Sertoglu called on Akinci to work towards lifting the sport embargoes


Turkish Cypriot daily Halkin Sesi newspaper (15.06.17) reports that Hasan Sertoglu, the “chairman” of the “Turkish Cypriot football federation” commented on the recent statements by Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci on the “embargoes imposed on the Turkish Cypriots” and called on him to take action against these practices.

Akinci alleged last Tuesday that the prevention of the “right: of holding sports in the breakaway regime is one of the biggest problems faced on the “embargoes issue” and claimed that it is “a crime against humanity”.

Referring to Akinci’s statements, Sertoglu expressed the belief that the Cyprus negotiation that continue will have no results; therefore they should all work towards lifting the “embargoes”. “Because we got bored playing between us”, he stated.
