A Pakistani man was arrested by Nicosia police for illegal residency in the TRNC.
Syed Shah has been living illegally in the TRNC for the past five years. During this period he has had many jobs and even got married. However he was finally caught by Nicosia police a few days ago.
Mr Shah initially entered the TRNC in February 2008 and has told police that he is very happy here and “would rather die than go back.”
He appeared at Nicosia court earlier today and was ordered to be detained for two days while police investigate his activities over the past five years.
