Syrian to be sentenced over Chlorakas incidents

Events in Chlorakas in August

Paphos court is to announce sentence against the 47-year-old Syrian man who threatened to “turn Paphos upside down” in relation to the Chlorakas incidents during the summer on October 30.

The 47-year-old appeared before the court on Tuesday, where he faces charges of intimidation and will remain in custody until his sentence.

It was previously reported that the 47-year-old was arrested following riots in Chlorakas between migrants and Greek Cypriots far-right extremists.

It soon emerged that the 47-year-old, who had previously attended a meeting with Justice Minister Anna Procopiou and the police chief, had also been arrested after he tested positive in a narcotest.

Later that evening after going viral on social media, he spoke on camera and apologised, attributing his outburst to stress and anxiety from the volatile situation.
