Ipek Ozerim’s article in Cyprus Today

Every now and then an article appears which encapsulates something that you’ve been trying to pin down, in this case; why is nothing being done about north Cyprus’ problems? We’ve had forced auctions of properties the owners had paid for in full, court cases concerning the alleged theft of tins of paint, costing the defendants in excess of £10,000 to prove their innocence and the mismanaged government owned Cyprus Turkish Airlines forever on the brink of bankruptcy.
