    The EU's top court has backed the right of a Greek Cypriot to reclaim land in Turkish-controlled northern Cyprus that has since been sold to a UK couple.

    TBH, the British couple were idiots for buying property in a disputed territory that is not recognised as a country by any country except Turkey.

    They were looking for a cheap bit of land. The land was in an area that's pretty well known for being disputed territory so they should have left well alone.

    I'm overjoyed by this ruling but it actually means very little. Compensation can only be claimed if the people occupying the land aren't turkish/turkish cypriot. It's a start. Maybe one day my family will get our land back.
