23 April 2013

Ibrahim Ozyuksel, nickname ‘cockroach’, appeared at Nicosia criminal court yesterday for a preliminary hearing.

The police testified at the hearing that Ozyuksel was caught attempting to enter the TRNC through an illegal crossing. He was arrested and a search revealed that he was using false identity papers.

Ozyuksel had broken into a house in Nicosia on February 18th 2012 where he had stolen cash and a revolver. He had used the proceeds of the crime to buy heroin.

The judge ordered that he be remanded in custody for a period of two months until his case comes to court.
