Pauline's ECHR case against Turkey

£1,100 of £10,000 goal

Raised by 36 people in 6 months
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.

I am so humbled by the level of support I am receiving...I would like to thank you all for your kindness.

I am still waiting for an official copy of the judgement from the TRNC courts.

This was my dream retirement home so cruelly snatched from me to satisfy a debt I did not incur by a bank who just does not care and a legal system that beggars belief.

I know the best I can hope for is compensation through the ECHR as I would never feel it would be safe to return to north Cyprus.

As I am now in my 73rd year, the right thing to do would be for the Bank or the Government to compensate me, but I know that is a pipe dream.

How sad is that?

£650.00 in 11 days....thank you...thank you....thank you.

Just to let you all know...TODAY is giving Tuesday.

£390 donated in six days.. not at all shabby.

Thank you to those who have donated..

Do you realise, if every one of my friends donated just £5.00 I would exceed my target and then so.

What do you reckon?
