The Greek Cypriot arrested in the north for attempting to cross the Ayios Dometios crossing point with counterfeit car insurance documents was denied bail at a court hearing on Thursday.

The man, aged 42, had first appeared in court on Wednesday and was the second Greek Cypriot to be arrested for counterfeiting car insurance documents in the space of a week.

He told the court in northern Nicosia that he wished to apologise for his actions and requested to be released on bail.

However, judge Zehra Yalkut Bilgec said he had “no legal status” in the north and ordered he be remanded subject to a trial. He was therefore remanded for a period not exceeding one month.
