Three people were arrested in Limassol on Tuesday believed to be involved in cases of illegal stay in the Republic and document forgery, while a further 17 are being sought.

On March 20, the director of the Limassol citizens service centre reported that between December 8, 2022 and March 3, as many as 20 applications to obtain driving licences appeared suspicious.

Upon further investigations, carried out by the Aliens and Immigrations Services, it emerged that all 20 applicants presented fake permanent residency permits (MEU2).

Police identified all 20 applicants and arrested three of them on Tuesday.

Arrest warrants have been issued for all the remaining wanted individuals.
