Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Serdar Denktaş, has criticised the former Turkish Cypriot head of the EU Coordination Centre in North Cyprus, Erhan Ercin, regarding the distribution of EU funding in the TRNC.

According to Turkish Cypriot daily ‘Afrika’, Denktaş stated that 7.5 million Euro had been given to non-governmental or civil society organisations and that they have the right to know the reason why this amount was given to those organisations.

He also said that a list of each organisation that received the EU money, including the exact amount of money every organisation has received, should be made public as soon as possible.
