British citizens who, despite warnings, have bought property in the Turkish occupied areas of Cyprus may be forced to pay thousands of pounds as damage to the legal owners of the property, the Greek Cypriots.
Let me explain the reason:
• The Turkish occupied areas of Cyprus are occupied by the Turkish army since 1974.
• The Greek Cypriots who used to live in those areas (around 200,000), were forced to flee, thus abandoning their homes and properties.
• The Turkish regime in Cyprus gave that land to Turkish Cypriots and Turkish settlers who illegally took ownership.
Construction in occupied Cyprus has no ending.
• But according to international law and rulings by international and European Courts, the land belongs to the legal owners, which are the Greek Cypriot refugees.
• Despite warnings by the government of Cyprus, many Britons (and other nationalities as well) illegally bought land in the Turkish occupied areas from their “owners”.
The Turkish regime painted its so called flag on the occupied mountain of Pentadahtilos, deliberately overseeing the free areas.
According to The TIMES a European Court of Justice ruling, expected later this year, may cause huge problems to those who illegally bought land in occupied Cyprus.
Usurpers of Greek Cypriot land in the Turkish occupied areas may be forced to pay thousands of pounds in damages to the original Greek Cypriot owners of the land.
If they bought land and then built a house there, they may be forced to demolish their house and pay damages.

Supporting illegality is not worth it, is it?
Especially, when Europeans are acting against Europeans.
