in Cyprus Today – 19/3/2011

Peek into the future – work could start next month on a 30-floor $65m hotel proposed for Girne

We’ve been left homeless – an ex-pat couple have been evicted from their home in Tatlısu for not paying the final payment which they say they withheld because the contract finish date was not adhered to. They have been refused entry to their home despite no eviction order being produced. The couples’ property was thrown out and the locks were changed.

Editor: I wonder if a lawyer present at the time made that law up on the spot so he could bully K5 residents?

Group pleads with President for Kulaksiz 5 help – Marion Stokes of HBPG has written to Yaprak Renda, a human rights lawyer in the President’s Office, begging for something to be done about K5. Editor: perhaps she could ask for a reply to all the other communications made to that office over the last few years.
