What an absolute disgrace this is! Unless your a TC or Turkish National of course. How can they ignore 3rd country nationals? Are they left to starve? Needs a major rethink or there will be a lot of people in dire straits over this! They quite happily accept taxes and sigorta payments, but when push comes to shove are hung out to dry. A shambolic decision!

May be the UK should suggest all Turks and TCs in UK will discriminated against in a similar fashion... that might concentrate their minds on pulling back from what everyone can and should see as institutional racism.... pogroms will be next?

Limiting assistance packages to only nationals and TR nationals and not all those who are legally employed and have been paying social insurance payments to date is disgraceful if this is how it ends up being implemented. I have never been an advocate of simplistic 'charity begins at home' arguments.

The degree to which it is disgraceful is considerably less imo than the reported statements made by Ersin Tatar in regards to African Students. Disgusting at an entirely greater degree imo.

Just an awful thing to say, I used to teach here and my African students were great, so very respectful and hard working.

If someone has paid their social insurance payments and contributed then the deserve to receive in times of need.
I'm a great believer in looking after your own but as a part of being fair.
This isn't fair

I have been told that as well as excluding non citizens it also excludes the casino and hotel sector! So if you work in that sector even if you are a citizen you get zilch. Quite unbelievable.

Unfortunately it just shows just how little money the state has . Literally they are robbing peter to pay paul but janet gets naff all

Just to put things in context the eu have granted 700 million euro in aid to south cyprus . IN comparison north cyprus has received just 5 million from the eu and 10 million euro from turkey .

I maybe reading and understanding this completely incorrectly

His comment on the students I thought it meant the Universities took a fee from students therefore they must be responsible for them.
Private companies - I assume the Company which is generally somewhere along the line owned by a national it will be for them to submit a claim and then look after their employees.
People here without permission working without a permit, as stated 'Financial assistance cannot be given to third-country nationals working in North Cyprus because it is not known who they are' therefore if one employs someone without a permit it will depend on the employer.
Seeing how people in a so called civilised country have let their staff go with a months notice I can understand why any aid they are receiving here will be looking after their own and the people from the country that supplied the aid.
As a foreign worker with a provident fund and signorta, I hope I would be ahead of a person without a permit .
