INTRODUCTORY ARTICLE BY PROF. DR. ATA ATUN

You are now reading my maiden article in this very fresh column of Cyprus News, titled “ATUN FACTOR”.

Most probably you’ll be wondering “who’s this guy” and what would be the contents of his column.

Actually I am a Turkish Cypriot and an academician with a very interesting background. Well educated in US universities and elected as a Member of Parliament, representing the constituency of Famagusta in the National Assembly as young as in the age of 26.

Of course, after entering the politics at so young age, I just couldn’t escape from it, nor the politics could kick me out. Political experience as a parliamentarian, turned out to be a further postgradu-ate study for me, later in my life.

In depth knowledge of the Cyprus history, especially the gr...

CYPRUS IS THE HOME OF TWO NATIONS NOT ONE

CYPRUS IS THE HOME OF TWO NATIONS NOT ONE

In August 1960 a partnership state between Turkish and Greek Cypriots was set up in accordance with the international agreements signed by the Turkish Cypriot and Greek Cypriot sides, as well as the Turkish, Greek and British governments.

However, in 1963, only three and a half years later, the Turkish Cypriots were ousted by brutal force from all organs of this infant re-public by their Greek Cypriot partners in clear breach of the founding agreements, treaties and the Constitution.

The claim thereafter put forth by the Greek Cypriots to represent the “Republic of Cyprus” has been illegal, and has not been recognized by Turkey.

Then a grave period, stretching from 1963 to 1974, took place on the island; a time that was more than a nightmare for Turkish Cypriots...

WASN’T DIRECT TRADE ALREADY PAID FOR?

WASN’T DIRECT TRADE ALREADY PAID FOR?

Between March 2003 and April 24, 2004, Turkish Cypriots were systematically kept under a heavy bombardment of propaganda and brainwashing.
Also during this period, Turkish Cypriots were consistently de-ceived with “Euro showers” — huge grants to NGOs with pseudo-promises such as, “If you vote yes, the embargoes will be lifted.” As a result a 65 percent majority voted “yes” in the April 24 Annan plan referendum. Naturally the manipulations were over the next day.

At this time a new concept known as “manufacturing public per-ception” was carried into effect by acknowledging communal weak points and ruthlessly brainwashing Turkish Cypriots.

Close your eyes for a moment and recall rallies, the popping-up of pseudo-political parties, broadcas...

KKTC AUTHORITIES SHOULD PROSECUTE ARESTIS

KKTC AUTHORITIES SHOULD PROSECUTE ARESTIS

The decision in the Myra Xenides-Arestis case of December 2006, for which there had been an application for referral to the Grand Chamber by both Turkey and the applicant, has not been accepted and the judgment [of December 2006] became final. Concerning the ownership of this property, her grandfather, Mr. Mavrodi Haji Hambi Mavreli, managed to register illegally — probably with trickery, this property to his name on Sept. 15, 1913, in the land registry office of Cyprus, although it was already the property of a Mulhaq Vakf, named Abdullah Pasha.

After 35 years, on Oct. 5, 1949, he granted this property to his daughter Anna Mavroudi Haji Hambi and finally Mrs. Hambi granted this very property to her daughter, then Mira Xenidu, on Feb. 28, 1974.

This is a representati...

WHO DESTROYED THE INDEPENDENCE OF CYPRUS?

WHO DESTROYED THE INDEPENDENCE OF CYPRUS?

In 1959 Turkey, Greece and Great Britain agreed on a formula to settle the Cyprus problem. It was obvious that Enosis (union with mainland Greece) was out of the question as long as the Turkish Cy-priots refused to accept it and Turkey supported them. A compromise proposition for “double Enosis” had been turned down by the Greek side, so the only remaining solu¬tion seemed to be “independence” for Cyprus.
After full consultations with the leaders of the two peoples, the Zurich and London Agreements were drawn up. The Turks and Greeks of Cyprus were to become co-founders of the republic and Enosis in any form was to be prohibited, with its prevention guaranteed.
The two peoples were to be auto¬nomous in their communal af-fairs, while participating in the central govern...
