Well that's no way to impress the European Union.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

I read the newspaper report and was confused, not knowing what was meant by "the fenced-off city of Varosha." After further research, it seems that the Turkish authorities have not allowed anyone to go this fenced-off city--nobody. It does not surprise me that folks were arrested, and I do not think that this was unexpected on the part of the MEPs and the others.
