    [01] Serdar Denktash on Karpass Greeks, President Clerides

    According to Anatolia agency (16:00 hours, 9.5.96) Serdar Denktash, leader of the Democratic Party, has alleged that the Karpass peninsula Greek Cypriots who will be elected to the Cyprus House of Representatives during the 26 May elections should be expelled from the pseudostate.

    In a statement, Denktash called on "officials" to do whatever is necessary to immediately expel the Greek Cypriots who are elected.

    Serdar Denktash also outrageously asked that President Glafcos Clerides, who, as he says, is a member of EOKA (National Organization of Cypriot Fighters), which, as he claimed, has a large share in the creation of the Cyprus problem be declared a "war criminal".

    "Especially foreign missions must be alert and be aware of the facts about the Greek Cypriot leader, who launched a worldwide propaganda attack against President Rauf Denktash on the missing persons issue" Serdar Denktash claimed.

    [02] Turkish Assembly votes to launch inquiry on Ciller

    According to TRT Television network (17:00 hours, 9.5.96) it has been decided to start a parliamentary inquiry about former Prime Minister Tansu Ciller on the grounds that she misused her office and caused the state to incur damages by using her influence in the sale of state shares in TOFAS (Turkish Automobile Factory Corporation) and meddling in the relevant tender. The inquiry motion was approved by 376 to 141. Two votes were declared invalid.

    [03] Atun to inaugurate "Cyprus Home" in Istanbul

    According to KIBRIS (10.5.96) the so-called prime minister of the pseudostate Hakki Atun will be leaving the occupied area for Istanbul to inaugurate the "Cyprus Home". He will return to the occupied area tomorrow. (MY)

    [04] Assembly of Turkish-American Associations delegation to visit the occupied area

    According to KIBRIS (10.5.96) a delegation from the Assembly of Turkish-American Associations (ATAA), headed by its chairman Nuri Sabancu, will be visiting the occupied area on 13 May.

    The 31-member delegation also includes former Ambassador Sukru Elekdag who helped the establishment of ATAA.

    The delegation will meet Turkish Cypriot community leaders and upon return to the USA will try to promote the Turkish Cypriots views regarding the Cyprus problem among the Americans. (MY)

    [05] A Religious Foundation to be established in the occupied area

    According to KIBRIS (10.5.96) the chairman of the Turkish Religious Affairs Mehmet Nuri Yilmaz has arrived in the occupied area, to conduct work for the establishment of a Religious Foundation in the occupied area. (MY)


    [06] Occupied area a heaven for burglaries

    Hasan Kahvecioglu writing in ORTAM (10.5.96) under the title "A heaven for burglaries" says: "At last, after 22 years we have succeeded in turning North Cyprus into a heaven. We have turned it into a heaven for burglaries where burglars and thieves from Turkey 'proudly' claim in court that our laws are 'not severe' and that the Turkish Cypriots are cowards".

    Kahvecioglu goes on to say that thieves in Turkey try to acquire one or two pistols and a mask and then they immediately head for the occupied area to engage in burglaries since they consider the occupied area as a heaven for burglaries, its laws as not severe and its people as cowards.

    Kahvecioglu "congratulates" the Turkish Cypriot leadership for succeeding in turning the occupied area into a heaven for burglaries. (MY)
