Beyond Contempt is a new YouTube channel and website giving insight and analysis of Cypriot justice. I will be highlighting the mistreatment of foreigners in the Republic of Cyprus and expose the abuse by the judiciary towards anyone, not of Greek Cypriot origin.
I’ll cover my 13-year court battle against a property developer (Christoforos Karayiannas & Son Ltd) and give tips for attending court. I’ll be covering the stories of other victims too and there will be regular videos and live streams commenting on issues affecting expats, tourists and the property market.
Join me on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Periscope where together we’ll discuss corruption and how it affects us and unveil crooks within the property industry and beyond.
