A Killer is a Candidate in the Upcoming "TRNC" Elections


Turkish settler, Kenan Akin, who killed Greek Cypriot Solomos Solomou during an anti occupation buffer zone protest back in 1996 said he would not hesitate to shoot him again. In an interview to a Greek daily, Akin said he would not travel abroad as he won't do anyone a favor and get arrested.

The Turkish settler currently has Interpol and Cyprus police warrants pending against him. He further claimed that the Republic of Cyprus does not have any credible evidence against him, suggesting that his bullet wasn't the one that killed Solomou.

Akin is a candidate in the upcoming illegal parliamentary elections which are to be held in the occupied areas. His running for "parliamentary elections" was mentioned in the Kibris Gazetesi, a Turkish Cypriot newspaper.

An English translation of the relevant excerpts from the Kibris Gazetsi:
KENAN AKIN now ORP candidate: Kenan Akin once a Democratic Party (DP) Minister of Agriculture, is once more in the political arena now. But this time running for parliamentary elections not from DP (Democratic Party) list, but competing at the 5th row from the Freedom and Reform Party (ORP) Magusa (Famagusta) list. According to sources of information, ORP President Turgay Avci is in the 1st row , followed by Deputy Erden Ozaskin in the 2nd row, and ORP Secretary-General Baghdad Sinan in the 3rd place. 4th row in the list is vacant yet while Kenan Akin is at the 5th row. Undersecretary of the Ministry of Economy and Tourism Hasan Kiliç's is also reported to be candidate for ORP's Magusa list, while there are talks about Nazmiye Çelebi, a teacher, also running for candidacy from Magusa list. Ministry of Foreign Affairs Coordinator Alper Zorlu's is also rumored to be ORP candidate from Iskele district.

HE DESERVED TO DIE? ALL THE TURKS IN CYPRUS DESERVE TO LEAVE AND LET US ALONE. SOLOMOS SOLOMOU WAS A HERO THAT DIDNT GIVE A SHIT ABOUT WHAT THE FUCKING TURKISH WERE TELLING HIM. CYPRUS IS OURS AND NOT YOURS. I WOULD AS WELL HAVE TAKEN ANY FLAG THAT DOES NOT BELONG TO MY NATION. MAY GOD BLESS ALL OF OUR HEROS AND MAY YOUR COUNTRY BORN SUCH PEOPLE AS OUR COUNTRY DOES. pali me xronia me kairous, pali dika mas 8'ane.

He was a Greek settler who happened to cross the border to test the Turkish reaction. The Turk's acted swiftly & decisively and ever since there has been no border intrusion, peace has prevailed as it had back in 1974. If Greeks can't learn their lesson in a civilized manner, why blame only the Turk's?
