Problems about the minority foundations (waqfs), land and acquistion off immovable properties02 September 2018

Since the coup between 1967-74, it became impossible to elect the board for the administration of the waqfs with the violation of the rights. Even if there was put in effect a new legislation in 2008 the minority still does not have the full power in the administration. According to the statistics, while earlier in the 1920s the minority-owned 84% of the land, now they own only 25% of it. But, there is a hidden truth in the background. This statistic also shows that the Greek origin citizens are encouraged on purchasing immovable properties. It is also denied that they are Ottoman possessions and it is claimed that they are lands of Greeks who came from the Soviet Union
