Four remanded after trying to travel under false pretences

Paphos court

Four people were remanded by the Paphos court on Sunday for five days, two for alleged impersonation using travel documents and the other two for other offences including aiding and abetting.

Police said the four presented themselves at Paphos airport on Saturday morning as a family travelling to another EU country.

During passport control, two of them, a man and a woman, presented original passports, which were found to be genuine.

The other two persons, a woman aged 23 and a man aged 28, presented passports, which were found to be genuine. However, the photos showed persons other than the two people presenting the passports. The man, reports said, had tried to disguise himself as a woman to match the details on the passport.

Both were arrested. Police also arrested the other two people with the genuine passports, a man and a woman aged 46 and 47 for conspiracy to commit a felony and aiding the illegal entry and transit and stay of third-country nationals in the Republic.

The four were brought to court on Sunday and remanded for five days.
