A 23-year-old man was sentenced to three-and-a-half years in prison on Tuesday over an arson attack in Larnaca last summer.

The Larnaca-Famagusta criminal court found the man guilty of stealing a car and then setting it on fire on July 4 last year.

At the time, police was notified that on the Larnaca-Limassol highway near Klavdia a car was on fire.

The vehicle had been reported stolen since June 22, 2022. The perpetrator was arrested on July 8.
