come to my attention that the British Liberal Democrat MEP for London,
Baroness Sarah Ludford entered into the Republic of Cyprus through the
illegal Tymbou airport somtime between the dates of 30/1/2005 and 7/2/2005,
along with Liberal Democrat councillor Meral Ece
only is this a deliberate violation of the laws of the Republic of Cyprus which
expressly prohibit the use of the illegal airport in Tymbou village as a
means to enter the Republic's territory which includes all of the territory
in the occupied areas in the north, which it is prevented from exercising
its authority in by the presence of 40,000 illegal Turkish occupation
troops which have been stationed there for over 30 years in violation of
repeated UN resolutions, the UN Charter and international law, but this is
also an express violation of UN Security Council Resolution 541 (1983) and
Resolution 550 (1984) which declare the illegal secessionist state set
up by the Turkish occupying forces in Cyprus "legally invalid"
and call upon all members not to recognise the illegal secessionist state
and its organs in any way and not to engage any action which might
exacerbate the situation or assist the pseudo-state in any way and call
upon all members to respect the sovereignty, independence and territorial
integrity of the Republic of Cyprus, by an elected European official and representative
of the European Union and European Parliament.
Sarah Ludford's illegal entry into the occupied areas of the Republic of
Cyprus also constitutes a serious violation of the European Parliament's
own Codes of conduct; specifically Rule 9 and Annex XI of the 'Rules of
Procedure of the European Parliament' and Section II. G of the 'Guide to
the obligations of officials and servants of the European Parliament Code
of Conduct' which states it is the "duty of officials and other
servants to fulfil their private obligations and comply with the laws and
police regulations in force."
Sarah Ludford was fully aware that she was engaging in an illegal act in
violation of EU Law and the Laws of the Republic of Cyprus since she stated
to journalists that she regretted that her illegal flight had to stop over
in Turkey before entering the occupied areas of the Republic of Cyprus.
During this stop over in Turkey she was informed that entry through Tymbou
airport was not permitted for the flight she boarded and that the plane
would have to wait in Turkey until it was relabelled as a flight of the
illegal Turkish Cypriot airways, in order to avoid legal action against the
planes owners and the original airport it set out from. At any point during
this time when she was aware what she was doing was illegal she could have
stepped off the plane and returned home.
Section III D of the 'Guide to the obligations of officials and servants of
the European Parliament Code of Conduct' members of the public are entitled
to have their complains heard.
therefore demand that the European Parliament the European Liberal
Democrats Group and the British Liberal Democrats investigate Baroness
Sarah Ludford MEP and councillor Meral Ece for misconduct and take
disciplinary action against them both to ensure that this serious breach of
Cyprus and international law can never occur again.
