in Cyprus Today – 6/11/2010

Paying the price – asking ex-pats to fork out for Greek Cypriot land is ‘just what we’ve always feared’. See NCFP and remember that it is just one of many ideas to cut Turkey’s costs

‘We just want it all to end’ – because the TRNC have refused to demolish the Orams’ property Mr. A thinks he can charge them rent without a rent agreement. The Orams vacated the property in February but have not been able to put the land back to its orignal state. Editor: the Orams have even offered to give the property back to Mr.A but unlike the rest of the GCs he seems to not be interested in the return of his land, but then he is part of the justice system in the south where they believe that stamping on a man’s head can be punished by 10 months SUSPENDED sentence and the man ramming his car 2 points on his license.

Moves to reduce debt defended – the Finance Minister seems to think that the country would be better off “without tourists out of their heads and drunk in Bellapais” and by having no tourism this would be achieved. The country has an “internal debt” of 2.5mTL and so with diminishing income the government’s expenditure has to also be reduced. Editor: with statements like that you can see why the TRNC’s income is reducing.

Businesses will go bust, warn unions – tourism union leaders warn that unless air fares are lowered then tourists will go elsewhere.

Incentive system to boost tourism – the Tourism Minister has announced that tourism operators will be given money for bringing tourists to North Cyprus.

New book recalls Cypriot way of life – a collection of images in Cyprus Scenes and Way of Life in 1954 by Richard Chamberlain.

Deadlines announced for changing YTL – TRNC Central Bank says old cash should be changed by 30th November.

Europe says no to Maraş land claim – the ECHR have rejected the claim of the religious trust, Evkaf Foundation, that, based on Ottoman rule ownership rights, they own Maraş. The ECHR ruled in favour of the 8 GC applicants. They also rejected Turkish allegations that land records in the south had be “reconstructed.” This case was launched before the IPC was seen as the first call for solving property problems. The 8 applicants have asked for about €90m compensation but would have been awarded less than €1m if they had been forced to use the IPC instead. Compensation will be ruled on next year.

Unions march in protest over lower salaries – draft legislation on pay dubbed is the ‘Emigration Bill’ because it will cause TCs to leave the country. The Unions says that the government ‘impose cuts in the salaries of working people but do not allow any cuts to the salaries of judges, prosecutors, those in the Civil Defence Organisations and those in political positions.”

Plans for mass cull of infected animals – brucellosis-infected animals are to be slaughtered after all, as advised by the World Health Organisation.

Greek Cypriots are ‘snubbing’ border trade lawsEditor: the Cyprus Today does not say how

Beyoncé’s sister is lined up for a Premium concert – Cratos also alleged that Randy Crawford will be performing on 16th November and stars such as underwater escapologists David Merlini are also booked in the future.

LETTER: You cannot begin to understand anguish – in response to Stephen Day’s advice, for those with property problems to keep their heads cool, the writer says that after 9 years of facing the prospects of their house being auctioned the last thing that will have any effect is to leave it to the government. They say that if the government actually did something to help they would “in the aid of charity… eat this letter  in public.”

Ban on YouTube back in force just days later – Turkey has reinstated the ban because YouTube refused to remove a video showing the former CHP leader “in an affair with a party deputy.” President Abdullah Gül has used Twitter to condemn the ban. Elsewhere Turkish PM Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is suing over cartoons depicting him with a Hitler moustache and crying “crocodile tears.”
