Cyta chief Stathis Kittis was rushed to hospital yesterday after complaining of feeling unwell, as police and the attorney general deliberated on the next steps in the on-going investigation into a multi-million land scam.
Kittis who is currently in police custody in connection with the Dromolaxia property fraud case was admitted to Nicosia General Hospital where he is to undergo tests.
The head of the Accident and Emergency ward confirmed that due to a chronic medical condition Kittis will remain under the supervision of a cardiologist.
Police yesterday interviewed a new witness whose testimony, according to reports, will be vital once charges are officially launched.
Criminal investigators were yesterday briefed by Attorney General Costas Clerides on how to proceed in the case amid reports of impending new arrests, though Justice Minister Ionas Nicolaou said he was not aware of any such development.
Also in custody in connection with the case is the boss of Cyta trade union (EPOET) Orestis Vasiliou, Senior Cyta Marketing Manager Yiannis Souroullas and his brother Cytavision head Gregoris Souroullas.
They all face charges of conspiracy to commit a crime, bribery, fraud and abuse of authority.
