Baroness Meral Hussein-Ece tells TRNC Prime Minister to get his finger out!

An interesting message from Baroness Meral Hussein-Ece was posted on the Stop the Blackmail in North Cyprus Facebook Group and is worth publicising further:

“Last week I met TRNC PM, Mr Küçük, and over lunch in the House of Lords, I impressed upon him how his government needs to urgently resolve this unacceptable scandal. Lord Maginnis was also present, and he has also making efforts to impress upon those in power, that they must act. I told him that innocent victims, British people who have chosen to live with Turkish Cypriots, should not be subjected to this appalling treatment and dragged through the courts, quite apart from damaging the reputation of all Turkish Cypriots. I was assured that he would take back my request, and make every effort to do what he could. I think he understood my message very clearly! We’ll wait and see. In the meantime, keep up your excellent campaign.

Justice is on your side
Best wishes, Baroness Meral Hussein-Ece”

Well, you couldn’t make it clearer than that! Now, I’m a gambling man and when the Prime Minister of TRNC tells a member of the UK’s House of Lords that he will “make every effort to do what he could,” I bet he means nothing! We’ve heard it all before, so let’s see how right I am. Forming a committee to “look” at the issue and then disbanding it a few weeks later doesn’t count nor does opening an office with a couple of staff to repeat what had failed 5 years earlier doesn’t count either. What does count is a simple action like making fraud a criminal offence that applies to everyone. For example if someone takes money in advance for goods they don’t deliver, because they then go on and use them as security for a loan they make no payments for, is quite simply a fraudulent action. I do believe it is the custom here to imprison criminals pending trial. Perhaps then there will be a new building boom bringing prosperity to the TRNC – building extra prisons!
