Why are we going to observe the PROPERTY JUSTICE SILENT PEACEFUL CANDLELIT VIGIL in LEFKOŞA?

stealingThis morning Chris was up at 4.00 a.m. to take friends to the airport, more victims of the property scam here in TRNC. They have never actually had their property finished but they have made the decision to cut their losses and leave it all behind. I cannot criticise them for this. It takes good health to be able to fight these parasites and unfortunately our friends are in very poor health.

I do not propose to name our friends because they would not want me to. I can name the builder though because I know there are very many victims of this particular building company – BOYUT. I remember someone posting on the comments about the lavish wedding organised by the director of this company and his English bride.

I can remember first meeting our friends in one of the local hostelries. A charming couple, full of the joys of life here, quite convinced that their new home would be delivered to them as promised. Of course, it never happened. That was three years ago and I have watched the steady deterioration of their physical and mental health and of course the rapid deterioration of their money. They never moved into their new home, it was never finished. Ever the greedy opportunist, the builder says if they pay MORE money, he will finish it. I can hear the ABAG purchasers who went down that route only to find they had been doubly duped, shouting ‘don’t do it’. Not an option, their udders are also dry. Now they face the prospect of returning to the UK to live in rented accommodation.

So many are in the same position and the Government just wants us to ‘shut up’. Why can’t they see that by taking that first painful step towards righting this incredible wrong, they will be on the road to recovery? We are realists, we know we will never receive any compensation for the abuse we have all suffered, we do expect however to get our money back or the property we have paid for. Is that so unreasonable? Well no.

Will it ever happen – only time will tell? Time most of us may not have.
