Settlers accused Akinci for showing a separatist and discriminatory stance


Turkish Cypriot daily Vatan newspaper (24.09.15) under the title: “Reaction to Akinci by the “TRNC NGO’s Initiative””, reports that “TRNC NGO’s Initiative” which is composed by 20 NGO organizations which were established in the occupied area of Cyprus after 1974 by Turkish settlers, expressed strong criticism to the Turkish Cypriot leader, Mustafa Akinci.

The “Initiative” condemned strongly Akinci for not inviting them to the meeting called “Dialog and Cooperation with the Civil Society” which was held the other day in order to brief them on the latest developments on the Cyprus problem.

The “initiative” accused Akinci and his delegation of “not embracing the whole community” and for showing a separatist and discriminatory stance.

In a written statement on behalf of the “initiative”, Bertan Zaroglu said: “Akinci elaborated not to invite to the meeting with civil society organizations which were established by citizens who came to our country from Turkey after 1974 and by doing this, he made discrimination towards the NGO organizations”.

Zaroglu called Akinci to announce the criteria he used to send out the invitations.

Zaroglu added also that they will reject any possible solution plan to the Cyprus problem.
