Turkish Cypriot Leadership ‘Ministers’ with Republic of Cyprus Passports

The so called Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Turkish Cypriot regime, Hussein Ozgkiourgkioun, has recently stated that 100000 Turkish Cypriots, are Republic of Cyprus passport holders and explained that these are mainly young people. According to a news article published yesterday in the Turkish Cypriot newspaper Yeni Duzen it turns out that Ozgkiourgkioun has a RoC passport himself. The newspaper went as far as including official documents of Republic of Cyprus showing that several Turkish Cypriot leadership ‘Ministers’ are holding passports of the Republic, a government they publicly do not recognise.

Its important to note that Republic of Cyprus passport holders are enjoying full European citizen benefits plus extra benefits in the areas under control of Republic of Cyprus such as medical care.
