A invasão turca de Chipre ocorrida em 1976 e a ausência de consequências para a Turquia pelo sucedido é um escândalo que devia envergonhar todos os políticos ocidentais da época e os seus sucessores.
É de pasmar o desprezo por este caso ainda mais dada a atenção - leia-se, atitude persecutória - dedicada a Israel. Na verdade, invasão militar e ocupação de um território de um país soberano, limpeza étnica, homicídios em massa, estupros indiscriminados efectivamente perpetrados pelos turcos há apenas 35 anos não trouxeram aos turcos consequências.
• The secret report on Turkish atrocities in Cyprus
Freedom & Justice in Cyprus 25 September 2011
By Panos Ioannides
The secret report from Council of Europe on Turkish atrocities in Cyprus during the 1974 invasion has been recovered. This report documents the systematic and extensive human rights violations perpetrated by the Turkish army against the Greek Cypriot population, raping an murdering thousands in order to force a mass exodus and an ethnic cleansing of the northern third of Cyprus. Turkey has never been held responsible for these atrocities and, in spite of all principles of international law, is still permitted to keep the fruits of the 1974 aggression, specifically the so-called Turkish Republic of North Cyprus.
The report in full is available for download at Cyprus Action Network.
