To add to its long list of woes, Nicosia Council has just been sued for TL 1 million, an amount that it will find hard to deliver.
The council is being sued by ASIN Construction Company because of non-payment of debts. The council had signed 4 cheques totalling TL 900,000 and dated 12th June 2012. However all these cheques bounced and the firm’s lawyer Akan Kursat sent a final payment demand to the Council which they received on 18th January. The Council was given 3 days to pay up but did not do so.
Accordingly Mr Kursat is has now started legal proceedings against the Council for TL 1 million to include lost interest and expenses.
