 April 2014

by Ralph Kratzer

BowlingThe TFR Bowling “Cup of the Nations” is even moving into the Northern Cypriot print media from time to time. The newspaper Cyprus Today reported in detail on the 1st year anniversary of the event in March.

Last Wednesday again 24 players from different countries of origin gathered and, for the first time, included our youngest TFR-member Bsma from Israel.

5 teams were formed and all participants as always had a lot of pleasure with the funny competition at the King’s Pin Leisure Centre in Kyrenia.

In the team ranking this time Germany was in the lead, followed by the teams UK, Sweden, TRNC1 and TRNC2.

The ranking for the women showed at the end Sonja from Germany as the victor, Britt-Marie from Sweden and Gwynn from UK in ranks 2 and 3.

Among the men the top scorer was – again! – Brad (UK), followed by Ralph and Horst (both team Germany).

Look Out For Animal Scams Via Facebook

Look Out For Animal Scams Via Facebook

Hello animal lovers beware as the scammers will resort to any method to get you into their clutches .
Many thanks to Anmalcouriers for this warning and do keep up your good work helping make a good life for animals.

scam-aWe received an email from Louise who unfortunately fell victim to a puppy scam via Facebook. Once she found our ‘ beware of scams ‘ page on the Animalcouriers website, she realised her experience bore all the hallmarks people need to look out for in many types of scam:

  • A sob story
  • A free puppy, with just the transport costs to pay
  • Being rushed into a decision with lots of hassling phone calls and emails
  • Payment required via MoneyGram, with a payee address in Cameroon
  • A phone number to call that looks like a UK mobile number (starts 07, in this case 0702) but is actually a special number that costs a lot to call
  • Being asked to pay more money towards the pet transport partway through the process (when you already feel committed)

Louise asked us to help her warn others about the scam. Below is her story in…

North Cyprus – 50 Years of Embargoes

Northern Cyprus

50 Years of Embargoes

By Chris Elliott

Last weekend I had the opportunity of meeting up with Fevzi Fevzi Hussein and Mustafa BozkusGalatyali Hussein, the Chairman of the Embargoed organisation, together with his colleague, Mustafa Bozkus the Treasurer, who were on a visit to North Cyprus to promote their latest initiative to promote the need for change of the Cyprus Embargoes situation.

During their 36 hour visit to North Cyprus they had many meetings including President Dervis Eroglu and many other members of the Cabinet and attended TV and newspaper interviews to explain what Embargoed are trying to do to focus world attention to the ongoing unfair Embargoes which are imposed on the Turkish Cypriot people and you can read more of this below.

50 Years of Embargoes

Embargoed! have launched their newest campaign which seeks to highlight awareness of the fact that an unwanted anniversary has been reached, namely 50 years since the embargoes against Turkish Cypriots first came into place.

A hard-hitting campaign promo-video reinforces the tough message that a lifetime of embargoes has been in place and that this must stop.

The campaign itself, will go into top gear in early May when the House of Lords plays host to a “hard launch” sponsored by Baroness, Meral Hussein-Ece.

The campaign has massive potential and will be tapping into a completely new audience as Embargoed! seeks A presidential meetingto bring in a new angle to their lobbying capabilities. The campaign will invite creative ingenuity asking potential entrants to engage in understanding the Cyprus problem in a balanced and unbiased manner so that the issue of the embargoes comes to the fore.

Artistic platforms such as and will tap into a new audience giving this campaign a truly global feel.

It is anticipated that the schools in North Cyprus will also get involved in this initiative.

The best entries will be show-cased periodically and these will be going forward to a grand finale where the winner of the short-film category will also be shown at the Golden Island International Film Festival in the TRNC. Other categories include written material and Photography. Prize money of up to £1,000 will be available to the winners of each category.

A legacy exhibition consisting of the best material will also be set up and this will be shown in the European Parliament to highlight that the embargoes have now been in place for five decades. Other highlights of the campaign will include an innovative postcard campaign where 5,000 postcards will be available to Turkish Cypriots in the UK to post to their MPs, again raising awareness and seeking their support. A dedicated campaign website has also been set up ( ) which will be ready before the hard launch event.

Israel in talks with Egypt and Turkey on major gas export deals

Israel in talks with Egypt and Turkey

on major gas export deals

Gas PlatformIsrael’s drive to export its new-found natural gas could help to rebuild strained ties with old regional allies Egypt and Turkey, but could deprive Europe of a precious alternative to Russian gas.

Israel has in recent months already signed energy deals with Jordan and the Palestinian Authority, though relations with the Palestinians are at a low ebb, and now needs to expand its export horizons to cash in on its huge energy discoveries.

If all goes well, the latest developments could see first pipelines being laid between Israel and Turkey as soon as 2015, and gas cooperation between Israel and Egypt is also emerging, which would allow export access to Asia’s major markets.

A growing population and soaring demand have left Egypt’s own liquefied natural gas export (LNG) plants in need of new supply, as domestic shortages eat into seaborne exports through the Suez Canal to the world’s most lucrative market in Asia.

This has put Israel’s previous plans to pump its gas reserves into a future export plant in Greek Cyprus on the back burner, dealing a major blow to the indebted Mediterranean island’s ambitions to become a global player in the gas market.

A Greek Cypriot LNG export plant was due to deliver at least 5 million tonnes a year to Europe and Asia, allowing Europe to reduce its growing dependency on Russia, which has become of particular concern since the crisis in Ukraine cast a Cold War chill over East-West relations.

Israel’s new plans throw Greek Cypriot developments into doubt as investors would require more gas than Cyprus has on offer to make returns on multibillion-dollar investments.

“If Israel has really ditched Cyprus as a partner to develop the region’s gas resources, then we (Cyprus) really do have to find quite a lot more gas if we want to become a viable exporter, and that would inevitably throw our plans back by several years,” said one source involved in developing Greek Cyprus’s gas reserves.
