Online gambling Israelis arrested by Cypriot police

Allegations of operating an illegal sports betting website, supplying pirated cable

Israel News reports that police in Larnaca, Cyprus have detained five Israeli citizens on suspicion of operating an illegal sports betting website, and supplying pirated cable television. The five suspects have denied all charges.

The five suspects were resident in an apartment in the nearby town of Oroklini when police visited the premises with a search warrant, uncovering eight satellite dishes which were illegally connected, according to the police report.

Police Sergeant Lefki Salomandros told local media that during the search further evidence was uncovered, which was presented to a court Friday and led to the remand in custody of the Israelis. The Israeli Foreign Ministry had been made aware of the detentions.

"The moment the suspects realised that the police were on to them, they tried to hide evidence," said Sergeant Salomandros. "They cut the pirate connections."

No further details were available when InfoPowa went to press.
