Then, as stated, an investigation was carried out, based on a court warrant, at the home of 27-year-old in Limassol, where a mobile phone and a laptop computer were found and seized for further scientific tests.

The 27-year-old was arrested, based on a court warrant, and brought before the Limassol district court, which issued a four-day detention order, while he allegedly admitted to committing the offences.

The cybercrime unit is continuing its investigations.
