Ayia Napa shooting suspects back in court

Six people suspected of being involved in the Ayia Napa shooting this summer are on Monday due to appear before Larnaca-Famagusta Criminal Court.

The six– four men and two women– are suspected of being involved in the shooting of Phanos Theofanous Kalopsidiotis, 51, and married couple Elias and Skevi Hadjiefthymiou, aged 46 and 39 respectively, at an Ayia Napa restaurant on June 23.

One of the shooters, Albanian national Ganis Vogli, 41, also died in the attack after being shot by the other assailant, Aleks Burelli – a 48-year old Albanian national, who remains at large.

The six due to appear in court on Monday have been implicated in a series of crimes police say were committed between May 8 and June 27, in both Ayia Napa and Nicosia.

Marios ‘Benny’ Christodoulou, 39, Panayiotis Pentafkas, 38, Loy Dejan, 42, Sophia Gregoriou, 28, Sotira Neofytou, 30, and Charalambos Andreou, 32, face 20 charges including conspiracy to murder, premeditated murder and attempted murder.
