  • [01] LIBICKI TEXT - WITHDRAWAL

    A draft report on the plight of the Turkish occupied town of Famagusta, prepared by the Chairman of the European Parliament Committee of Petitions, will be withdrawn, following strong objections by most Committee members.

    Committee chairman Marcin Libicki was obliged on Thursday, after a strong reaction from most of the Committee members, to withdraw the draft document he had written, which had been presented as a report on Famagusta and which contained unacceptable references and inaccuracies.

    Cypriot MEP of the European People`s Party (EPP) Yiannakis Matsis said the document presented by Libicki as a report on Famagusta, fenced-off since the 1974 Turkish invasion of Cyprus, could not be accepted because it was ``inaccurate, contrary to reality and contained unacceptable points and references.``

    Matsis advocated the withdrawal of the document, a position shared by EPP. Head of the EPP group in the Committee of Petitions, British MEP Robert Atkins, proposed that the decision to withdraw the text or not be put to the vote. Libicki dismissed the proposal, a decision which resulted in commotion in the hall and confrontation with the majority of the MEPs.
