"65 Turkish Cypriots have sought properties in the south
By George Psyllides
THERE have been 65 cases of Turkish Cypriots demanding their properties in the government-controlled areas, Interior Minister Andreas Christou said yesterday.
Christou was speaking at a news conference at which he reviewed the work of his ministry since he took office around two years ago.
Out of the 65 cases, 10 sought recourse in court, the minister said.
�Most do not ask for their house to be returned if (Greek Cypriot) refugees live in it; they settle for a house we propose to them or another piece of land,� Christou said.
He added: �However, we have 10 cases, which have proceeded to law suits and court measures demanding various things.�
In most cases, Turkish Cypriots mainly inquire about property issues."
