SBA officers went to check a car reported on fire near the village and found a man burnt to death in the driver’s seat.

Upon further investigations, it emerged that the man had been shot before the car was put on fire.

Following the discovery, several people in the area were questioned, but no arrests were ever made.

The decision to reopen the case is not linked to new evidence emerging, but is due to routine procedures, according to an SBA police statement.

“In reopening the file on the case, we are hoping to find the culprits and bring them to justice, thus ending the victim’s family suffering,” Lt. Markos Petrou said.

He appealed to the public to come forward should they have any information related to the case by calling the police hotline at 1443 or telephone numbers 24747900 and 24747904.
