A 29-year-old man from the Paphos district was remanded in custody for six days on Saturday after having set fire to a car on Friday evening.

The car was parked on a street in the village of Lemba, in the Paphos district, and was set ablaze at around 6pm on Friday.

The fire was put out, but not before the car had been completely destroyed by the flames.

Investigations led police to believe the 29-year-old set the car on fire, and he was arrested. The police added their belief that the fire was set “maliciously”.

When questioned by police, the man allegedly admitted to having set the vehicle on fire.

Their investigation into the matter is ongoing.
