Silent Peaceful Candlelit Vigil – 5 days to go


Peaceful Candlelit Vigil

To say that I am exhausted would an understatement. I am covering the travesty of Justice involved in the case now  being tried at Girne District Court. I am covering daily, this Property related issue, where, in my opinion the legal system is being misused because the usual form of blackmail, used by some unscrupulous builders in trying to get purchasers to pay the final payment for a house that is not finished, has failed. It takes the situation here in the TRNC onto another level. I refer, of course to the trial of Geoff Day. His wife Mary is ill and has had to return to the U.K. for family and health reasons. Mary suffered a heart attack in May 2007 and relates this directly to the stress caused by the ongoing persecution by her builder.

I hope you will join us for our Silent Peaceful Candlelit Vigil on 4th October 2010 outside the Turkish Embassy in Lefkosa from 5.00 p.m. till 8.00 p.m. There will also be a Peaceful Protest in London on the same day from 10.30 a.m. till 4.30 p.m. for those of you with property problems in the TRNC but living in the U.K . If you think you do not have a problem even though you own a property in the TRNC, think again. Consider what your property is worth now and what it would have fetched two years ago, it is not just the global downturn, IT IS DIRECTLY RELATED TO THE LOSS OF CONFIDENCE caused by this shoddy building policy that has gone unchecked here in the TRNC.

The residents of Baris apartments built by TUTUSKA still have problems despite Tutuska publicly proclaiming he was sorting out the mortgage. We all remember the heartbreaking pictures and stories at the time of their Auction and thank God their were no bids. They are now waiting news of a second Auction. Can we sit back and watch it happen? NO NO NO!!! Pembe has been in touch and there will be a group of Tutuska victims at the Vigil – Turkish Cypriots and Turkish people .

The security police have been in touch, the officer was courteous and very helpful, the more Turkish Cypriots in our group, the better. We are peaceful, we love the TRNC, we are aware the Turkish Government are not directly to blame, but we are intelligent enough to work out that our salvation can come only through their intervention. We are begging the Turkish Government – PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE – help us…..

The news of the Vigil was carried in the Turkish speaking press here yesterday. I pray they will carry this story too. It is of so much interest to all the people in the TRNC
