Omer Faruk Oz who has invited CTP MP Dogus Derya to apologise for the statement in the TC parliament gave an interview to TRT and said that he was expecting Derya’s apology through press.
Speaking to Kıbrıs Postası CTP MP Doğus Derya responded to Öz’s words and said that “how dare he asks me to apologize while its him who should be apologizing from us”.
Derya went on to say that Öz’s words were a disrespect against the dignity of the Turkish Cypriot community. “How can a MP from another country can ask an MP of another country to apologize for what they said in their own parliament?” asked Derya who said Öz didn’t really comprehended the meaning of her words. Derya said that Öz was either unaware of what she said in the parliament or was intentionally manipulating her words in order to provoke an attack against her.
On the other hand Öz said during an interview with TRT that they were going to bring legal action against Derya through the Turkish Embassy in Nicosia, but it is unclear what legal way exists for such an accusation against an MP for their opinion.
