Four men remanded over attempted murder Updated

first_imgFour people believed connected with an attempted murder on Thursday were remanded for eight days on Saturday, while three more people are wanted by police.According to a police report, the four men – a 37-year-old Albanian, his 32-year-old brother, a 26-year-old Georgian, and a 39-year-old Greek Cypriot – were reportedly involved in a shooting incident against a 50-year-old British Cypriot man and a friend of his in Limassol.The 50-year-old, a Nicosia resident, told police that on Tuesday night he had arranged to meet with the Albanian man, with whom he had financial differences.The man said he had hosted the 37-year-old in his Nicosia home in the past, and therefore suspected him of being involved in its robbery a few weeks ago, despite his denials.The purpose of the meeting, he said, was that the 37-year-old had pledged to mediate the return of property stolen from the 50-year-old’s house.On Monday, the Albanian man, along with his brother and the Georgian man, visited the 50-year-old and told him that he could retrieve some of the items stolen – in particular, three mobile phones.They arranged to meet in Limassol on Thursday so the phones could be handed over.But after arriving at the meeting point, accompanied by a friend of his, the 50-year-old said he saw the 37-year-old arrive with four other individuals.When he refused to get out of his car, as instructed, the 37-year-old drew a pistol and shot it at the driver’s door.The two men fled the scene after being shot at.Next, the 32-year-old Albanian called the 50-year-old on the phone and demanded €1.100 on behalf of “certain people” he had asked to place a bomb in his brother’s car.On Friday, police arrested the 37-year-old, while further investigation prompted the arrest of three more men, thought to be involved in the case.During investigation, police also found a loaded pistol, which was seized as evidence.Although the 37-year-old admits to being at the scene and possession of the pistol, he denied having fired it – though the car has a bullet hole consistent with the 50-year-old’s story – and claims to have gotten it from a Bulgarian man.His brother denied any involvement, while further investigation revealed that he is in Cyprus illegally because he had been deported and denied re-entry since April 2, 2015.Police are looking for the Bulgarian man who allegedly supplied the pistol, as well as three others thought to be involved in the incident.You May LikeTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionOne Thing All Liars Have in Common, Brace YourselfTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionUndoFigLeaf Beta AppGet Maximum Privacy with Minimum EffortFigLeaf Beta AppUndoThrone: Free Online GamesPlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addicted!Throne: Free Online GamesUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoTwo arrested in connection with attempted murderUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img
