Ten people, accused of being allegedly involved in the attempted murder of Demetris Andronikou, aka Demetroui, who was shot at from a motorbike in broad daylight on April 23, appeared in front of the Nicosia district court on Wednesday to be remanded.

In addition to the nine people who were already in custody, one of whom is an inmate at the Nicosia central prisons, police spokesperson Christos Andreou told the Cyprus Mail that another person suspected of being involved in the case was arrested and brought before the Nicosia district court on Wednesday and is set to be remanded.

According to the police, he is a Syrian national. One more suspect is still at large and being sought by authorities.

Andronikou sustained wounds to the neck and is still in critical but stable condition in hospital.

The weapon used had so far remained elusive and a burned motorbike reported found in Aglantzia was being investigated for links to the case.

The victim at the time was reported as “well known” to police.
