28 foreigners found in south Cyprus after police raid

Greek Cypriot authorities last week said it found 28 foreigners from India and Pakistan living illegally in the country.

Following a tip that foreigners are involved in the trafficking of third-country nationals who were living illegally in the country, the police proceeded with a four-hour coordinated operation, during which 28 foreigners from India and Pakistan were found.

The operation took place in Polemidia, in Limassol on Thursday afternoon and five people out of the 28 foreigners arrested have been imprisoned.

The 26 said they were renting rooms to live in the residence that belonged to a 35-year-old and a 28-year-old, paying 100 euros monthly each.

The two suspects were found in the house and were arrested after a warrant was issued against them.

In testimony, a foreigner from India said his arrival in Cyprus had been arranged through the north.

He also said that he arrived in Cyprus on 6 July and crossed to the south with other foreigners, adding that he had paid 22,000 euros.

Then he went to Limassol, where he had been staying in the said house since the end of August.
