Please practise what you breach in your own backyard first

If Cyprus holds such store with international law, a good start would be to ensure that all buyers of real estate were automatically granted their title deeds on the day of purchase of either land or buildings.

Instead there exists in Cyprus a system whereby many tens of thousands of purchasers have been duped out of their title deeds by developers, lawyers and financial institutions and hence of legal ownership, a reality condoned by successive governments, including the current one which bleats on about ‘international law’.

They should therefore practise what they preach in their own backyard.


Cyprus is defender of international law
