The TRNC Chamber of Commerce has reacted angrily to proposals for an increase in electricity prices.
In a press statement, it says that while price increases are seen as an easy way out for KIBTEK, this plan should not be pursued.
Instead it suggests that KIBTEK should concentrate on major non-payers. The Chamber says it cannot understand why private individuals are treated as criminals and punished with ever increasing bills.
It points out that the largest non-payers are local councils and government departments and asks why they are still allowed to get away with non-payment.
