(To whom it may concern)

It has come to our attention that certain newspapers worldwide hint of your plans to put up a concert at the northern part of the Republic of Cyprus, thus promoting the illegal occupation by the Turkish forces.  If the rumours are true, your actions will whole-heartedly infuriate the citizens of the Republic of Cyprus who have been suffering  four decades of pain with 200,000 refugees, families of 1619 missing persons and the descendants of the thousands of brutally murdered soldiers and civilians.  

By supporting and promoting an illegal pseudo-state, a result of the brutal Turkish military invasion, your act is in direct conflict with many UN resolutions and International law. In addition, your actions ignore the extensive and on-going violations of human rights which occur from the day Turkey invaded Cyprus, a country which is a full member of the European Union since 2004. The pseudo-state, the so-called “Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus “TRNC”, is recognised only by Turkey.

In the previous years, there were a couple of similar incidents with prominent artists such as Julio Iglesias and Jennifer Lopez planning to put up a concert in the occupied areas of Cyprus, and after some legitimate steps that were taken their plans were withdrawn realising that their acts would in effect legitimise a crime against humanity.

Thank you in advance for your co-operation and understanding.

Yours sincerely,

Aristotle Glyky

Secretary of Expats and Foreign Relations
