We accuse the United Nations of: Attempting to impose an illegal settlement upon the Cypriot people


 

We accuse the United Nations of attempting to impose an illegal settlement upon the Greek Cypriot people.

We accuse the UN of violating international law, the European Charter of Human Rights and the basic principles of the UN Charter and the European acquis.

We accuse the UN of legitimising Turkey’s war crime of ethnic cleansing, for which Turkey was found guilty by the Council of Europe’s Human Rights Court.

We accuse the UN of complicity in ignoring Turkey’s violation of the Geneva Conventions resulting in the influx of over 100,000 colonists into the Turkish occupied north of Cyprus.

We accuse the UN of seeking foremost to appease Turkey and not to redress the legitimate grievances of the refugees.
