A group of Turkish Cypriots living and working in London celebrated the illegal declaration of the pseudo state raising the flag of the occupation outside the Municipality building of Waltham Forest.
Turkish and Turkish Cypriot media projected the fact as the first official hoisting of the flag of the Turkish republic of northern Cyprus (TRNC) at a government building in the UK.
They also pointed out that the 38th anniversary of the “founding” of TRNC is also celebrated in other countries. Approximately 50 people participated in the provocative event.
The National Federation of Cypriots contacted the local council.
They received an apology from the Leader of Waltham Forest Council, Grace Williams, on the flag-raising of the unrecognised secessionist regime in occupied northern Cyprus outside Waltham Forest Town Hall yesterday morning.
