On the 12th of February 2020, the action number 187 of 2019 of Thomaides family against Fikri Ataoglu and his family was fixed for proof, in the absence of any appearance by the defendants. On the previous day, 11th of February, our learned colleague Ulas Nazim informed us that he will file an appearance, for this reason, the case is postponed to 18th of February in order to give him time to make all the steps which he considers necessary to appear in this case. It is the first time that a Turkish Cypriot is appearing at this kind of proceedings, recognizing in that way the jurisdiction of Cyprus courts. The significance of this appearance became more meaningful because of the fact that Mr. Ataoglu is a politically exposed person as a member of Democratic Party. In our view, this event is remarkable as the case will be decided upon its own merits as a legal case and not under political circumstances. Our intention is to keep the case as it stands.
