Fanieros, 67, was arrested during a police sting last week in connection to various alleged criminal offences, including participation in a criminal organisation.

A further two men, 25-year-old Costantinos Xadjiantonis and 26-year-old Syrian, Adnan Al Amdal were also remanded yesterday for six days.

They are thought to be linked to Fanieros.

The police plan to take over 80 testimonies from collaborators and acquaintances.

They are also trying to locate individuals in order to take testimonies from them.

A total of 26 different cases are being investigated mostly for criminal acts which took place between 2010 and 2011.

Five police investigators are on the case.
