CRISIS TALKS – CRISIS meetings on controversial town planning legislation will be held this week after Cyprus Turkish Building Contractors’ Union (KTİMB) construction vehicles besieged the Prime Ministry on Thursday and yesterday.

Members converged on Lefkoşa from Girne, Güzelyurt, Lefke, İskele and Gazimağusa on Thursday morning in noisy banner-bearing convoys to protest a sixmonth freeze on the Gazimağusa, İskele and Yeniboğaziçi zoning plan.

KTİMB head Cafer Gürcafer held a short meeting on Thursday with Prime Minister Ersin Tatar, who imposed the temporary freeze on legislation in January after it had been due to come into effect on December 31.

The “siege” ended at 5pm yesterday after Mr Gürcafer emerged to make a statement following a two-hour second meeting between union officials and ministers.

Editor: Has anyone told the doctor that governments only pass laws, they don’t enforce them and nor do the police.

‘High Ranking Police Officer arrested for corruption’Editor: this would have been an expected article after last week’s news that a whistle-blower has evidence of police corruption, but nothing more has been said about the matter. I wonder why?
