Larnaca district court has renewed the remand order for the four suspects, allegedly involved in the shooting in Ayia Napa on June 23, Sigma TV reported from the scene.
The suspects remanded into custody for another eight days are Marios Christodoulou (known as ‘Benny’), Panayiotis Pentafkas (the owner of the restaurant in Ayia Napa), Sofia Grigoriou (Benny’s wife), and the Serbian bodyguard of the victim Fanos Kalopsidiotis.
Security at the court, was extremely tight, with the suspects and the police showing up in bullet-proof vests.
Authorities were also armed at the scene as the suspects entered the court.
Two more suspects had been remanded into custody for another eight days earlier this week, as they are purported to have been hiding one of the assailants of the attack.
Police are continuing the search for Aleks Burelli, the Albanian claimed to be one of the assailants at the shooting. The other assailant had died in the gun fire that broke out. Fanos Kalopsidiotis, a couple, and the assailant were all killed in the incident on June 23.
