Manchesters united in Champions League improvement

THE two Manchester clubs have applied everything they learnt in last month’s stunning derby to getting themselves on track for the Champions League knockout stage with City continuing to attack relentlessly and United tightening up at the back.

The 6-1 mauling by City at Old Trafford showed up United’s defensive frailties and Sir Alex Ferguson’s side have since strung together three successive wins with clean sheets, including Wednesday’s 2-0 European win over Otelul Galati.

The victory lifted them to the top of Group C and within touching distance of the last 16, while City’s 3-0 win at Villarreal in Group A put them one victory away from the next round as both clubs have recovered from indifferent starts.

Fears mount over dwindling Turkish Cypriot population


TURKISH Cypriot opposition parties continued efforts in the north’s ‘parliament’ yesterday to block proposed changes in the social security and immigration laws which they say will lead to further mass immigration from Turkey and emigration of indigenous Turkish Cypriots. 

Efforts to block the bill were yesterday being led by Communal Democracy Party (TDP) leader Mehmet Cakici who sought filibuster the proposed amendments by delivering a record-breaking 13-hour speech that began on Tuesday and ended early yesterday morning. 

Yesterday, Cakici’s place had been taken by other deputies who said they too would seek to filibuster the bill.

Talat denied entry to Australia


FORMER Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat has been denied entry into Australia because his Turkish diplomatic passport read “former president of the TRNC,” it was reported yesterday.

According to Turkish Cypriot news portal Kibris Postasi, the Australian embassy in Nicosia refused to grant a visa for him to travel to Sydney and Melbourne where he was scheduled to give lectures.

Kibris Postasi said Talat had travelled to many countries with the same passport when he was the leader of the Turkish Cypriots while Australia had granted him a visa in the past despite it saying “former TRNC president.”

The report said efforts were made by the Turkish foreign ministry to change the decision but to no avail.
