He came from Istanbul as Ahmet Ikiz but attempted to leave Ercan as Celal Abek.
Ikiz arrived at Ercan airport on 23 November to board a Turkish Airlines flight to London. However, at passport control he showed papers including a tourist visa for England under the name of Celal Abek. He was arrested there and has since been in Court and will be detained while police continue their investigations.
The police have already determined that the tourist visa is a fake and that Ikiz bought flight tickets for both names, using one credit card. They have also found the original papers for Ikiz in the toilets of the arrival hall.
