Rape suspect sought in Russia arrested
A 52-year-old man wanted on an international arrest warrant on suspicion of rape was arrested on arrival at Larnaca airport, police said on Tuesday.
The suspect arrived on the island from abroad at around 3.30pm on Monday.
Airport authorities, who realised the 52-year-old was wanted on suspicion of rape, arrested the man.
The alleged crime was committed in Russia where local authorities issued an international arrest warrant against him and informed Interpol.
He is expected to appear before Larnaca district court later on Tuesday to start his extradition process to the Russian authorities.
