Mr Papadopoulos’ body was removed after his grave in Nicosia was broken into overnight, officials said.
Marios Garoyan, leader of the former premier’s centre-right Diko party, condemned the act as a “heinous and terrible crime”, AFP reported.
Mr Papadopoulos died of lung cancer in Nicosia in 2008, aged 74.
The theft from the Deftera village cemetery in Nicosia was discovered a day before the first anniversary of his death.
The motive for the theft remains unclear, investigators say.
