9 October 2013

Two years ago on July 19th, there was a major demonstration against the economic plan prepared by Turkey for the TRNC.

The demonstration which was staged in 2011, in front of the old Chapel head office in Nicosia, turned violent.

Six activists were arrested and were, yesterday, finally brought to court.

However, the prosecution confused the names of the defendants and then claimed that a chief prosecution witness was not available.

They were given a final date of October 24th to present their case.
