North Cyprus News | Support Flag FlyersWITHOUT PREJUDICE

Just when you think you have heard it all, another little gem raises its head.

As those following the flag flying event in north Cyprus are aware, feelings are running high on the subject, not least because of the presence of a faction, thought dormant, the Grey Wolves who are indignant at the flying of the Cypriot Flag in north Cyprus.

http://www.parikiaki.com/2015/05/turkish-cypriot-couple-attacked-by-extremists-as-trial-for-flying-the-cyprus-flag-begins/

It is being suggested that the actions of this couple could harm the Cyprob peace talks, that they are being supported by political parties and unions with hidden agendas. How insulting is this? Oh yes, and where have I heard all this before….I know, in my own case where I was told I was harming our case against Akfinans Bank Limited for the same reason.

Well I never accepted that. I did accept the help of Sener Elcil and Sener Levent and their help was genuine and gratefully accepted by me. So when I hear the same old, same old, being leveled at Koray and Cinel, I see it for what it is, another not so subtle attempt to intimidate into silence.

They flew the Cypriot flag in north Cyprus…big deal. They have behaved with dignity and courage. The Grey Wolves have as a pack emerged with their usual brand of threats. As individuals, if you said boo to them, they would defecate and hide behind it.

Koray and Cinel are back in Famagusta court on Tuesday 22nd ay 2015 at 1.30 pm. They are asking for our support.

If you can, please be there. Show your support to two brave people. Remember if found guilty, they could go to prison. Hard to believe in the 21st century I know, but having experienced the system myself, I know it is flawed. Having attended the Geoff Day case, I know anything can happen in north Cyprus.

Remember Laura the Laptop still languishes in Kyrenia police custody, almost five years since they took her away.

Support Koray and Cinel on Tuesday.

If you care, be there.

Never give in, never give up.

    The RoC flag was the design of a Turkish Cypriot, it repressents all Cypriots.
    The so called grey woolves are NOT Cypriots, they should not be in Cyprus but in their motherland, Turkey. I would also say the same to those G/Cs who consider Not Cyprus as their motherland but Greece. PO I say to them all, join your beloved foreign motherlands and leave Cyprus to the true Cypriots such as Koray and Chinel.

    That’s better, Yiannis.

  • AM

    A true Cypriot eh Milti,…. just like you do you mean ?

  • Miltiades

    Shut up STUPID !

  • AM

    No Milti I will not shut up.
    One thing is certain you simply can not bully me like you did your fellow Cypriots.

    Get it through that thick head of yours that no one is remotely interested in anything you have to say anymore.

  • Miltiades

    Ever considered a brain transplant, I hear… ISIS are pretty good at it !!!

  • AM

    See,.. you are obsessed with this subject ?

    Perhaps you should consider a character transplant but that said you would probably f**k that one up as well ?

  • Polly Marples

    Don’t you mean a character implant AM. A transplant implies he has one.

  • Miltiades

    Two senile old peasants concur !
    Either of you knew your fathers ??

  • AM

    Its not you is it Milti .. 🙂

  • Polly Marples

    Oh my God….no you are too intelligent to have that as a father AM.

  • Wallet and Gromit

    Milti has had a few “kids” most probably including his pet goat.

    Famagusta Court Today 26th May 2015

    This is taken from the support page for the FLAG FLYERS

    UPDATE FROM THE KORAY AND CINEL COURTCASE

    Just came off the phone with Cinel Senem Husseyin after their court hearing. According to her there was a bigger turnout this time of Grey Wolves waving Turkish flags and chanting loudly, around 100 people. Their supporters made up of Cypriotgreeks and Cypriot Turks were numbered around 25 people. Koray Basdogrultmaci and Cinel were escorted to the court by police who have been protecting them since last Thursday’s courtcase whereby they were attacked by the Grey Wolves. Approximately 5 Grey Wolves were allowed inside the courtroom to hear the proceedings after everybody was searched to avoid knives and such being in the courtroom as was the case last week.

    At today’s hearing the final 2 witnesses for the Prosecution were put on the stand and the couple’s solicitor was allowed to cross examine. Two interesting factors arose from today. The video that has been at the centre of the case showed that the couple had approximately 6 police officers at their shop at the time of their arrest which they state was for ‘their own safety’ but when Cinel asked for a female police officer to be present, one of the Police dismissed her request and said ‘Hade’, in other words ‘come on’ and she was manhandled by a male officer. Interestingly enough even though it had been 4 mainland settlers who had complained originally about the flag being offensive to them, it was clearly shown on the video that in fact one of the Police Officers stated ‘this flag is bothering me’. The case continues tomorrow with the promise of even more protection from the police and witnesses for the Defence will be called.

    At today’s hearing no Cypriot flag was raised. As soon as the hearing had finished Koray and Cinel together with their supporters were escorted back to their cars.
