Ms. Lawley said “The British High Commission is very pleased to recognise the splendid efforts of CPAG in supporting many British people and other nationalities, including Cypriots, with their property problems. With the growth of the British Community on the Island, the aim of the High Commission is to help people to help themselves. CPAG is a shining example of what can be achieved by a group of dedicated volunteers. We wish them every success in their endeavours.

Mr O’Hare in turn stated that CPAG were most grateful for the superb ongoing support they receive from the British High Commission, especially their public endorsement of CPAG which adds significant weight to the group’s credibility.

The presentation took place following an event hosted by Caroline Flint MP, UK Minister for Europe, on her recent visit to the island. During her visit Ms Flint also presented a donation of €50,000 to the ongoing mine clearance effort on the Green Line.

Editor’s Comment

Certain parties in the free areas of the Republic have hinted that the Cyprus Property Action Group is a covert organisation supported by the Turkish occupation forces. Whether they’ll now be foolish enough to suggest that the British High Commission is also being supported by the Turkish forces remains to be seen.
