1 Million euro spent by Greek Cypriots in Casinos and Hotels in the occupied areas

JCC reports that for the first 4 months of 2011 one million euro were spent via credit card transactions in the occupied north. 105000 euro were spent in casinos and hotels while another 370000 euro were spent purchasing tickets for flights to Turkey from the illegal airport of Tymbou (aka Ecran). A total of 2173 credit card transactions were made using Cypriot credit cards in casinos totalling 430853 euro; obviously this is not the whole story since casinos also accept cash and cheques which are not included in JCC’s data. 628929 euro were spent by credit card for hotel accommodation. The numbers are expected to increase as the summer approaching.
