Is it fair for, Mr Conor

So stealing a house from an English family is fine in Cyprus, and no laws have been broken. I am sure this decision will work wonders for your failing property market.

Whatever security and protection property owners/buyers without title deeds had yesterday, they don't have it now, so whatever may have happened in the past is irrelevant. This judge by her decision in Conor's case has given the developers carte blanche to do what the hell they like with our property and the law can now do f***all to stop them.

The judge accepted that Conor and Michaela had entered in to a contract to buy a house from Karayiannas, she accepted that Conor had had a contract stamped and lodged at the land registry office for "specific performance", she accepted the fact that, in law, Conor then became the "beneficial owner" with all the protection that goes along with this term, I.E. that the only one who could sell the house would be Conor, she even pointed out that Karayiannas use this very fact on their website to allay the fears of potential buyers. She accepted that the only person who could cancel the contract would be Conor, in negotiation with the developer, she likened the developer at that stage, although in law he is the legal owner, he becomes " the custodian of the best interests of the buyer and beneficial owner".

She accepted evidence from a representative of the land registry office who stated that Conor's contract was indeed stamped and registered there for specific performance. She accepted evidence that Conor had made staged payments as required by the contract until, mysteriously, one payment was rejected by the developer, she accepted that numerous attempts by Conor to contact the developer to find out what was happening were ignored and never answered. She accepted that the developer then sold the house to a third party after supposedly cancelling the contract, something that she had just said could only be done by Conor, in consultation.........................or by a court order, this had not happened.

She accepted all of the above, then found against him

I hope the lesson for the world looking in, is to tell everyone, DON’T BUY IN CYPRUS, the Greeks will steal your property

Do you think we would believe you? :lol:

What an obvious one-sided presentation.

Conor was untrustworthy from the outset with his forceful manner, here. Bandwagoning Turks are even more detrimental to his "reputation".

That must be the most blatant propaganda you have ever posted, and is bollocks, and you know that!!

For god sake read the post, Conor did not do anything WRONG, he done everything expected from him to comply with the contract and the laws, the land and house was stolen from him, that is a fact, but as usual you live in your own fantasy lane.


you are a fool women :wink:

Conor O’Dwyer’s lawyer speaks out

Conor O’Dwyer’s lawyer was interviewed on Cyprus radio channel CyBC 2 by Rosie Charalambous about the criminal case against property developer Karayiannas and Michelle McDonald, the woman now living in Conor’s home.


There is a link to listen to the interview here:

http://www.news.cyprus-property-buyers.com/2011/01/21/conor-odwyers-lawyer-speaks-out/id=006630

EARLIER this evening Conor O’Dwyer’s lawyer, Yiannos Georgiades, spoke with Rosie Charalambous on the CyBC Radio 2 programme ‘Round and About’ about the criminal case against property developer Karayiannas and the woman now living in Conor’s home, Michelle McDonald.

Here are Mr Georgiades opening remarks and background to the case:

“First of all I would like to clarify that it was a private prosecution, it was a criminal case. It wasn’t the Civil Case that is still pending through which Conor is pursuing his rights and is asking for remedies. This is just a private prosecution under Section 303A of the Penal Code.

And according to this section of the Penal Code the developer or anybody really, cannot sell or rent or in any other way give possession of a house to a third person which he knows belongs to another person.

So in this case Conor bought this house and he was according to the Supreme Court Judgement in Cyprus he was the owner, the beneficial owner, from the moment he filed the contract of sale with the Land Registry.

That was done in 2006. In 2006 Conor bought his house with his wife and they filed their contract with the Land Registry. They paid CYP66,000 and later on because of disputes he had with the developer, the developer decided unilaterally to terminate this contract and sell it to another person although he knew that it belongs to Conor and although he knew that he should go to court – the civil court – in order to decide whether he could lawfully terminate this contract and sell it to another person.

Well, the thing is that the second buyer – it seems like she knew about Conor’s purchase of this house and still she carried on buying the house and that is why in this criminal prosecution we filed the case also against the second buyer. Because according to the law, section 303A, anybody who is entering into transactions of selling or renting or getting a house belonging to another is liable for criminal offence.”

In 1974 Turkish Cypriots stole the houses of 185,000 indigenous Cypriots and you thought it was a GREAT idea!

Idiot!

Conor, politicized a commercial dispute and is now paying the price as he should.

Let it be a lesson to anyone else out there who is contemplating politicizing a commercial dispute in a politically troubled country like Cyprus.

You’ll lose!

Whether he was right or wrong, most of us don’t know as we don’t know all the details, but it no longer matters to us...

...anyway it's not over yet.

...hats off to Conor, since his diligence has forced Cypriot legislators to look at the reform of laws which can stand a change or two.
