A 42-year-old Greek Cypriot was arrested at the Pergamos crossing point in the north after being found to have been using forged car insurance documents.

Further inspection of his vehicle also turned up “LSD-type” drugs and €25,050 in cash.

The arrest comes two and a half months after another Greek Cypriot was sentenced to six months in prison for using forged car insurance documents.

In sentencing the man at the time, judge Vedia Berkut Barkin stressed the “importance” of car insurance, “both for individuals’ own safety, and for the safety of other road users.”

She added that the sentence handed down must be “a sufficient deterrent to others who may consider committing such crimes.”
