According to Turkish Cypriot daily ‘Kibris Postasi’, the Syrian refugees had paid, in total, 14,500 dollars to the smugglers in order to bring them over to South Cyprus. The refugees were conveyed by boat from Mersin, Turkey to the TRNC.

A warrant was issued against them while the mother and her three children were transferred to a hotel.
