A British tourist has been jailed for a year after a Cypriot court convicted him over the hit-and-run death of a Swedish mother in a holiday resort on the island.
The Famagusta district court also revoked the 25-year-old’s driving licence for 18 months on Friday, but authorities did not release his name.
The Briton was involved in the killing of Camilla Christina Pamdahl, 46, who was on holiday with her five-year-old daughter, on 4 May.
She was the victim of a fatal hit-and-run accident at a pedestrian crossing in Ayia Napa, a popular resort known for attracting British tourists every summer.
The Briton was found guilty of causing death due to a reckless or dangerous act, driving a vehicle under the influence of drugs, abandoning the scene of an accident and failing to report it.
He was driving a rented beach buggy at the time of the accident and fled the scene on foot, leaving the vehicle behind.
Police said the driver was nearly five times over the legal alcohol limit of 9mg with a test reading of 44mg. He also tested positive for cannabis in his system when arrested.
