The Paphos District Court issued a four-day detention order on Sunday against two women for cases of impersonation.

According to spokesperson and head of the Paphos criminal investigations unit, Michalis Nikolaou, on Saturday a woman bound for Rome presented herself at Paphos airport in possession of a French passport.

The passport was genuine, but the features of the photo did not resemble the person who presented it. Police proceeded to arrest and detain the woman.

On Sunday, another woman whose features also did not match those in the French ID photo she presented, arrived at Paphos airport bound for Germany. The woman was likewise arrested and taken into custody.

Investigations continue.
