No repatriation of settlers: Siber

Speaker of the Assembly and presidential candidate Sibel Siber has said that settlers in North Cyprus would not be repatriated in the event of a solution to the Cyprus problem.

Dr Siber was answering questions follow a speech she delivered at the Eastern Mediterranean University.

She said that the settlers are TRNC citizens and that there is absolutely no reason for their repatriation. Such an act would be a breach of Human Rights, she said, noting that the settlers who came to North Cyprus after 1974 had even voted in the Annan Plan referendum. “The EU and the UN are aware of this”, she added.
