EL-SEN continues its battle with debtors

El-SEN last night disconnected electricity to the Famagusta and Guzelyurt waste water pumping stations.

Head of EL-SEN, Caglayan Cesurer said that unpaid bills amounted to TL 160,000 for Guzelyurt and TL 25,000 for Famagusta.

The mayors for both regions are up in arms saying that unless the pumping stations are reconnected immediately, the local population will be exposed to health risks.

Ortay Kayal, the Mayor of Famagusta said that there were on-going meetings with the Finance Ministry, KIB-TEK management and the Interior Ministry. The aim of these meetings was to reach a consensus on a payment by instalments plan. He said that KIB-TEK management should show more understanding of their predicament or resign.

Currently both plants are running using generators but this is only a temporary fix.
