The Police neither know nor requested the extradition of the two persons who were handcuffed to the occupied territories as suspects in the Kalogeropoulos-Mavromichalis murders – They are not related, the Police say – One was in custody when Kalogeropoulos was murdered, the other arrived after the two crimes
He neither requested the extradition of persons from the so-called authorities of the pseudo-state through the competent bi-communal crime commission, nor does he know anything in relation to the two persons who were “arrested” in the occupied territories and in particular at the illegal airport.
The news that was published exclusively on the Turkish Cypriot website Haber Kibris, is not confirmed by the Police of the Republic and there is currently at least no knowledge of the reasons for the arrest of the two and certainly not why the Turkish Cypriot press is linking the two persons to the two murders of Thanasis Kalogeropoulos and Alexis Mavromichalis.
Specifically, the Turkish Cypriot website writes that “two men, allegedly involved in the murders of Kalogeropoulos and Mavromichalis, tried to escape from the illegal airport of the occupied Tymbou yesterday in a private jet, but were noticed by the “police” and “were arrested, they were interrogated, taken to the central prisons” in the pseudo-state and there is contact with the Authorities of the Republic on the matter, through the UN”.
In fact, in the publication, there is talk of “Polish-Russian connections” of the two persons.
Haber Kibris adds that the objects found in the possession of the two persons have been received as evidence and there is communication with the Police of the Republic of Cyprus through the UN, which is also not confirmed.
