He was also docked seven points put off his driving licence which has, in addition, been suspended for 12 months.

The court deemed the defendant responsible for an April 17, 2013 traffic incident on Limassol’s Makarios III Avenue that resulted in the death of 52-year-old motorcyclist Neophytos Georgiou.
