Page 5 of Cyprus Today, says it all doesn't it?



I wondered at the time it was offered and accepted whether they would ever pay this bill



The bill is for 63.8m Euros



Let us hope that this hits the international press



Shame on the Greek Cypriot government!

I can't see where they actually say they will not pay for the electric they have had from TRNC. The view is from an opposition member of Democratic Party, I read it just as it being questionable of the legality of taking power from the occupied areas(his words) Nicalos Papadoupalos.

Perhaps the plug should be pulled for a week or so to give them time to reflect.



If Mr Papadoupalos has any issues, they sould be investigated, and if neccesary they could be prosecuted by the EU for receiving illegal goods or services.

Good point message 4. They can't expect to have it both ways.

blade msg 3 says "I have been told that in the south ,since having electric from the north, peoples bills have nearly doubled! "



You may well have been told this but it is none the less pure nonsense., as far as the blame is being laid at 'TC electricity'. The cost of electricity in the south has risen because of



1 - Generic VAT increases

2 - Specific surcharge on all bills to meet the cost of rebuilding the power station the RoC blew up by unsafely storing siezed explosives in metal containers left out in the sun for years.

3 - Surcharge on all bills to promote renewable energy so the RoC can meet its EU obligations re generation from renewable sources.



These increases may have come 'since' TRNC started selling electricity to the RoC but are nothing to do with the TRNC selling electricity to the RoC as you post suggests.

THE electricity authority (EAC) will pay some 116 million this year to third parties in a bid to have sufficient power, as its main power plant crippled in a munitions blast last year is not expected to be restored until mid 2013, it emerged yesterday.

EAC chairman Haris Thrasou told lawmakers of the House Finance Committee that the Vassilikos power station is being restored gradually and is expected to be up and running in May next year.

Destruction of the plant in July 2011, forced the EAC to lease generators and buy electricity from Turkish Cypriots a move that has been and continues to be criticised.

The EAC has budgeted around 63.8 million for the power provided by the Turkish Cypriots through the Green Line Regulation.

A further 52.2 million will be paid to lease generators.

But DIKO vice chairman Nicolas Papadopoulos said his party was not convinced of the legality of the move.

Why should they pay the bill ?

They know that some businesses in the TRNC never get around to clearing their electricity debts in full without being disconnected, so why should they.

The next issue of course will be if\when the plug is pulled, then the GCs will have make good P.R of the unjust situation inflicted upon them by an illegal state.

It either makes you laugh or cry.

Erolz,

Their bills have nearly doubled, there is no doubt about that. I can't see that i suggested that it was the fault of any one person/ country ect? I stated a fact nothing more.



What amazes me is that the TRNC can't manage to keep this side in electricity in a normal manner, so how can they manage to sell it to the south? At the expense of their own people!

So Blade if I say since the RoC joined the EU there has been a global economic melt down and Greece going into sovreign default , you would not think I was suggesting in any way there was a link between the 'since event' and the later ?

To be honest I find your reply disingenous in the extreme. To me you clearly tried to create a link in your msg 3 between the South buying electricity from the North and consumer prices 'nearly doubling' and now I have pointed out there is in fact no connection between those thow things , you say I was never saying there was a connection between them.

But they dont switch-off the big TRNC customers when they dont pay the bill, they just continue to provide electricity.

Once again the South seems to have had one over on the North.

And as daypat quite correctly points out.......they should pay their bill.

Please avoid tempting providence by using the word "connected" when referring to the provision of electricity by Kibtec. I keep checking my fuses !
