A Russian woman sought for fraud by the Russian authorities is under arrest  and is expected to appear before Nicosia District Court on Thursday to hear their request for extradition.

The 54 year old was arrested at the Ayios Dhometios checkpoint on Wednesday evening as she was attempting to cross over from the Turkish occupied areas in her private vehicle. A police check found that an international arrest warrant issued by Russia was pending against her.
