How can we solve it? (keep it civilized)

CYPRUS HOMES

Postby brother » Mon Sep 27, 2004 6:52 pm

When the boarders were opened many of my family went to see there homes but there was nothing there the R.O.C goverment (i assume) had them all knocked down, so i ask were can we return and if we choose to will the R.O.C compensate us for our homes they knocked down as this is a serious problem and also they are making it impossible for us to claim our lands back or sell them is this not against our human rights.

Any knowledge appreciated or i guess a lot of us in the U.K will have to get together and take the R.O.C to court for chewing our human rights and not letting us do as we please with our lands and for knocking our homes down, which i do not understand why this was done and please do not sell me the excuse they were unsafe.

Brother,

I guess you are a TC by the sound of it.

You are considered a citizen of the RoC therefore you have every right to reclaim your property. Even if it is knocked down then I would guess you could claim compensation although to what level I do not know. Basically, the land is still yours and will be treated as such.

Look at the recent court case that a TC won regarding his property in the south.

Bear in mind though, even though you can pursue your case in Cyprus and probably win, the Greek Cypriots do not have such recourse in the north, other than to be able to receive compensation from the 'trnc' and probably for much below perceived market value. Most refugees want their land and property back to do as they wish. If it is their choice to not live there then they should be able to sell it to whoever they choose.

The issue is complicated really, but this is starting to unravel itself, despite what many people think.
