LARNACA – A 57 year old Larnaca businessman and a 35 year old from Oroklini were remanded in custody for six days on Thursday as police investigate corruption of a minor and people trafficking.
The two were arrested after a 15 year old complained to police that the 35 year old suspect, whom she had met on a social media site, had taken her against her will to his flat in Nicosia and raped her. She said that there was also a 14 year old girl, who was to be paid for sex, with whom the 35 year old also had sex.
The suspect then took the two girls to a Larnaca flat where the same thing occurred with the participation of the 57 year old.
The 57 year old is under investigation for conspiracy to commit a crime, offences in violation of the law on people trafficking and corrupting a minor.
The 35 year old is under investigation for violating article 6 on the trafficking of children, abduction, rape, causing real bodily harm among other.
Police found drugs in the Nicosia flat and are looking for the 14 year old. The 35 year old denied he had abducted the two girls and said everything had occurred with their consent.
