Two people aged 22 and 28 have been arrested for trying to leave the country through Paphos airport under false pretences, police said on Wednesday.

On Tuesday a man with a Dutch identity card tried to leave for Germany but passport control noticed the person on the card was not the same person. Under questioning, the 22-year-old admitted it was not him.

In a second case Tuesday afternoon, a man aged 28 tried to leave for Brussels with a French passport that was not his. He also admitted it was not him in the passport when he was questioned.

Both are due in court on Wednesday.
