Cyprus Law | TRNC Court Treated ‘With Contempt’


Cyprus Law | TRNC Court Treated ‘With Contempt’

I picked up the Writs from the Bailiff’s office on Wednesday of this week.  There were two and both basically wanted the same thing, two different plaintiffs wanting to overturn the Breach of Contract judgement of the 6th November 2009. It did occur to me that if one Advocate had been representing both of the plaintiff’s it would have saved the litigants money and the High court time. I am not even Scottish yet I am so frugal.

The first date for a court appearance was the 25th which was yesterday. I turned up, but Abdurrahman Guney and Kulaksiz Construction Limited who are my joint defendants, did not. Time was spent with the Head Judge of the High Court in chambers and it was agreed that the advocate for the plaintiff for the first case and I would return on the 5th August 2013 which is that date for the second of the two cases against me and the others mentioned earlier.

I do not think it prudent of me to report on what was said and agreed in Chambers yesterday. All will be revealed later.

One thing I can claim since living in north Cyprus, my life is never dull but the price I am paying for this notoriety is too high.

One observation I will make, clearly the builder and the company he represented did not bother to attend court. This is in line with their general attitude towards TRNC law, they treat it with contempt, as indeed the fraudulent act of knowingly selling a property with an Injunction on four months after the injunction had been placed on it. Since they are walking free and still trading, one has to ask….where does the blame lie?

Never give in never give up
