North Cyprus Property Hell | Akfinans Bank Issue a Press StatementWITHOUT PREJUDICE

I find this interesting and I must admit it is the first time I have seen it. I take no responsibility for its publication initially but since it is in the public domain, see no harm in reproducing it since it is someone else’s word.

“North Cyprus Property Hell | Akfinans Bank Issue a Press Statement

This statement was posted to Kibris Newspaper on 23rd March 2011. It has been translated from Turkish, therefore the translation may not be 100% accurate.

Our Bank has felt compelled to issue a statement following lies and false written newspaper reports and visual news concerning the Kulaksız 5 site in Karşıyaka.

Akfinans Bank Ltd. holds the title deed for the said houses located in Karşıyaka Girne, which was undergoing construction. There are residents that are illegally residing on the site and action has been taken against a group of foreign nationals for eviction, which has come after they broke the locks of a house and caused damage to the house; they than intentionally made a statement claiming that they are the rightful possessors of the house and claimed that the locks in question were actually broken by our bank and they took the initiative of trying to make a wrongful impression to the public.

The bank immediately informed and has made a criminal complaint on the matter to the TRNC Attorney-General, Girne Police and Lapta Police. However unfortunately this matter was reported intentionally in certain press without making any kind of proper research into the matter and has distorted the matter by reporting in a one sided manner to the general public.

We would like to remind that according to the Banking Law 39/2001, Article 53, any unfounded reporting or news undertaken by the respective person which will damage the reputation or harm the bank is considered a criminal act, we therefore would like to reiterate our belief that the Police, the Higher Press Authority and other respective authorities will enforce the stipulated sanctions, and would like to inform the public that we have commenced legal proceedings against the respective press or people that have intentionally reported wrong news to the public as Akfinans Bank Ltd

Akfinans Bank Ltd

Akfinans Bank are wrongfully presenting the residents of Kulaksiz 5 as criminals. They are implying that the residents of Kulaksiz 5 are living there illegally, and they are threatening action against the residents. They are threatening legal action against any media outlet in North Cyprus who are publicising the injustice faced by the Kulaksiz 5. It would appear as court did not go entirely their way this week; they are now attempting other means to put pressure on the families of Kulaksiz 5.
