The Cypriot government is all set to deport 17 migrants for having links with terrorist organizations.
The government recently announced that the 17, who were arrested on the basis of suspicion of having links to extremist groups or being part of terror activities were being held in a detention centre.
They will be deported once the transport system is back online after the end of the coronavirus lockdowns and restrictions.
According to a statement by the ministry, the information of the individuals’ involvement in terror groups was verified by Interpol and Europol. Both organizations iterated that these people either belonged to extremist groups, or were directly involved in acts of terrorism.
