Cigarette smugglers re-offend

8 March 2013

Three men who were released on bail for cigarette smuggling were arrested again for the same offence.

Last week, Yunus Can, Mehmet Kundarci and Faruk Kundarci appeared in court charged with cigarette smuggling. They had been released on bail but were back in court again yesterday, having been arrested for the same offence. Because they had broken their bail conditions, this time they were ordered to be detained in prison until their court hearing comes up.

The three men were arrested in their rooms at the Golden Pension in Nicosia. They were found to be in possession of 29 cartons of cigarettes.
