Former community leader of Stroumbi, Paphos, Myros Yiangou was sentenced to nine months in prison for forgery-related offences, on Thursday.

Yiangou, who also served as secretary of the community’s Cooperative Bank was found guilty on six charges.

Αccording to Paphos District Court, in 2014, while serving as secretary of Stroumbi’s Cooperative, Yiangou requested the minutes of meetings, during which cases for which he was under investigation had been discussed.
