OXI ! NO !
The 5th Annan plan pays absolutely no heed to UN resolutions and has no respect for human rights or European democratic norms.
The text of the 5th Annan Plan can be found here http://www.annanplan.org/
Analysis of the 3rd Annan Plan can be found here http://www.enthymia.co.uk/annanplan/
Following are the main differences between the 5th Annan plan and the 3rd, which seeks to reward the RAPIST of Cyprus and punish their innocent victims.
The illegal Turkish occupation forces will be allowed to permanently remain on Cyprus soil in violation of over 100 UN Resolutions including Security Council resolution 353 (1974) and General Assembly resolution 3212 (XX1X) (1974) endorsed unanimously by the by the Security Council in resolution 365 (1974).
All of the Turkish colonists brought into Cyprus in violation of the Geneva Convention will be given full Cyprus citizenship.
Not one single refugee will receive full reinstatement of their property as demanded by the European Court of Human Rights and the north will be turned to an ethnically pure Turkish apartheid state because Annan has given the Turks the right to stop all Greek Cypriots from returning to the north from day one even if Turkey joins the EU!
In contravention of the Judgments of the European Court of Human Rights, which the Anann Plan will strike out permanently those refugees seeking reinstatement of their property, will NOT be allowed to return to the north or to live in their own homes ever at all.
The refugees proprieties will all effectively be completely confiscated since Annan states that the refugees will only be entitled to reinstatement of 1/3 of the value of their property and 1/3 of the total area except in the case of a dwelling that they have lived in for 10 years or built with their own hands and even then any land they own greater than one donum will still be confiscated even for those whose property is in Yialousa. This will make it totally impossible for anyone to make a livelihood out of their own land and their businesses and other assets. (Article 10, Para. 3c). If any Turkish Cypriot of Turkish colonist has built onto the land or property of a refugee owner he will be allowed to disposes the legal refugee owner and seek title to the entire property even if the refugee owner wishes it to be returned. On top of this even if a refugee were to get part of their property back the restitutions on settlement, establishment and ownership that are included in the Annan plan stop them from ever being allowed to live in it, use it or sell it in a free market.
NOT ONE Greek Cypriot will even be allowed back to their homes in the areas supposedly to be returned because Annan has allowed the illegal occupiers to choose to be re-housed or to stay there forever. No mechanism will exist to ensure that a refugee owner can repossess their property since Annan has clearly stated that all the provisions in his plan are in favour on the illegal occupiers and not the legal property owners.
NOT ONE PENNY in compensation will ever be paid out to anyone seeking compensation. Instead WORTHLESS compensation bonds and property appreciation certificates will be issued which will NEVER be redeemable since the refugees will unethically be asked to pay the compensation to themselves with their own money instead of Turkey which the ECHR has deemed legally culpable.
The Anann plan strips the refugees of 2/3 of their property against their will with no right to judicial recourse.
Attachment II Article 18 paragraph 5 states that NOT ONE PENNEY in compensation will be paid out to the refugees until AFTER 25 years.
Article 18 paragraph 4 states that this compensation must be paid by the refugees themselves.
Article 18 paragraph 2 states that NO INTEREST will start accruing on claims until after 6 years.
Article 18 paragraph 1 states that instead of the value of the refugees property being assessed on the basis of the value of comparable properties in the free areas the value of the property will be based on the current value in the occupied areas as it is today which of course is more than 10 or 100 times lower.
The refugees will not only be STRIPPED of their property, they will also be STRIPED of its value and they will not receive compensation until after 25 years and then only if they pay the compensation to themselves with their own money. While at the same time the Turks get to keep the property they illegally occupy and will make a fortune when the value of the property rises.
All cases being brought to the ECHR regarding compensation for loss of use of property will be thrown out and all new applications will be barred. Instead the refugees will once again be made to pay compensation to themselves.
NOT EVEN ONE PERCENT of additional territory will be returned to the Greek Cypriots. The occupation regime will be allowed to keep 29% of Cyprus territory 90% of which legally belongs to the Greek Cypriot refugees.
The Turkish Cypriots will be given 1/2 of the seats in the Senate even though they only make up 10 percent of the population and Greek Cypriots living in the occupied areas will not be allowed to vote for their own representatives in that area but instead the people will vote as Greek and Turkish Cypriots. (Annex I Article 22 Para. 3). In the Chamber of Deputies the 10% Turkish Cypriot minority will be treated as if it was 25%. The Turkish Cypriots will be given the right to effectively veto all legislation if 25% of them do not agree. Worse than that matters involving taxation, the federal budget, citizenship, treaties, election of the presidential council and many other matters will require 2/5 or 40% of the Turkish Cypriots to agree. This will make Cyprus completely UNGOVERNABLE.
The Turkish Cypriots will be given 1/3 of the voting (total 6) and non-voting seats on the Presidential Council and will also retain the right to veto all decisions.
The Presidency will rotate from Greek Cypriot to Turkish Cypriot every 20 months. Previously the Greek Cypriots were allowed to have two consecutive presidents followed by a Turkish Cypriot. Now the 10% Turkish Cypriot minority are treated as if the make up half the population. NO democratic accountability will exist whatsoever.
The Central Bank will treat the 10% Turkish Cypriot minority as if they made up 2/5 and 3/7 of the population.
The Supreme Court will treat the 10% Turkish Cypriot minority as if they made 50% of the population with an unspecified equal number of Greek and Turkish Cypriot judges leading to further deadlock.
The mechanism for resolving deadlock in any of the federal institutions is tantamount to ANARCHY (Annex I Article 36 Para. 6) with each side (any member of the Presidential Council, the President or Vice-President of either Chamber of Parliament, or the Attorney-General or the Deputy Attorney-General) being allowed to make an ad hoc interim decision, which will inevitably be contrary to that of the other party. None of the federal institutions will have any idea of who to follow and the system of government will TOTALLY COLLAPSE.
In the transitional period the Turkish Cypriots will be allowed to control the territory that will be allegedly by returned instead of the UN which will mean that the Greek Cypriot refugees who seek to return will have NO political representation to determine their own affairs at all and will be subjected to the Turkish military and civilian occupation. What happened in Constantinople will happen once again to the people of Cyprus with the Annan plan being used to inflict conditions of life on the Greek Cypriots calculated to bring about their physical destruction in whole or in part.
In the transitional period there will be two UNELECTED co-presidents alternating every calendar month.
The members of the European Parliament allocated to Cyprus will NOT even be allowed to be democratically elected but instead will be appointed in a way that will treat the 10% Turkish Cypriot minority as if the made up 1/3 of the population. Contrary to EU law and the registration of the electorate which is now taking place in Cyprus for the European elections which will allow 40,000 Europeans citizens to take part in the European elections, NO EU citizens will be allowed to vote for MEP's under the Anann plan.
The 10% Turkish Cypriot minority will be given four major departments to control including Defence and Foreign Affairs while the 90% Greek Cypriot majority will only be allowed four.
The Attorney General will be a Turkish Cypriot. The transitional Supreme Court will be appointed by Kofi Annan himself and will include three foreigners and will be headed by a foreigner thus THERE WILL BE NO JUSTICE for the refugees at all.
NOT ONE of the illegal Turkish colonists will be repatriated. NO PROVISIONS are made in the 5th Annan plan for their repatriation at all. ALL of the Turkish Colonists who have been given citizenship by the ILLEGAL OCCUPATION REGIME IN VIOLATION OF THE GENEVA CONVENTION will be allowed to remain and given full Cyprus citizenship.
Greek EU citizens who have the legal right to reside and work anywhere in the EU will be prevented from residing in Cyprus if their number exceeds 5% of the Greek Cypriot population for 19 years. After 19 years Turks from Turkey will be allowed to flood the entire island since the Cyprus people will have no control over citizenship.
The Greek Cypriots will NEVER be permitted to return and form the majority in any of the villages they were ethnically cleansed from in 1974. Annans restrictions mean that even if a Greek Cypriot village is empty today NO Greek Cypriot will ever be allowed back unless SIXTEEN TIMES as many Turkish Cypriots are allowed to colonise it at the same time (Article 3 Para 7 of the foundation agreement). These restrictions because they are on a village-by-village basis will make it impossible for the Greek Cypriots to form any kind of viable community in the north.
The limits imposed by the Annan plan on the number of Greek Cypriots who can go back to the occupied areas and that can reside in each village in these areas as stated in Article 3 Paragraph 7, effectively means that any Greek Cypriot who wishes to return to their home or reside in northern Cyprus is effectively FORBIDDEN FROM HAVING CHILDREN !
According to the Annan plan the restrictions in Article 3 Paragraph 7 are on a village by village basis and because the Annan plan also deliberately denies all Greek Cypriots and their children the right to hold Turkish Cypriot constituent sate citizenship because their mother language is not Turkish, if a child is born to any Greek Cypriot couple or several children are born to couples and the birth of these Greek Cypriot children causes the population of Greek Cypriots to exceed 6% of the population of the village they reside in, the Greek Cypriot children will be thrown out of the places they live.
On top of this the limits on the number of Greek nationals that can reside in Cyprus imposed by the Annan plan in Article 3 Paragraph 5, also effectively means that Greek nationals who wish to live or work in Cyprus are FORBIDDEN FROM HAVING CHILDREN !
In violation of EU law, from day one of the Annan plan taking effect and even after 19 years or if Turkey ever joins the EU the Turks will be allowed to prevent any unspecified and unlimited number Greek Cypriots from residing anywhere in the north under Article 3 Para 6 despite the targets set by Annan so the claim that even a limited number Greek Cypriots will be allowed to return is entirely false. After 19 years the restrictions on the rights of settlement of the Greek Cypriots will NOT BE lifted but will be MORE RESTRICTIVE than ever before and on top of that mainland Turks will be allowed to flood the entire island. NO Greek Cypriots will ever be allowed to settle in the north by the Turks, not form day one and not even after 19 years.
The constitution of the component state that will be created in the north states that will preserve its Turkish character and culture and Muslim religion. No mention is made of the fact that before the Turkish invasion 90% of its legal inhabitants and property owners were Greek Cypriots and no commitment is made to preserve its original Greek character, culture and religion. Turkish will be the only official language and the use of Greek will be restricted by the law. Anyone that does not have Turkish as their mother language will be subject to arbitrary expulsion even after 19 years according to the Annan plan and will not even have the right to vote. There will be nothing to stop the state of affairs in southeast Turkey where the use and teaching of the Kurdish language is forbidden, being implemented in the north of Cyprus in the case of Greek under the provisions of the Annan plan which will also allow the Turkish flag to be draped over every building as is the situation today in the fascist police state set up by the Turks in occupied Cyprus. The free formation and organisation of Greek Cypriot political parties in the north will be virtually outlawed in the same way as free Kurdish parties are outlawed in Turkey. (Articles 1, 3 para. 2 & para. 3, 73 para. 2, 74 para. 2, 76 para. 1 of the so-called “Turkish Cypriot constituent state” constitution)
The Turks and I say Turks since almost the entire population of the north will be made up of Turkish colonists will use Article 3 Para 6 to justify their restrictions. Even if the Turks should choose to recognise the targets of the Anann plan and there is no guarantee to ensure that, Annan has made it clear that even after 19 years the restrictions on the freedom of settlement will remain and the Greek Cypriots will be limited to 18% of the population in each village in the north so eventually an ethnically pure Turkish state will be created as a FAIT ACOMPLIS in the same manner as the Genocide of the Greeks of Constantinople all over again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Since the Annan plan demands that all rights of appeal to the European Court of Human Rights as strictly forbidden and requests the ECHR to throw out all cases no Greek or Greek Cypriot will have any means of securing their basic fundamental human rights.
The Turkish Armed forces will not be reduced until after 7 years and then only to 6000 only if Turkey gives its consent, which it is not required to do by the Annan plan. Even if Turkey joins the EU or 2018 the Turkish troops will still remain on Cyprus soil. All the Turkish forces will be FULLY ARMED WITH WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION AND WILL BE FREE TO CONDUCT MANOEUVRES. The UN will not have any powers to intervene to ensure even basic compliance with its targets.
Instead of the so-called federal government protecting the whole of Cyprus it is the constituent states that are mandated to do this. Cyprus will be left with NO armed forces and NO protection against renewed Turkish aggression and GENOCIDE. No peace-keeping force will be stationed on Cyprus to defend it and its people. The Turks will eventually be allowed to seize the whole of Cyprus.
UN Security Council resolution 353 (1974) demands the
complete and immediate withdrawal of all Turkish occupation forces from Cyprus
soil. The Annan plan fails to secure this and instead allows the occupation
forces to remain. UN General Assembly resolution 3212 (XX1X) (1974) which was
endorsed unanimously by the General Assembly and by the Security Council in
resolution 365 (1974) also demands the complete and immediate withdrawal of all
Turkish occupation forces without exception and demands that all of the
refugees be allowed to return to their homes in safety. The Annan plan instead
of allowing all of the refugees to return in safety imposes measures
deliberately designed to prevent the refugees from ever returning and expressly
limits the number of refugees who will be allowed back. UN Resolution 1987/19
(1987) of the Sub-comission on Prevention of Discrimination and Pretection of
Minorites demands "the full restoration of all human rights to the whole
population of Cyprus, including the freedom of movement, the freedom of
settlement and the right to property". The Annan plan pays no heed to this
resolution whatsoever and instead overturns it by deliberately restricting the
freedom of movement, the freedom of settlement and the right to property of the
Greek Cypriots. The same resolution also condemns the "implantation of
thousands of settlers from Turkey in the occupied territories in Cyprus".
The Annan plan instead of demanding that these illegal colonists who have been
implanted in the occupied areas of Cyprus in direct violation of the Geneva
Convention be repatriated to Turkey allows them all to stay.
The Annan plan construes to inflict conditions of life on the Greek Cypriots calculated to bring about their physical destruction in whole or in part and is thus in direct and deliberate contravention of Article 2(c) of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide which was ratified in UN General Assembly resolution 260 A (III) of 9 December 1948 and came into force on 12 January 1951.
Under Artice 3(b) of the above Convention the act of conspiracy to commit genocide is punishable. The Anann plan conspires to commit genocide.
Under Article 3(c) the Convention direct and public incitement to commit genocide is punishable. The referenda proposed by Kofi Annan to endorse his plan incite the public to commit genocide. These referenda also contravene UN Security Council resolutions 541 (1983) and 550 (1984) by purporting to recognise the constructional organs of the so-called "Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus" which these resolutions have declared legally invalid and have called on called on all states "not to facilitate or in any way assist this the aforesaid secessionist entity".
The UN Secretary General has not only breached his own organisations resolutions and charter but he has conspired to commit genocide and incited the perpetration of genocide. Under Article 4 of the Convention "persons committing genocide or any of the other acts enumerated in article III shall be punished, whether they are constitutionally responsible rulers, public officials or private individuals."
To sum up the Anann plan pays no heed to UN resolutions or international law and has absolutely no respect for justice or human rights. Its underlying principle and only purpose is to create an apartheid state and legalise the products of brutal Turkish aggression and savage unreciprocated Turkish perpetrated ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity. The Annan plan violates every principle by which the UN was created and contravenes the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and the International Declaration on Human Rights. It is completely undemocratic, unviable, unworkable, unjust and unethical and deprives the blameless Greek Cypriot victims of Turkeys aggression of their land and property that the European Court of Human Rights has judged that they still legally own and makes them pay compensation to themselves out of their own pockets while at the same time awarding their property to the people that illegally occupy it. The 90% Greek Cypriot majority gain absolutely nothing from this plan and will loose everything that they still have. They are made into second-class citizens in their own country and within the European Union and are deprived of their fundamental rights to freedom of movement, freedom of settlement and right to buy and own property. Their equality is not respected in any way shape or form and they are even deprived to the right to vote in democratic elections and the right to govern their own country. The illegal Turkish occupation is allowed to continue and the occupation troops and Turkish colonists are allowed to stay on Cyprus soil in direct violation of over 100 UN Security Council resolutions and the Geneva Convention. Deliberately and consequently the Greek Cypriot refugees are prevented from returning to their homes in safety as these resolutions and the judgements of the European Court of Human Rights demand.
The Annan plan is a hideous abomination and its creation on the basis of the discredited racist ideology of apartheid and appeasement of the brutal aggressor is one of the sickest and most obscene crimes against humanity in history and akin to legitimising the NAZI holocaust and giving thanks absolution and reward to its unrepentant perpetrators.
It is in the best interests of the people of Cyprus to reject the Annan plan unequivocally and to demand the immediate resignation of the Annan plan's creators and all those involved in putting this despicable hideous illegal and unethical monstrosity together. These criminals including Kofi Annan, Richard Holbrooke and Sir David Hannay who are all responsible for conspiring to perpetrate and incite a monstrous act of Genocide must be indicted and put on trial in front of the International Criminal Court and sentenced for their heinous and unethical behaviour
We appeal to the Republic of Cyprus and its instruments to rebuff all US, UN and British
efforts aimed at undermining its functionality, its aspirations and security through the Annan Plan and through future consideration of Turkish membership.
We appeal to the Republic of Cyprus and its instruments to demand without hesitation that Ankara accept the principles and the foundation jurisprudence of the EU in its bid to secure a date for accession negotiations and that it remove all its troops and colonists from Cyprus unconditionally and withdraw from
derogation demands regarding the reconcilement in Cyprus.
Stability in Cyprus can be achieved and ensured through the instruments and institutions of the EU. The only way Cyprus can function within the EU is as a multi-ethnic unitary state with no barriers to the freedoms of movement, settlement and property ownership and with full respect and implantation of the principles of justice, democracy and majority rule as in every other EU member.
There can be no room inside the EU for acquiescence to blackmail to the non-democratic mechanisms and structures of military regimes.
We demand swift and decisive action to ensure that Cyprus enters the EU without incident and threat from the regime in Ankara.
Write to Kofi Annan email@example.com and demand his immediate RESIGNATION.
