Bar-fa in the news!

This is the same story running Dee, yes I saw the news at 6.30 last night, was very sad to hear the folks speaking who have lost out on their dream and speaking of life changing implications for them to make good their loss, sadly as before to repay many will lose their homes here or place them in severe financial difficulties.
Many are at the bewilderment stage and struggle to see a pathway forward or a sign how to proceed, sadly that strike a chord with me and it is sad to watch.
One gentleman was saying how expensive it is to pursue in the Turkish Courts.

I had a response today from Jim Nicholsons office that Mr. Nicholson has not given up on the prospect of addressing many situations from Northern Irelands residents.
Anyone please involved get in touch and record your story with him.
It is always one more step in the right direction.

Jim has been in contact with his Ulster Unionist colleagues at the Northern Ireland Assembly in relation to your experiences within the European Union and Turkey . As such, Danny Kennedy MLA and Tom Elliott MLA have tabled the below Motion for debate in the Assembly. It is hoped that this debate will happen as soon as possible after the summer recess.
Property Fraud in Europe
That this Assembly notes with concern the number of people from Northern Ireland who have been victims of property fraud in the European Union and Turkey; calls on the First Minister and deputy First Minister, working with Northern Ireland's MEPs, to make representations to the European Commission to take more definitive action to protect property buyers, to raise awareness of the problems associated with property fraud and to urge the countries concerned to better regulate property companies working within their jurisdictions.
Jim is doing everything that he can both within the European Parliament and in Northern Ireland to lobby the European Union, specifically the Commission, to take action against this unscrupulous behaviour.
He remains committed to putting pressure on the European Commission to propose an EU property rights directive. He hopes that the debate in the Northern Ireland Assembly will rally more support around this issue and that the MLAs and Ministers in the Assembly will act with him to call for such a directive and to provide a strong voice for you and others affected.
I will be in touch with more details and the proposed date as soon as it is finalized. In the meantime, please do contact me if there is anything further Jim can do or if you have made any progress.
Many thanks,
Rebecca
