NCFP Archive – 31st August 2010
Incredible though it may seem, on the 6th September it will be three months since AKFINANS BANK LIMITED took the unprecedented step of auctioning properties belonging to British pensioners and Turkish settlers (now TRNC citizens) after giving a mortgage to the previous owner of the land, following his selling the same to the current owners, and using land no longer available for the purpose as collateral.......

The Barak Culture Association (BCA) is dedicated to enforcing the 38th Article of the TRNC Constitution which states that entrance to beaches cannot be charged for. They are upset that with the explosion of hotels building next to publicly owned beaches, the owners of these hotels are taking these beaches for themselves and charging entrance fees for something they do not own. Locals who had previously used these beaches for free are now being denied access unless they pay up 20 TL to use them.
Having been back in the UK now for almost two years, I can honestly say the pressure and stress of living in the Turkish Republic of Nationalised Corruption is not missed one little bit. Yes of course I miss the country and the people who helped me so much, I miss the weather, I miss swimming and I miss Tamarly who sadly was called over the rainbow bridge.
Will I ever return, well they do say, never say never. Things have changed dramatically since......
I have said it before, and I will say it again. If there is a settlement and the purchasers of property in the Turkish Republic of Nationalised Corruption have to be sacrificed, they will be in a heartbeat.
We are now hearing rumours that the current President allegedly believes that the Greek Cypriots whose land has been built on and sold by Turks and Turkish Cypriots are the true owners and therefore take priority over those who came after.
If rumours resemble the truth, how short......
According to Vatan (21.08.15), Onder Sennaroglu, the TRNC Minister of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Food, water from Turkey will reach the North on October 28. Around 75 million cubic meters of water will be sent to the north from a dam in southern Turkey via a pipeline, adding that the water project, which includes a water treatment plant and water tanks, will cost 1.6 billion Turkish liras (576.3 million dollars).
Obviously, this water would have been more useful before the start of the rainy season......
The letter sent by the BRS in north Cyprus to President Akinci seems to have caught the attention of the press in the south.
Looking at the tone of the Cyprus Mail article, I would say that the concerns may be founded.Those without any apparent problems during their residency in north Cyprus may now have reason to fear for the future.
It has always seemed fairly obvious to me that the any promises made to foreign purchasers were always movable feasts and......
I wonder if Sebnem Guner Kader and her father Mustafa Guner ever saw this email sent to AKFINANS BANK LIMITED way back in July 2011?
I wonder if it would have made any difference to Mustafa Guner when he allowed my villa to be put into his name by his then son-in-law?
I doubt it, judging by the callous way the allegedly former Mrs Ertug Kader is using the photo of her standing in my driveway with her children as her cover......
When Hewlett Packard offered me Window 10 for free, I thought….yes I’ll have some of that. I did buy my laptop direct from them so I thought, this was their way of rewarding customers. Bah…I wish I had never allowed them to download it. I have had nothing but problems ever since.
My screen has reduced itself and the usual methods to enlarge it to fill the screen do not work. One being to maximise it, but of course since the little box to click onto that......
This interesting letter to TRNC President Akinci from the British Resident’s Society echoes the worries being experienced by ex-pats with property in North Cyprus, as a result of listening to rumours. Akinci has already said that property has not yet been discussed during the Cyprus Problem negotiations, but still it doesn’t hurt to find out what the TRNC President has in mind when the issue is eventually covered. With no vote, tens of thousands of property investors must be feeling helpless and......
Kulaksiz 5 v Akfinans Bank Limited
You will all remember the euphoria of the so called ‘victory’ in the District Court in Girne on the 4th December 2014.
Of course it was not unexpected that Akfinans Bank Limited would Appeal the decision. They also immediately
applied for a stay in execution of the judgement by Judge Usar until the outcome of the Appeal is known and were granted that stay.
They also applied for a Court Order to stop me going near my......
