North Cyprus Forums | CAC's Chris Arif Wishes FLANC WellWITHOUT PREJUDICE

The following conversation appeared on a FaceBook page overnight, under a link to Free LEGAL Advice in North Cyprus (FLANC):

Chris Arif: Good luck to you and your solicitor on your new free advice FaceBook group and when you get your new premises, after paying your rent, phone, insurance etc, will your services still be free, if they are good for you and I wish you and haka all the best.”

Chris Arif Ps: Why have you blocked me from your site ??????????

Pauline Read: WITHOUT PREJUDICE Mr Arif, the advice is free there is no annual membership to receive that advice, the client if they so wish can engage the services of Hak , but under no obligation to do so, the advice is still FREE. The choice is theirs and the costs reasonable, he is a fully qualified, law degree holding, TRNC recognised, qualified advocate of ten years experience. Why are you blocked from the site? the same reason that I am blocked from the site you funded and charges £50 annual membership fee. I wish you well in all your ventures.”

One wonders why Mr Arif, who allegedly funded the rent on CAC premises, finds it necessary to comment at all. Even more hypocritical is the question as to why he is blocked from the sites. The tolerance policy on both sites he is involved in is well known.

Citizen’s Advice Cyprus | NCFP now Banned by Chris Arif?
Wednesday, August 22, 2012 – by Malcolm Channing

An Administrator on Citizen’s Advice Cyprus (CAC) seems now to have banned my NCFP account with them. I can’t see why Pembe Ibrahim would do this as we don’t seem to have any issues between us. However Admin Chris Arif and I did energetically exchange views a few weeks ago so I wonder if he took offence at being challenged.

I don’t know if it is a coincidence, but I received an email recently saying that the sender thought it strange that CAC Admin, Chris Arif, and his brother were the landowners in the Sevilla property case which CAC says they had sorted out. I said that I’d need to check this with Chris Arif but then found that I was no longer a CAC member.

If anyone is still a member of CAC, and has not been banned, could you put a comment on there asking if it was Chris Arif that banned me and if he and his brother are the landowners in the Sevilla case? I only want to peek at CAC every now and then, to see what they’re doing and write the occasional article keeping NCFP readers updated. Perhaps nothing is going on and that’s why they don’t want me to see. You can always have a look at their new website at CAC but there’s nothing there yet.

Mr Arif is infamous for his comment about sad, lonely old people posting on their site and that freedom of speech was not something we should expect on there. That post, along with many others on CAC and the other stbinc, were deleted. Oddly he now no longer appears to be a member of CAC. His choice, his business, and frankly we are too busy to be interested.
