  • [A] NEWS ITEMS

    [01] Forged US Dollars

    KIBRIS (4.6.99) reports that Denktash´s police arrested yesterday a Turkish mainlander, who arrived in the occupied area as a tourist, for possession of forged US dollars.

    Following a tip off, Denktash´s police arrested H.B. (full name not given).

    Following a search, police found in H.B´s possession 400 forged US dollar banknotes of the 100 USD denomination.

    A ``remand order'' was issued by the ``Court''.

    KIBRIS reports that H.B. was using a hired car.

    [02] Lawyers Hikmet and Gurkan killed by TMT, paper says

    AVRUPA (4.6.99) reports under the banner headlines ``See, Hear , Speak'' and says that ``the walls of silence'' regarding the killing of two Turkish Cypriot lawyers Ayhan Hikmet and Ahmet Gurkan 37 years ago have started tumbling down.

    AVRUPA reports that recently people started providing information about these killings which took place on 23 April 1962.

    AVRUPA reports that Ahmet Muzuffer Gurkan was shot dead by a ``hit-man'' of the terrorist organization TMT (Turkish Resistance Organization). It says that the hit-man, H.C., (full name not given) served the TMT until 1974 as commander of a squad. It reports that H.C died in 1984 in a hospital in Famagusta from excess use of alcohol and cirrhosis. However, adds the paper, H.C during his last days in hospital confessed the crime he had committed to a male nurse at the hospital.

    The male nurse, who is still alive, told AVRUPA that the day of the crime H.C and two friends of his from Nicosia met in ``Agora Pub'' in Famagusta, drank a bottle of Hacipavlou brandy and smoked a pack of ``Luck Dream'' cigarettes and then travelled in the ``Prefect´s'' can to Nicosia where H. C killed the lawyer.

    AVRUPA further says that during his recent testmony to the ``court'', Denktash had declared that he thinks that ``Polycarpos Yorgacis, the then Interior Minister of the Cyprus Republic ordered the lawyers´ killing''.

    AVRUPA concludes by saying that H.C. died in misery and his ``comrades in arms'' did not attend his funeral.
