North Cyprus Property Victims | NCA v Gary Robb

robb 150x93 North  Cyprus Property Victims | NCA v Gary RobbYou will recall I wrote about the NCA v Gary Robb back in June and at that time the date for the case was not known.¹

Within this blog were the details on how to join the case, I have no idea anyone did or if their applications to join were successful.

The case will commence on Tuesday 2nd December 2014.

It is hard to believe one man with the collaboration of many Turkish Cypriots wreaked so much havoc in the lives of so many innocent victims.

The above is just one avenue being pursued by his hapless victims. You will recall that many are waiting, and waiting and waiting on the TRNC government to amend the Citizenship law and in doing so, they say, help the victims. This was scheduled to be before the Parliament in September, it is now late November and still they are waiting. If there is anything the TRNC excel at, it is delaying tactics.

The case that is allegedly lodged with Washington court is still, I am told, awaiting a hearing.

I did hear of a case put to the ECHR under its pilot scheme, and this allegedly was thrown out.

How much more are the victims of Gary Robb going to have to endure?

Indeed how much more are all property victims in the TRNC going to have to endure?

Never give in never give up.

North Cyprus Forums | What Makes a Good Forum?

cyprus44 broke North Cyprus Forums | What Makes a Good Forum?North Cyprus Forums – What Makes a Good Forum?

I have just done a trawl of Cyprus Forums resulting in my usual yawns at their contents. Love it or hate it Cyprus44 was a much loved forum, the sheer number of forum members and their commitment over many years was testimony to its success. Sadly there are no longer any forums that match the variety of topics, discussions and wealth of information that C44 offered.

I feel that some of the existing forums suffer from being too cliquey, their users being so like minded that if one person happens to have a different outlook they are ostracised. Lively debate, lots of different opinions and a variety of topics are in my opinion what make a good forum. Not the same stuff over and over again. There is also a problem with over moderation and moderators being so biased that all interesting debate is stifled.

What in your opinion makes a good forum?

North Cyprus Law | Recommending an Advocate

no way 150x150 North Cyprus Law | Recommending an AdvocateWITHOUT PREJUDICE

North Cyprus Law – Recommending an Advocate

I recently received an inbox FaceBook message from a legal firm in Azerbaijan. The correspondent was asking for advice on advocates in north Cyprus, if I could recommend any. That of course is a very difficult question for me personally to answer.

He has a client who needs representation in north Cyprus but, like most of us, has found that getting information from most advocates is like get blood out of a stone. It seems that once you become a client and you have paid your fee up front, all responsibility to keep you informed goes out of the window. The only information you get has to be almost begged for. Sitting with you, discussing a strategy for your case is unknown.

Keeping your client fully informed should be a top priority of any legal professional and in most civilised countries it is. Why then do the majority of advocates in north Cyprus think it is acceptable not to communicate wit their client?

The only exception to this, in my experience has been the current K5 legal representative, who allowed me to photocopy the whole of the K5 file.

In my role as admin to two support groups, I do get asked for recommendations for advocates, it is a big responsibility if you do recommend someone. Look at at what happened when ‘Fatboy’ sold me his bill of goods.

North Cyprus Property Victims | Beggars Imagination

North Cyprus Property Victims Beggars Imagination 150x112 North Cyprus Property Victims | Beggars ImaginationWITHOUT PREJUDICE

North Cyprus Property Victims – Beggars Imagination

I read this article in Hurriyet Daily News¹ and got very angry at the injustice meted out and then got to thinking about my own situation in the Turkish protectorate of the TRNC.

Imagine you are an old woman. Imagine you save for all of your working life so that you will not be a burden to your family and society.

Imagine you decide to sell up all that you have worked for in the UK and then having converted your assets to cash, you take that cash to the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. You follow all the rules set down for house purchase there, including an added precaution of engaging an Advocate who claims to have gained her law degree in the UK, and then you purchase a property.

Imagine then that having lived in your property for just under two years, you find that your UK legally trained Advocate has led you into a property scam and you then have to embark on legal action that is costly, uncertain and extremely stressful.

Imagine 6 years plus have elapsed and still you are waiting for a decision from a legal system that is clearly flawed.

Imagine that during that 6 years, a bank involved in the scam mounts a personal smear campaign on you and yours and accuse you of being dishonest, publicly attempts to humiliate you, even issues Libel writs in an attempt to silence you in your criticism of them and calls for your deportation, using the media as their mouthpiece. The irony there being that the same bank went to law to try to silence the media telling about their involvement in the scam. To a great degree, the bank did silence the press.

Will the TRNC become like Turkey and protect the harasser?

This is the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus the clue is in the name.
