Four day remand for fatal hit-and-run suspect

The Limassol Court on Friday remanded a pensioner suspected of being the driver in a hit-and-run accident that left a cyclist dead in custody for four days.

According to the police, the vehicle was tracked down and its 76-year-old driver, a Greek Cypriot man, arrested on Thursday. The car, a double-cabin truck, is undergoing tests to confirm it is the same one that hit cyclist Panagiotis Hadjinikolas, 33, from Zakaki.
