The court decision against the British couple of David and Linda Orams, concerning the property of Greek Cypriot Meletis Apostolides in northern Cyprus, is still valid, Apostolides’ lawyer Constantis Candounas told CNA.
Candounas was asked to comment on the landmark case “Apostolides v. Orams”, following reports in the Turkish Cypriot press indicating that the British couple sold the house for 160,000 pounds. The lawyer noted with interest that the British couple was able to retain possession of the property until recently. It is up to Apostolides to explore his options concerning various legal paths, Candounas concluded.
Speaking to CNA, Apostolides interpreted this development as a move to encourage potential real estate buyers in North Cyprus. He also said that he has not decided yet if there is room for any new legal measures against the Orams.
