ABD’de KKTC’de mülklere ilişkin olarak Türkiye aleyhinde 400 milyar dolarlık dava açıldı.


Class Action isimli Amerikalı bir grup, KKTC’de mülk bulunanların mülklerini kullanmadığı gerekçesiyle Türkiye’ye 400 milyar dolarlık hukuk davası açtı.

ABHaber’e göre, konuya ilişkin olarak Washington’da yayımlanan bir basın bildirisinde, 19 Ekim’de Türkiye aleyhine, Kıbrıs’ın kuzeyindeki mülklerini kullanma hakkından yoksun olan binlerce mülk sahibiyle ilgili Class Action tarafından bir dava açıldığı” belirtildi.

Bildiride, “Mülklerin kullanımından mahrum edilmenin, 1974’te Kıbrıs Cumhuriyeti’nin yüzde 40’nın müdahale sonucu gasp edilmesiyle başladığı ve bugüne kadar devam ettiği” savunuldu.

“Son günlerde ortaya çıkarılan sivillere ve diğerlerine ait toplu öldürmelerin uluslararası toplum tarafından kınandığı, Türkiye’nin modern toplumla işbirliği yapmadığı” iddia edilen bildiride, “Maalesef Türkiye Cumhuriyeti’nin, Türk askerlerinin mevcudiyeti vasıtasıyla KKTC’yle işbirliği halinde müessif tavrı devam ediyor” savına da yer verildi.

Hukuk davasında yerlerini terk etmeye zorlanan yaklaşık 200,000 göçmen ve diğerlerinin mülklerini kullanmaktan mahrum edilmelerinin bedelini ödemesi isteniyor.http://w9.gazetevatan.com/ABDdenTurkiyeye_400_milyar_dolarlik_dava_/268878/1/haberprint.asp?Newsid=&tarih=&Categoryid=

Dear Fellow Turkish Americans :

The Greek Cypriot land claims class action is titled, Michali Toumazou et al. v. Turkey and TRNC. The case alleges the illegal taking of property by Turkey and the TRNC.  Turkey is sued as a foreign sovereign, while the TRNC is sued as a “unincorporated association of organized crime.”


In 1993-98, my law firm defended a similar case, Crist v. Turkey and the Turkish Armed Forces.  The case went all the way to the Federal Court of Appeals in DC and back to the District Court, and established federal precedent (995 F. Supp. 5; 1998 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 1832, January 23, 1998). Below, please find two news article regarding the 1994 Crist case, “Rumlar yine kaybetti (Sabah, Savas Suzal), and “Turkiye’nin Hukuk Zaferi” (Milliyet, Yasemin Congar).

Three plaintiffs, Takey Crist and the Rossides brothers, who are also leaders in the Hellenic public advocacy network, sued for $7.5 million for 19 plots of land they claimed in Girne and Gazi Magusa.  Our investigation traced all titles to the Abdullah Pasha Foundation in the Ottoman Empire, from which the lands had been illegally taken by the British and given to the Greek Cypriots.  The Turkish Republic and the Turkish Armed Forces won the five-year legal battle on various grounds.  Importantly, the Federal Court held:

“Plaintiffs are merely stacking one hypothetical upon another and with each additional hypothetical, the possibility that their underlying contention has merit decreases exponentially.  It is evident from consideration of these assertions that plaintiffs’ claim of jurisdiction is groundless and strung together with a bare thread of speculation. . . .”  Furthermore, the court registered for the record:  “A Greek Cypriot movement for union with Greece accelerated after World War II, punctuated by acts of terrorism and violence directed against Turkish Cypriots . . .  In reliance on the Treaty of Guaranty, Turkish forces invaded Cyprus and by the time hostilities had been quelled one month later through the establishment of a cease-fire, Turkey occupied the northern one-third of the island.  The Turkish Cypriots established a functioning government in 1975 as the Turkish Federated State of Cyprus and in 1983, the state declared itself the independent nation of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.”

As with all lies and defamation, the Crist lies could not withstand the truth and the rule of law.  The Toumazou allegations face a similarly stiff challenge.
