Prohibition For Yachts To Enter Southern Cyprus After North Remains In Force

I would just like to remind all sailors who have visited Kyrenia or Famagusta in the north of Cyprus that they are prohibited from entry to southern Cyprus and are liable to fines of up to 10,000 Cyprus pounds, together or separately with a possible year in jail. An Israeli Skipper was just recently sentenced to 25 days in jail, and was expelled after 11 days. Also a Syrian commercial Skipper also got 4 months in jail. The law applies from 1974 after the Turkish invasion of the north.
