Pauline's ECHR case against Turkey

Donation protected
I have been fighting the north Cyprus  legal system for 9 years to get my villa, stolen from me, back.   I have failed.

The only recourse I have is to take Turkey to the European Court of Human Rights and I would like
some financial help to do this.   

The villa was our dream retirement home, sadly my partner died in May 2016, and I believe his death was
partly due to the campaign of hate and intimidation  that was levelled against us.   He had a car driven at him at speed on one occasion and the only advice the Foreign and Commonwealth Office gave us was to 'leave the island for your own safety'.  The campaign was waged by the bank who now 'live' in my villa and was unremitting.

Of course the bank have endless funds, I do not ... having stopped counting the number of court appearances in north Cyprus when they reached 150.    Trying to get justice in a court where the language used is Turkish is frightening and off putting but I feel I owed it to my late partner to try.   His nickname became Agile after he managed to dodge the speeding car.   

I would be so happy to know that good can triumph over evil and that good things can happen to good people.  I know Agile watches over me and gives me the strength to carry on despite the odds.
