A man was arrested last week, nine years after he stole 33 mobile phones from his then employer.
Yesterday Zafer Alibay appeared at Nicosia court. Police testified that in September 2004 he stole 33 mobile phones while working for Akar Telecom and sold them direct to customers for his own gain.
Police pointed out that Mr Albay is currently in the TRNC with a tourist visa. The judge released Alibay on TL 15,000 bail until a court date for his trial can be arranged.
