Ejder Aslanbaba the MP who it is alleged received a bribe had been banned from leaving the TRNC. Earlier this week he was barred from crossing over to the South at the Lokmaci crossing.

Yesterday, Mr Aslanbaba was in court to dispute the validity of the ban. His lawyer maintained that the ban was illegal because his client had not been as yet charged with any offences. Police investigations were at an early stage and felt that the ban was inappropriate.

Nicosia court revoked the ban that had been requested by the Attorney General.
