In total 14 third country nationals who were illegally in Cyprus returned to their countries as part of a joint Frontex forced returned operation by charted flights, police said on Wednesday.

The flight was carried out by Greek authorities under the coordination of the European agency responsible for protecting the European Union’s borders.

Wednesday’s operation is the 11th joint Frontex forced return flight in which the Cyprus Police participated this year. So far 107 third country nationals from Cyprus returned to their home country during these joint return efforts.

Overall this year, some 7,791 persons who were illegally residing in Cyprus, have been deported or repatriated to their countries of origin, police added.
