Two men, aged 34 and 45, have been jailed for ten years by the Limassol Criminal Court after being found guilty of importing and possessing 20 kilos of cannabis.

The two were arrested in October 2016 after the drug squad discovered cardboard cartons containing 20 one kilo packets of cannabis that had been imported from Greece.

In passing sentence the court cited the seriousness of the offence and the need for strict penalties that will act as a deterrent.
