Three more days for Fanieros.

THE Nicosia district court will decide on Monday on whether to refer Larnaca businessman Antonis Fanieros to be tried by the Criminal Court in connection with 23 charges ranging from participation in a criminal organisation to extortion.

The 67-year-old was arrested late last month during a large police operation.

Yesterday, he appeared before the district court, where the state asked for him to be referred for trial by the Criminal Court on charges including conspiracy to commit felony, arson, participation in a criminal organisation and extortion.

Most of the alleged crimes were committed in 2010.

After over two hours, the court decided to adjourn and reconvene on Monday to decide whether to grant the state's request.

Fanieros will remain in custody until Monday.
