POLICE yesterday issued a four-day remand for 40-year-old Pavlos Kyriacou from Limassol after he tried to sell a house that did not belong to him to a British citizen.

Kyriacou agreed to selling the property to the man in July 2005 for the total sum of £110,000.

According to reports, the British man gave Kyriacou a down-payment of £60,000 through his lawyer, but became increasingly suspicious when the 40-year-old did not respond to any of his calls.

The man then decided to take matters into his own hands and came to Cyprus where he discovered that the house did not belong to Kyriacou but to a 50-year-old Nicosia citizen.

He then reported the case to the police who arrested Kyriacou.
