Police in their effort to administer effective crime prevention in the tourist areas of Protaras and Ayia Napa, carried out coordinated operations with members from Ayia Napa and Paralimni police stations, including members of crime investigation units, rapid response units, immigration police and Famagusta traffic police.

Of the 35 reports filed, three pertain to operating premises without a licence, three for selling alcoholic beverages without licence, 14 for operating premises without a licence to broadcast music, eight for operating premises in violation of closing hours and seven for operating premises and selling beverages in violation of licence conditions.

Police in their effort to combat illegal employment, also arrested eight third-country nationals found to be working without the relevant permit, while two of them were also found to be illegally residing in the Republic. Their employers were also charged in writing and are expected to appear in court at a later date.

Police will continue coordinated operations throughout the tourist season.
