Police have made five arrests for illegal employment after an overnight operation in Nicosia.
A police announcement said immigration officers had inspected nine premises and checked 57 non-Cypriots — 42 employees and 15 guests. Four people were found to be working illegally. They and an employer were arrested, taken to a police station where they were charged in writing and released to appear later in court.
During the operation, another individual was arrested for illegal residence in the Republic of Cyprus.
