Abstract

The article starts with a letter from a reader, Mehmet Ali Şahin. He complains about the Paphos municipality by claiming that the citizens could not get response to their appeals for days and even months. He says that only two Turks are working in the municipality, and one of the two is assigned to hoist the Greek flag during Sundays, Greek national and religious holidays. Sahin finds this insulting to the Turkish people, and asks for a solution. Yavuz comments on the issue by claiming that Greek Cypriots enjoy playing with the national feelings of Turks.
