7 September 2014

Online social media movement Toparlanıyoruz (Let’s Get It Together) has requested information from the Attorney General’s Office asking on what grounds had it decided that President Eroğlu did not need to make a declaration of property in 2010, ‘Kibris Postasi’ reports.

In statement issued last week, the Toparlanıyoruz Movement, founded by chief Turkish Cypriot negotiator Kudret Özersay, said that a response regarding Eroğlu’s declaration of property was given by the Parliamentary Spokesperson’s Office in which it was admitted that Eroğlu had not made a declaration of property after being elected as the President in 2010, despite the fact that it was compulsory according to regulations. The statement went on to say that the Attorney General’s Office had taken the view that Eroğlu did not need to make a property declaration.

“It is not clear who decided that Eroğlu’s declaration of property in 2009 was sufficient legally. And we also want to know about allegations that say President Eroğlu didn’t make a declaration of property in 2010, as is compulsory for the elected to do so. In addition to that, we request information from the Attorney General’s Office regarding their alleged opinion about this and if their opinion was the basis for lack of declaration of property then they should tell us on what grounds they had [formed] such an opinion”.
