For Those Who Supported Kulaksiz 5 From Day One


BRS through Making North Cyrus Better called for support for the Kulaksiz 5 Court case last Saturday through the Cyprus Today newspaper. This was excellent, but not perhaps before time.

There have been other initiatives by the same people but let us face it, they are not the seasoned campaigners that others and NCFP are.

Kulaksiz 5 – Akfinans Bank to auction North Cyprus pensioner’s home in 27 days

Monday, May 10, 2010

To produce a short article every day until the Auction is a daunting task. However it came to mind that many of you did not get the connection Kulaksiz had with the Amaranta valley fiasco. I clearly remember his ‘public relations’ lackey telling me that Kulaksiz had negotiated a deal to help finish the project and that it would be worth millions to their company. I also remember telling him that it was a case of the ‘blind leading the blind’. Bear in mind that this was at the time they were doing the first rebuild on my villa at Kulaksiz 5 – that is for tomorrow.

Back to Amaranta Valley – they were booted off the site and many will remember Kulaksiz blockading the entrance to Amaranta valley because they were still owed £56,000. What a wonderful example of the biter getting bitten. Can you imagine Akfinans Bank Limited rubbing their greedy hands when Kulaksiz Construction Ltd told them of their lucrative new contract at Amaranta Valley.

Remember we need your support on June 6th 2010 at the Coffee Shop in Karisyaka Square – 10.00 a.m.

North Cyprus Free Press has been highlighting the court case dates and calling for support from day one of the K5’s problems. NCFP have never courted the government’s approval or been afraid to be seen as outspoken. NCFP are not political, NCFP are press and as such will report the news without fear or favour.

Many will have forgotten how Pauline Read appeared on GAK TV the night before the auction and broke down on live TV and was openly weeping and begging the bank and the government not to allow the auction to proceed. Pauline was the only K5 member available but that did not prevent her from appearing alone during that programme. The GAK TV programme was where Pauline Read first met Boysan Boyra, he was the legal adviser for the programme. Many attempts have been made to break Pauline Read’s spirit, to ostracise her and marginalise her, but she is still fighting with the same determination and courage. Clearly she will never give in and never give up and, as she has often said, the only thing that will will stop her is a bullet, possibly a silver one.

Kulaksiz 5 – in 25 days Akfinans Bank auctions secretly mortgaged property

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

I am sure you will all remember the fanfare at the opening of the Property Complaints Office, the carrot given to stop the protest by the HBPG at the opening of the new Government Buildings.

Like many of you, I did believe the hype, but not for long. My complaint was number 132. I compiled my complaint and all the usual documentation that they so like here.

HBPG instructed us: ‘dress code is smart – no shorts, jeans or t-shirts and you may be asked for ID at security (passport or drivers licence) and so I made an appointment and hand delivered the complaint. Well there was one smartly dressed person in that office – ME. One member of staff had on jeans, a t-shirt and a thick belt. The other would not have been out of place in a nightclub. After a brief discussion I left my paperwork and departed.

I waited for the promised phone call – and I waited – and I waited – and I waited – and I waited. Sound familiar? I eventually went back into their office to find out what they had achieved – nothing. I was informed by the member of staff that she knew Yuksel Yilmaz, he was a friend of hers. After a comment like that, you know you are on a hiding to nothing. I did receive one phone call – she said she had good news for me, I asked if Kulaksiz had capitulated – no she said, you have your permission to purchase. Big deal – I had chased that myself and made several trips into the Permission to Purchase Office, any effort in achieving it had been mine.

The Property Complaints Office had its title watered down to The Property Information Office and then disappeared. Oh how surprising.

The clock is ticking – put it in your diary – be there at the Coffee Shop in Karsiyaka Square – 10.00 a.m – come early. Show Akfinans Bank Limited that auctioning ‘stolen’ homes will not be tolerated. SUNDAY 6th JUNE 2010. Since we are not officially allowed to voice our dissent, perhaps total silence would be the best course during the auction, then if anyone is stupid enough to bid, they will stick out like a sore thumb.

During the time running up to the Auction, NCFP called for support and an article per day was written giving a count down in days to go; the saying “If you care, be there” accompanied the articles. At that time the Turkish speaking press and the English speaking press were a lot braver and ignored the warnings from Akfinans Bank.

NCFP will continue to support all property scam victims, Kulaksiz 5 is only the tip of the iceberg, as we have from the beginning and are glad to see our methods are being emulated now by others who should, let us face it, have been leading the way from day one. Better late than never.

Power to the people
