Of course the US will side with Turkey so they can have their bases there to attack all and sundry from.

Another example of the United States sticking their noses in other peoples business. What gives them the right to go against the EU findings.

britmjm posted Renting a room on the Cyprus forum:
I am a 52 year old UK citizen presently living with my Ukrainian wife in Crimea. I am potentially looking to start a new life for us anywhere in Cyprus but going on ahead. Initially I would like to rent (a room will be fine) as cheaply as possible on a short term basis (month by month preferable). Any help appreciated. Michael

Hi I currently own and run a letting agency in the SA and we are now seriously considering moving abroad to get a better lifestyle and weather. We are seriously fed up with just about everything in SA- government, cost of living, taxes, traffic, weather, crime, education - you name it! I would ideally like to buy a trading property management Business which looks after and maintains rental property in the Paphos area, although may consider something else, but think it is best to stick to what I know. Does anyone know of any such Businesses for sale, or any site or agency that deals in selling Businesses. we are coming to Cyprus in December 2014 to have a look at property to purchase so could visit any relevant Businesses during the period 6.12- 15.12

Dear Lourens, I'm a recent member of ExpatExchange and saw your message in the forum. I assume that by now you are in Cyprus. If you are still looking for business and real estate opportunities, perhaps I can be of help to you. Kind regards, Chara

THE FEDERAL COURT OF UNITED STATES OF AMERICA REJECTED GREEK CYPRIOTS' REQUESTS TO RETURN NORTHERN CYPRUS OR TAKING COMPENSATION (09.October.2014): The news of the decision of the Court: (13.10.2014):http://www.courthousenews.com/2014/10/13/72392.htm The website of the case of the Court: http://dockets.justia.com/docket/district-of-columbia/dcdce/1:2009cv01967/139002 The decision of the Court.....: http://docs.justia.com/cases/federal/district-courts/district-of-columbia/dcdce/1:2009cv01967/139002/53 "..Greek Cypriots CANNOT CLAIM that the government in control of Northern Cyprus gave their homes to Turkish Cypriots.... Although the United States does not recognize it as a state, the TRNC purportedly operates as a DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC with a president, prime minister, legislature and judiciary... TRNC is NOT VULNERABLE to a lawsuit in Washington" NOTE: Previously, The European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) rejected Greek Cypriots' request to return Northern Cyprus: 27.05.2010: ECtHR: “The places where Greek Cypriots migrated from north of Cyprus are NO LONGER THEIR HOMES SINCE GREEK CYPRIOTS HAS LIVED ALMOST ALL OF THEIR LIVES IN OTHER PLACES AND HAVE NO CONCRETE AND PERSIST?NG LINKS WITH THE PROPERTY THEY CLAIMED. That's why, Greek Cypriots have no right to return back to the north” (Tasos Asproftas: [Application no. 16079/90] and Marianna Petrakidou [Application no. 16081/90]). http://hudoc.echr.coe.int/sites/eng/Pages/search.aspx#{"fulltext""Asproftas"],"documentcollectionid2""CASELAW"],"itemid""001-98684"]} http://hudoc.echr.coe.int/sites/eng/Pages/search.aspx#{"fulltext""Petrakidou"],"documentcollectionid2""CASELAW"],"itemid""001-98688"]} (The Greek Cypriots objected to the decision of ECtHR and took the case to the referral of the Grand Chamber of ECtHR; 18.10.2010: ECtHR Grand Chamber rejected Greek Cypriots as well, and THE DECISION THAT "THE RETURNING BACK TO THE NORTH CYPRUS IS IMPOSSIBLE" was finalized as a CASE LAW: (Rejection of Asproftas and Petrakidou) (ECtHR Referral Decisions: http://www.mediafire.com/view/?izlctlan0vm7le9 ) Cases referred to the Grand Chamber Referrals accepted (page 1) ..................................................................... Requests for referral rejected (page 1) .............................. Asproftas v. Turkey and Petrakidou v. Turkey (nos. 16079/90 and 16081/90); judgment of 27.05.2010 (page 3) That is to say, "THE RETURNING BACK TO THE NORTH CYPRUS IS IMPOSSIBLE" became a UNIVERSAL CASE LAW via decisions of USA Federal Court and European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR). In the case where Greek Cypriots filed, HSBC was also among the suited sides. By the decision of USA Federal Court, it also became clear that: INTERNATIONAL COMPANIES MAKE BUSINESSES IN NORTHERN CYPRUS FREELY WITHOUT FACING ANY LEGAL ISSUE. (IT IS ENOUGH FOR INTERNATIONAL COMPANIES TO SHOW THIS DECISION OF USA FEDERAL COURT IN CASE OF ANY INCONVENIENCE. INTERNATIONAL COMPANIES CAN STATE THAT "EVEN THE AUTHORITY OF USA FEDERAL COURTS DOES NOT COVER NORTHERN CYPRUS" IN ANY INCONVENIENCE THEY FACED. THE LAW SYSTEM OF NORTHERN CYPRUS WAS ACCEPTED IN EUROPE AS WELL: Not only the "Immovable Property Commission (and related laws) of Northern Cyprus but also ALL LAWS OF NORTHERN CYPRUS WERE ACCEPTED IN EUROPE (European Court of Human Rights): ECtHR Decision 02.07.2013, App. nos. 9130/09 and 9143/09; Pavlides v. Turkey; Georgakis v. Turkey http://hudoc.echr.coe.int/sites/eng/Pages/search.aspx#{"fulltext""Pavlides"],"documentcollectionid2""CASELAW"],"itemid""001-122907"]} ECtHR: "...notwithstanding the lack of international recognition of the regime in the northern area, a de facto recognition of its acts may be rendered necessary for practical purposes. Thus, THE ADOPTION BY THE AUTHORITIES OF THE "TRNC" OF CIVIL, ADMINISTRATIVE OR CRIMINAL LAW MEASURES, AND THEIR APPLICATION OR ENFORCEMENT WITHIN THAT TERRITORY, may be regarded as HAVING A LEGAL BASIS in domestic law for the purposes of the Convention". Note: In the above related case, the Greek Cypriots were immediately rejected and their case application was found to be "inadmissible" by ECtHR.
