The scene of the initial murder

A case has been filed at the Limassol district court against a 43-year-old man who allegedly threatened and attacked a 47-year-old inside the court building on Monday.

The complainant is the brother of one of the suspects involved in a double homicide that occurred on June 29, 2023, following a brawl in Ypsonas, which claimed the lives of 44-year-old Mario Onisiforou and 51-year-old Michalis Michail.

According to the police, following the complaint filed by the victim, the suspect was arrested, and a case of causing actual bodily harm and threats was filed against him. The case was scheduled for hearing on March 22.

He was subsequently released and a restraining order prohibiting him from approaching the complainant within a distance of less than 200 meters was issued.

The 43-year-old, who allegedly assaulted the 47-year-old, is the same individual whom the victims had intervened to assist on the fatal night, following a scuffle outside a bar.

During the altercation, they sustained stab wounds, resulting in their deaths.
