Is malicious prosecution illegal in the TRNC?

Malicious prosecution – is a common law intentional tort, while like the tort of abuse of process, its elements include (1) intentionally (and maliciously) instituting and pursuing (or causing to be instituted or pursued) a legal action (civil or criminal) that is (2) brought without probable cause and (3) dismissed in favour of the victim of the malicious prosecution. In some jurisdictions, the term “malicious prosecution” denotes the wrongful initiation of criminal proceedings, while the term “malicious use of process” denotes the wrongful initiation of civil proceedings.

I believe Pauline Read is being sued for libel for writing this article, correct me if I am wrong:

“Will Akfinans Bank do what Hitler could not?

6th of the 6th month 1944 Normandy landings – D Day. Now here we are 66 years later facing our own D DAY on the 6th of the 6th. For those of you who watched the Damien films – count the 6’s.

Most of us at Kulaksiz 5 were post war babies. Not so Mike Watkins-Jones, Mike is 87 years old and flew spitfires during the war. The war to end all wars. He fought as did our fathers, uncles and aunts to make this a better world. To stamp out inhumanity, to create equality and a better world. It was a world conflict and I know many Turkish Cypriot gave their lives to achieve this  objective. How is Mike being rewarded – by having his home sold from under him to satisfy a debt he did not incur. Is this right? Is this fair? Is this justice? I am aware that here it is legal – that being so – the law needs changing NOW.

We are accused by AKFINANS BANK LIMITED of blackmailing the state and that is so untrue, all we want is the state to recognise the Human Rights of the people of Kulaksiz 5 and all the other British, European and Turkish Cypriot people similarly affected by this erroneous banking practise.  Now back to the 6s did you get it 666 – 666 Spooky or what?  Be at the auction on 6th June 2010 at the Coffee Shop in Karsiyaka Square starts at 10.00 a.m. be early we expect a large turnout. Someone tell the Coffee Shop owner to get in plenty of coffee. I don’t know about you but I shall be wearing my cross and the eye for double indemnity.  If you care – be there.” (

Could someone help me here? Why would this be illegal in the TRNC and why would someone sue Pauline Read for writing it? I do hope it is not illegal to ask questions in the TRNC
