UK behind Turkish terrorism in Cyprus

According to the BBC Radio 4 documentary programme “Document” transmitted on Monday 23 January 2006 evidence exists which shows that the UK was directly behind Turkish terrorism in Cyprus after it gained its independence in 1960 in order to bring about the partition of the island.

 

In a handwritten note written by British Army Major Ted Macey details were given of the locations of various arms and explosives that were being stored in civilian premises in Nicosia. According to one of Macey's former drivers who found the note after Macey’s execution, which British intelligence believes was carried out by Cypriot security forces, ammunition was smuggled in their car disguised to the Turks in State Express cartons of cigarettes and explosives were stored in the cellar of Androulas cabaret bar.

 

By the drivers admission Turkish terrorist militias out in the villages were being assisted by Major Macey under instructions of the British government or British forces since he would have had to obtain the ammunition from somewhere and account for it not coming back.

 

Other documents show that other members of British armed forces were up to their necks in gun running and espionage for the Turks and Turkish Cypriot terrorist militias.

 

In May 1964 senior RAF aircraftsman Keith Marley was arrested by Cypriot police after they discovered two mortars in the boot of his car along with incriminating letters from senior member of Turkeys civilian militias.

 

Documents from the national archives in London show that three other airmen were involved, the ringleader being corporal Sam Bass.

 

A Telegram from HQ British Forces Cyprus, states

 

“Bass has been deeply involved in gunrunning for the Turks. He has agreed to assist as a frogman at which he is proficient to meet Turkish submarines arriving over a period of 7 days for the landing of Turkish mainland volunteers at the rate of 200 to 300 a day. He professed to know many details of Turkish plans, including scope and method of landing operations, aimed at effecting partition of the island.”

 

A spy ring operated with members stationed in different parts of Cyprus. They had expensive diving equipment far beyond the needs or capabilities of most amateurs and were probably all members of a diving club in Cyprus called Omerous, an Anglo-American club, predominately American. Most of the meetings were held at the American embassy. Keith Marley, Sam Bass and Bill Brown were the only members from the British forces and the rest were Americans from the US Navy, Marines and Marine Embassy Guards. The men were never court-martialled but secretly flown out of the country as part of a cover-up.
