North Cyprus Property – ‘Waiting With Bated Breath.’

In company with all North Cyprus Property victims, I am waiting with bated breath to see the outcome of the K5 case.

Bank padlocks another Kulaksiz 5 absentee owner’s property
Thursday, April 7, 2011 by Name & Address Supplied

This afternoon, a member of Kulakisz 5 was checking on the home of an absentee owner, as arranged with the owner, when he saw two men come into her garden, one being the ‘foreman’ working on MY villa and the villa of Eva Mcluskey. The other was a taller man in a black leather jacket whose identity is, as yet, unknown. They confronted the K5 member and the leather jacket clad man asked him what he was doing there and declared that “this is my house,” “where are your papers, show me your papers.” The K5 member replied “I have got papers, who are you, show me your papers.” The first man continued shouting so the K5 member locked up the house, put the key in his pocket and went to his home.

As usual, the Bank employee called the police but the police did not go to any of the K5 residents’ houses. It was observed however that Bank employee had put an industrial size chain and padlock on the absentee owner’s gate.

A member of our legal team was called, he went to the police station and then accompanied the police back to Kulaksiz 5. The police inspected the inside of the villa in question. This villa is fully furnished and the absentee owner is the legal owner. Luckily two neighbours resident on K5 keep an eye on this and other villas whose owners are in the U.K.

The group then went back to Lapta Police Station where finally statements were taken. Not straightforward, but then whatever is when the Bank is involved?So, folks it may be CORCHIDACTUS watch again this weekend.

The leather jacketed individual who claimed ownership of the villa could be a member of the family, quite possibly Baba. I wonder how he would feel if someone were treating his parents in the callous and cruel fashion the Bank is treating the elderly, frail and frightened pensioners at Kulaksiz 5? I cannot imagine they will be sleeping too well tonight.

Tomorrow morning Kulaksiz 5 are at the High Court in Lefkosa; friends and supporters are welcome.”

On the 14th October is the date the main case for Kulaksiz was scheduled to start. Since they have appealed the last decision in the District Court, the one denying them the amendment to the case they had asked for, I have been told that the legal team will ask for this to be delayed until the outcome of the appeal is known.

Thank God for the High Court decision to grant an Interim Injunction on the properties on the Kulaksiz 5 site, stopping the bank acting badly until the outcome of the case is known. I just wonder if the Interim Injunction will be extended until the outcome of the ECHR case is known if K5 lose in in the TRNC.
