    RSF demands immediate release of T/C journalists

    by Kyriacos Tsioupras

    London, Aug 13 (CNA) -- The international organisation "Reporters Sans Frontiers" (RSF) has demanded the immediate release of the editor-in-chief of Turkish Cypriot daily "Afrika", formerly "Avrupa", Sener Levent and journalist Memduh Ener, who were found "guilty" of "libel" against Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash, the Turkish occupation army and "motherland" Turkey, and given a six-month "jail sentence" each.

    RSF's General Secretary Robert Menard says in a letter to Denktash that their incarceration is "worthy of the worst regimes".

    Parties condemn second Turkish offensive

    Nicosia, Aug 13 (CNA) -- Cypriot political parties reiterated today the need to unite in the face of increasing Turkish intransigence and unacceptable demands, as they issued statements on the occasion of the launch of the second Turkish offensive against Cyprus in the summer of 1974, which resulted in the occupation of 37 per cent of the island.

    All parties stressed their determination to contribute towards a peaceful settlement, through dialogue, on the basis of UN resolutions and in line with the European Union rules and regulations which Cyprus aspires to join.
