The Nicosia district court on Thursday issued bans from sports venues and financial guarantees to six individuals who were arrested on September 17 prior to the start of a football match between Apoel and Apollon in Nicosia.

According to a police statement, the bans prohibit the six individuals from entering sports or competition venues or attending sports events until the full conclusion of the case. The personal financial guarantees amount to €3,000 for five of them and €5,000 for a 27-year-old suspect.

The arrests occurred as fans of both teams gathered at GSP Stadium in Nicosia. Police inspections revealed that they were in possession of offensive weapons, explosive materials and small quantities of narcotics.
