Kulaksiz 5 meet the Turkish Ambassador and are in Volkan newspaper

This morning has been spent in a meeting with the Turkish Ambassador in Lefkosa.  It was, in my opinion, a very productive meeting where we were given a warm and positive reception.  Naturally it would be premature for me to give details of this meeting since our situation is delicate and change daily.  I can say though that the Ambassador seemed shocked by what he was hearing with regard to the level of intimidation being suffered by elderly frail pensioners whose only mistake was to buy from rogues. Pensioners whose entire lives have been turned upside down by the wrong doing of others.

Today also sees the first brave Turkish language newspaper who dared defy Akfinans Bank Limited and go ahead and print the statement so bravely made by Advocate Boysan Boyra. We have had to pay for this as an advertisement but nevertheless it covers page 1 and pages 15, 16, 17 and 18 and is accompanied by photos. This is the first opportunity we have had to make this statement available to the hard working Turkish Cypriot people to read. They have a right to receive this news, but not in the opinion of Akfinans Bank Limited who have gone to extraordinary lengths to prevent the publication. What I do find extremely sad is that the majority of the press have accommodated them.

For those of you who cannot get a copy, here are a few assorted photos from the newspaper. Akfinans Bank Limited, be aware, I Pauline Read did not take even one of these photographs, I was not even there during this particular fracas. I am afraid I will offend your sensibilities again, another one of the backside of a Bank official going through the window, still if he doesn’t like it he could always use it to wipe said backside. Is printers ink toxic, I do hope so?

Remember, you read the Boysan Boyra Statement in English here on NCFP first.
