Kulaksiz 5 Group Appeal for Public Support at 9am on September 19th 2012
For anyone with sympathy for those facing repossession or eviction proceedings, next Wednesday 19th September at 9am is an important time at the Lefkosa Appeal Court.
The KULAKSIZ 5 Group’s Lawyers, Boysan Boyra Law, are appealing to three Senior TRNC Judges to overturn a lower Court decision that allows a Bank to sell their homes before their main case is decided.
The main case takes place in Girne on October 10th 2012.
All expats and Cypriots who wish to attend are asked to please peacefully stand outside the Court to demonstrate their support for the Kulaksiz 5 Group and all property victims caught up in this mess. To keep within TRNC law for expats this will be a civilised silent protest without placards.
The Lekosa Court is in Lefkosa Old Town opposite the Main Post Office.
This is major step forward and a much needed boost to the Kulaksiz 5 litigants. Please join them at the Lefkosa High Court on Wednesday the 19th September at 9.00 am when their legal team will try to convince the three Appeal Judges of the rightness of their case and attempt to persuade the three learned Judges to overturn the decision by Judge Talat Usar in the Girne District Court on the 26th August, 2011.
Judge Usar denied their application for an Interim Injunction to stop the Bank selling their villas until the final outcome of all cases was known. The Judge famously awarded costs of 2000 lira against the Kulaksiz 5 and wrote the condition of collection of the costs in such a way that the Bank were able to collect the whole amount from one of the litigants, Pauline Read. During this same hearing the Bank applied for Pauline Read to be removed from the case, the Judge refused the Bank this request. This may well be one of the reasons they targeted her to pay the costs which clearly is the joint responsibility of all of the K5 litigants. That and her refusal to accept the Bank’s intimidation and efforts to silence her.
