The Olive Grove homeowners have replied
“Thank you Mr Dentas. You father would be proud, he did everything he could to help us.”
The deputy prime minister says that within a week he hopes to have made progress.
Meanwhile , the head of Koop Bank has said
“We want a friendly agreement that benefits everyone”.
This is a HUGE breakthrough for people whose homes were set to be auctioned on 11th April – 4 days ago our.
The Olive Grove people said that much of the thanks for their progress goes to Emine Colak, the barrister and former government minister who has worked tirelessly for them for several years.
Perhaps an Olive Grove solution could send a positive message that North Cyprus is a safe and fair place to invest after all.
Editor: I’d wait in sending that message until the Olive Grove purchasers have title deeds in their names, otherwise they will be guilty of involving others in the same mess they are in. I’m sure long-time readers of NCFP can remember situations where victims recommended products only to discover that they had been duped and had been used in order to con others.
Tim Smith: The folk of Olive Grove choose to be positive and are confident that Mr Denktaş will keep his promise to help. The courts in North Cyprus have made fair decisions recently and have every indication of being independent and not controlled by the banks, in fact they are holding banks to account for their actions.
Also, the folk in Olive Grove DEEPLY LOVE NORTH CYPRUS. We love how safe it is and what a great place to bring a family.
All we ask is for the deeds of the homes we paid for, and that a government bank is not allowed to auction our homes just because they loaned a builder money AFTER we bought our homes.
Time will tell, but we choose to stay positive.0 Likes
