I have recently taken out a Mandamus case against the Tapu (Land Registry) authority to force then to do their duty in respect of obeying an Enforcement Order from a District Judge in Girne District Court dated the 1st October 2010.

Doing this has been a learning curve because along the way my Advocate discovered that the Tapu’s own regulations require them to act on such an order within six months of its receipt.  This means that they have disobeyed their own regulation for more than two years and refused every request to do so by me and my Advocate.

In a desperate measure, and after liaising with my Advocate, we took the Tapu, a Government department, to the Supreme Court and now they are being forced to do their duty.

I do not regret the Mandamus action because it proves to others that Government departments are not above the law.

However, along the way the situation that appeared on the initial injunction has changed.  In forcing this Auction it appears I may be making others lose their homes and investments as happened to me.

It is for this reason, and not to jeopardise the Kulaksiz 5 case which I am still a part of, I have decided to withdraw my Mandamus case and release the charges on the site that I hold.

I was refused Permission to Purchase for the home I had bought with borrowed money, believing that the system I had put such faith in would not let me lose the award I had won in the Breach of Contract award case, the case I won on the 6th November 2009. It seems my faith was misplaced and now I have to pray that the courts will not let me and the rest of Kulaksiz 5 lose everything.

My personal circumstances are now that I have sold the second home, repaid my loan and now rent.

I am one of the two villa owners who have had their villas taken by the bank so our situation is slightly different to the rest of the Kulaksiz 5 in that we have no villa and no money.

My situation is compounded because the bank family now live in my villa.
