Α 78-year old man is wanted by the police after a Greek-Cypriot woman, who resides in the United Kingdom, reported to the police that he might have embezzled €1.44 million from her bank account.

According to Phileleftheros, the crime is believed to have taken place between 2009-2013.

Τhe woman named her 78 year-old brother-in-law – who holds a power of attorney to manage her bank account and property in Cyprus – as the main suspect.
