TRNC Akfinans Bank demands £600pm for ex-pat pensioners to live in their homes

PirateI think from my comments you all know now just how painful the High Court hearing proved to be on Wednesday 27th October 2010. If I have learnt one thing from my mistakes here, it is that I am not cut out to be a court reporter. I allow my personal feelings to colour my judgement. I will not make that mistake again. I am neither qualified nor foolish enough to try to report the events of this hearing without overstepping the mark, so I will not even try. I will however say that sitting next to a neighbour and listening to him try to choke back the sound of his sobs is quite easily one of the most painful experiences of my life. Having had my computer confiscated by the police and still waiting for the knock on the door with the threatened summons has chastened me somewhat.

You may think that having suffered the events of the court hearing we had suffered enough for one day, not so. On returning to their home, the same people who had already received the Writ, a precursor to the legal action to evict them from their homes, answered a knock on the door at 7.30 p.m. the same night as the hearing. There stood the bailiff and a policeman. The policeman asked to see their passports but they explained they had already received their Writ. This Writ demands it be answered and that they pay £600 per month for the privilege of staying in their own, fully paid for home until the court gives AKFINANS BANK LIMITED the right to evict them legally.

That this bank has no heart, we already know; that they would commit this gross act of cruelty on the same evening that they had watched the Kulaksiz 5 leave court, bowed and broken is unconscionable. Personal experience has taught me that the bank, through their Advocate Akan Kursat is capable of anything. Mental torture is surely as cruel as physical torture and as big a crime against humanity.

I pray God will give us all the strength to endure whatever they do to us next. Akfinans will let us perish, God will not.
