Pauline’ Opinion | ‘Corruption and Collusion Within the Police’

Bad Day for an AppleWITHOUT PREJUDICE

When the crime against Kulaksiz 5 was committed, they had a lot of support from those who could see the unfairness of what was happening. Of course, in the fullness of time, as with everything, people stopped being shocked. As more and more property related scams emerged people were not only no longer shocked, it almost became expected, even accepted.

What an indictment on a country who complained long and loud when their rights were violated, yet did nothing
to stop what was happening under their noses.

Whilst the Government of a country does nothing to right wrongs within their borders, then the wrongdoers will carry on regardless. Why wouldn’t they, seems the law is only for others, those not in the ‘inner circle’, those not having friends in high places.

I often think about Laura the Laptop, still supposedly languishing in Girne nick, some 5 years after she was illegally taken into custody. You have to wonder who was really behind that. I will give you a clue to my thinking on that
one. Akfinans Bank Limited had the audacity to call the police to give evidence on what was on Laura in a totally
unrelated Libel case hearing back in 2014. Now what was all that about, hands up anyone who agrees that Laura
was kept in custody for that very purpose…indeed in my opinion, the only reason she was taken in the first place.

Fortunately, the Judge was not impressed…frankly neither am I. How can a bank be given access to evidence taken
by the police for a totally different purpose, my writing about the Geoff Day outrage. Does this not speak of corruption and collusion within the police ranks? How very convenient for the bank….how very dishonest for them
to be even allowed access. It certainly does not instill confidence in the rule of law in the TRNC.

Still you could say the same about the police’s attitude and inaction when the bank took my villa without a court order on the 30th July 2010. I did make a formal written complaint. The police responded by threatening to arrest us if we entered our own garden.

Recently, the court allegedly (according to the Chief of Police in Lapta) issued a court order forbidding me to go near my villa. How does that work? How can it be granted without any reference to me?

The police promised to return the laptop which I never gave them permission to take within two weeks. Why then
am I still waiting for its return 5 years plus later. I requested Laura’s return both verbally and in writing, they refused to return her. I still have the receipt they gave me for Laura the laptop.

Laura the laptop receipt

I personally think it is high time the Government took control and sorted out the mess caused by those who think the law is for other people….a sad situation when some tasked to protect us come into the category.

    You still don’t get it you senile old fool. Its not a blooming country, its a pseudo state. Serves you and rest of cheapskates right.
    Why don’t you complain to the ECHR !!!!

  • tomsteel

    Milt, as an old boy of the prefabs of south London post-war, I will come down to your level – bog off if you have nothing +ve to add to a forum post.

  • Miltiades

    Tomsteel, in support of my birth country I will defend it in which way I can, Im sure that you would do exactly the same if England was partly occupied and a part of it declared it self an independent nation. You would not be coming down to my level but up to my level.

    What many of you do not realize is that a part of Cyprus that you call a ” country ” IS DEEMED BY THE ENTIRE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY AS BEING OCCUPIED BY TURKEY.

    The occupation will not last for ever, many conquerors have come and gone, Turkey will too.

    As for the plight of senile old codgers who rushed to buy cheap STOLEN properties, they too will soon go.

  • tomsteel

    Milt, your support for your old country is laudable, it is your current methodology of slating posters on this forum that serves only YOUR pent-up anger and hatred. Most readers just amuse themselves at your constant ranting. If and when there is a settlement between the two sides, the Cypriots actually living there will have to get along. Northern Ireland, Viet Nam, the Balkans, South Africa etc have all had to compromise in their views to move forward. The past is exactly that and will not help with the current and future situation.

  • Miltiades

    TS, with the same zest that I support my birth country I also support my adopted country, the birth country of my late wife and my children.

    My anger is directed against those that exploited the opportunity of cheap properties and in doing so have also thrown their support behind the occupier of the northern parts of Cyprus.

    Turkish imported migrants far exceed the number of native T/Cs, they themselves, the T/Cs, also victims of the extremists who caused the division and invited Turkey.

    I have nothing against Turkish Cypriots whom I consider as my compatriots with the same rights as I and any other Cypriot has.

    Many of you persistently and ferociously support the continued occupation of northern Cyprus because you all have a financial ulterior motive.

  • Ian Edwards

    Yiannis, now we own homes and live here, the motive is not financial, and it certainly isn’t ulterior. We support the current political situation for one good reason.

    It’s called peace.

  • AM

    I have asked on a number of occasions for the reasoning behind 2 statements constantly trotted out but never got any credible answers so here goes again….

    My anger is directed against those that exploited the opportunity of cheap properties and in doing so have also thrown their support behind the occupier of the northern parts of Cyprus.
    &
    I have nothing against Turkish Cypriots whom I consider as my compatriots with the same rights as I and any other Cypriot has.

    The property market was created by TURKISH CYPRIOTS and exploited by TURKISH CYPRIOTS and they are your so called compatriots ?
    So why the grumpiness with the Brits when really you should be taking your anger out on your best mates the TC’s yes/no ?.

  • Miltiades

    The vast majority of T/Cs are decent, family orientated just the same as the G/Cs, just as you can not blame all G/Cs for the 1974 events that gave Turkey the green light to invade and occupy the northern parts , you can not blame all T/Cs who seized the opportunity to fleece foreigners by selling them stolen properties.

    The T/Cs were also victims of foreign indoctrination as to their true motherland just as the G/Cs.

    I understand that being away from Cyprus for such a long time my views are not necessary shared by those Cypriots who suffered during the intercommoned strife of early 60s.

    The suffering endured both by G/Cs and T/Cs was as a result of pseudo nationalism inflicted upon them by both Turkey and Greece, the two nations responsible mainly for the divide of our island.

    Some of my G/C compatriots find my views unacceptable and I fully understand their reasoning.

    I believe in a united Cyprus led and ruled by Cypriots, just as the UK is ruled by the British and not either the Scottish, Welsh
    or English.

    “you can not blame all T/Cs who seized the opportunity to fleece foreigners by selling them stolen properties.”

    That’s a very strange response !… Ahh well I suppose you can’t educate pork.

  • Miltiades

    Talking about your self again, Stupid !!

  • AM

    So it’s ok to sell this type of property and be a hero but if you buy one you are branded a low down cheapskate… what sort of logic is that….and I am the one being called stupid ?

  • Miltiades

    Who said anything about heroes you idiotic senile old fool !!
    The reason I constantly tell you that you are far to stupid to debate anything a part from the merits of being utterly brain dead!
