New York - East Side eviction

NCFP Archive – 31st August 2010

Incredible though it may seem, on the 6th September it will be three months since AKFINANS BANK LIMITED took the unprecedented step of auctioning properties belonging to British pensioners and Turkish settlers (now TRNC citizens) after giving a mortgage to the previous owner of the land, following his selling the same to the current owners, and using land no longer available for the purpose as collateral. It used to be popular the say ‘only in America’, I have to amend that now and say ‘ONLY IN THE TRNC.’

There now remains nine months in which AKFINANS BANK LIMITED, by law must dispose of the villas. Will you stop laughing, I know I mentioned that 3 letter word which has absolutely no meaning in the TRNC and certainly none in the vocabulary of Akan Kursat the Henchman (sorry Advocate) for AKFINANS BANK LIMITED. Eviction Orders; stuff and nonsense, who needs Eviction Orders when you have your trusty bank manager, locksmith and lookout boy?  I wonder if they send him up chimneys or down the copper mines when not needed for lookout duties? Then of course there is the getaway driver, dunno if it was the Advocate or the bank manager, not much of a hit man, he missed, but only because Chris displayed agility not normally associated with someone of his advanced years (sorry Chris). As the Police noted, ‘didn’t hit you did he, what’s your problem then?’

Now we know Akan Kursat’s father is claiming an accreditation ISO9001 he has no right to claim. Can we wonder at  ‘arrogance on legs’s’ behaviour, the apple does not fall far from the tree. Pity this particular apple is rotten to the core.

I remember during one of my court appearances when I was feeling particularly vulnerable, the Advocate acting for Kulaksiz Construction Limited took me to one side and said “put your trust in the courts, it is all you can trust in the TRNC.” Even though the same Advocate did publicly and quite spectacularly ‘sack’ his client Abdurrahman Guney during a court hearing, I am afraid the advice he gave me turned out to be equally spectacularly untrue.

    the Turkish Republic of Nationalised Corruption have allowed the corrupt and thuggish to increase their wealth at the expense of others.

    I guess they always knew they would wash their hands of us.
