Turkish Cypriot cannot use his land in Paphos as he lives in Pyla
It is reported that the application of a 55 year old Turkish Cypriot who applied to the Greek Cypriot Supreme Court to reclaim the three properties he inherited is rejected.
According to Politis newspaper, the Turkish Cypriot who was born in Poli, Paphos, inherited three properties from his mother and transferred them to his name in 2011. He later applied to Guardianship of Turkish Cypriot Properties to get permission to use the land but his application was rejected and his case was carried to court.
According to the Greek Cypriot Supreme Court’s decision the basic argument of the Turkish Cypriot “Guardianship of Turkish Cypriot Properties has taken its decision by a legal mistake, justification of usage of property by the Guardianship, being considered as a Turkish Cypriot who owns property in South Cyprus, is not possible because he is a Pyla resident.” And therefore even though the property in Paphos is his, as he resides in Pyla, the court decided not to give him the right to use his property.
