Police, acting on a tip-off, stopped a van two nights ago, near Kirklar village travelling towards Ercan airport area.

A search of the van found over 180 kilos of meat and the two occupants, Ibrahim Kedi and Sabri Yildirim were arrested.

Both suspects appeared at Nicosia court yesterday. Police testified that a number of statements and signed confessions had been made and were being verified. The police’s initial conclusion is that the meat was smuggled in from the South.

Judge Fadil Aksun ordered that the two suspects be held for two days while police conclude their investigation.
