According to initial information the woman – wanted for a case involving the death of a 17-year-old boy killed in a car accident – was arrested after Greek authorities received information from Nicosia’s Interpol office.
In the 2007 accident that killed Aimilios Ioannou, Erodotou is said to have fled the scene after she hit a motorcycle being driven by the boy.
Media reports from the time said that Erodotou was given a breathalyzer test, which showed a blood alcohol content of 70 mg instead of the legally allowed limit of 22 mg.
After being brought to justice, she was set free after falsified evidence was allegedly put forward in court.
The case was reopened in 2009 by the Attorney General, but Erodotou had disappeared.
