Salman arrived in the TRNC in 2015 and worked at several different jobs. He became unemployed in June 2018 which made it illegal for him to remain in the country.

It was learned that Salman had confided in a friend that he had done something bad and had to get out of the country. 

He said he would try and get to Limassol in south Cyprus as he tired to leave the TRNC illegally.
