“Police called after Bank employees late night visit to Kulaksiz 5”
Saturday, July 31, 2010 by Name & Address Supplied

Tonight, the bank plumbed depths, I believed even they would not go to. It reinforced my suspicion that they are c******** trying to wear the cloak of respectability.

At about 7.00 pm. this evening I received a telephone call from my neighbour Bob, informing me that two cars were outside my house at Kulaksiz 5 in Karsiyaka. and the occupants were in my garden looking in through the windows.

Chris, my other half jumped in the car and rushed to Karsiyaka whilst I stayed to make phone calls to the police and other members of Kulaksiz 5 to enlist their support. I telephoned Lapta police just after 7.00 p.m. and please remember that because it is an itegral part of this story, they said they would go to my house in Karsiyaka.

When Chris arrived in Karsiyaka he found two cars, one an Hyundai and one a Citroen C1, I took the numbers of the cars so that this information could be used in the police investigation I expected to be launched. A child approximately 10 years old was standing on the wall and 3 men were coming over the wall as the gates were padlocked. When he asked them who they were and what they were doing on our property one answered that he was The Manager of the Bank Limited. I had no way of confirming this but when I discovered what they had done, I had no problem in believing what I’d been told. Chris then said, what are you doing here on our property, I want you to call the police, one then said I have already called the police to which Chris replied, lets wait for them then. At this point the Hyundai sped away and the Citroen driver drove his car at Chris at speed in such a way that it seemed to him that the driver intended to either injure him or even kill him. It was only Chris’s agility that saved him from serious injury or worse.

Inspection revealed that they had forced entry into the house and had removed and replaced the locks on the front and back doors. As they had no Eviction Order and I had not been informed of any legal judgement giving them the right to carry out this crime, they are in fact guilty of breaking and entering. The attack on Chris is also, in our eyes, attempted murder.

Haluk from Ada TV arrived and was appalled that the police had not arrived having been called over an hour and a half previously. He called them and insisted they came. Haluk filmed the changed locks and interviewed me on camera. I was in a state of complete shock, both at the crass behaviour of

Bank limited and the attempt on Chris’s life. Eventually the police arrived, they took some the details but did not even bother to get out of their vehicle.

Later I visited a friend who, when I said I had signed nothing but had made it clear to the police at the scene of the crime that I wished to press charges against

Bank, advised me to go to Girne Police Station which we did with a Turkish Cypriot friend. At Girne Police Station the officer got the details up on the computer screen – there was no mention of the attempt to run Chris over. He informed us that we would have to go to Lapta Police Station on Monday to ‘correct’ the police report.

The support given to us at the scene of the crime by our neighbours Dave and Marion who were also witnesses to both crimes was immense. The police did not interview them.”

In all fairness, and at the insistence of the late founding President, the police did eventually get round to interviewing the witnesses.

This all seems so far away now and the bank enjoys Pauline’s villa as their weekend retreat. Somewhere to kick back, relax and strut down the street like the fiefdom laird. Banking must be a high stress occupation.

Misinformation and disinformation seems to abound where this case is concerned.

“North Cyprus Bank enlists Akan in fight against truth
Thursday, August 5, 2010 by Name & Address Supplied

In the Kibris newspaper on Tuesday there was an excellent article on the happenings at our home on the previous Friday evening; a factual account of the break in and the vehicular attack on Chris. We have all read in Cyprus Today of the counter claim by Akan that Chris attacked one of the men with a baseball bat. A claim that has surfaced some four days after it allegedly took place and intended, it would seem, to establish a reason why the car was driven at Chris at speed. If this is their argument then they are lucky they are not in the UK where you are only allowed to use reasonable force to defend yourself. I would argue that if someone threatened a car with a baseball bat and the response was to drive at the attacker at speed, this would not be seen as reasonable. Surely if you were being attacked by a banshee wielding a baseball bat you would, as a legally trained professional, advise the driver to drive away from the attacker NOT at him.

Of course all the above is hypothetical as Chris did not have a baseball bat, or any other weapon, he did not attack anyone and owes his life to being agile enough to jump out of the way of the speeding car. I am assuming that because Akan is giving these statements to the press, he may indeed the third member of the group who broke into my house. I know the property market is dormant but it is sad to see a legally trained man being reduced to moonlighting as a bailiff – times must be hard.

On Wednesday Akan faxed a reply to Kibris and that reply was printed without reference to me to check whether the facts given out in the public domain were true. They are not. Akan has a right to reply, I would defend that right. He also has an obligation to tell the truth. I wonder if he is prepared to lie in court?

Akan, I have not received the £120,000 awarded to me by the Court in my successful Breach of Contract action, but then you know that, I told you when I met you in your office during the meeting on the 23rd July 2010, just a few days ago. You suggest in your article that I left the house in Karşiyaka ages before the auction and that this was because I had received the money. Again, not true, I told you of the damp and the poor structural condition of my house and explained that this was the reason I left THREE WEEKS before the auction. This is all to turn the Turkish Cypriot people against me and to paint me as a delusional greedy woman.

For your information Akan I suffer from extensive bronchiectasis in both lungs following a particularly virulent disease called pericarditis, This condition is permanent and life threatening. The spores being produced by the damp due to water penetration following the heavy winter rains made me aware that the conditions in the house were causing me problems. I was having difficulty in breathing. The structural deterioration was also a worry.”

Of course since this was published much has happened, including Pauline Read withdrawing her Mandamus case because she did not have the stomach to do to others what the Bank did to her and the Kulaksiz 5. So the Advocate for the Bank got so much wrong, she had not and will now never receive the money the court awarded her in her Breach of Contract action.

How disingenuous of the same Advocate to apply to the High Court to have the Breach of Contract judgement of the 6th November 2009 in Pauline Read’s favour be overturned. Perhaps along the way he is learning something from the legal team acting for the K5.

However since the lady in question is in the K5 case, AND another Kocan in question also contained a memorandum in favour of the Bank, no enforcement order on this, but nevertheless still part of the same judgement given on the 6th November 2009, is there a very clear CONFLICT of INTERESTS?

Ms Read tells me she is taking the necessary action to remove the memorandum from all Kocans mentioned in her Breach of Contract judgement. She has emailed the Advocate involved in the 3881 Kocan and made her aware she will co-operate in removing the memorandum on this Kocan, She has also emailed the Advocate acting for the client about the memorandum on the other Kocan, which the Bank also had/has a memorandum on. Coincidentally the interest rate showing against Pauline Read’s memorandum shows 4%, and the one in the Bank’s favour shows 80% per quarter compound. You Could Not Make It Up.
