    [01] Council of Europe - Turkey - Cyprus - Resolution

    by Maria Myles

    Nicosia, Oct 6 (CNA) -- The Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe has strongly urged Turkey in a resolution to comply with a European Court of Human Rights decision calling on Ankara to pay compensation to a Greek Cypriot for continuous violation of her human rights in Cyprus.

    Today's development was welcomed by many quarters, including legal circles, who described it as an additional pressure lever on Turkey to meet its obligations to the CoE and who pointed out that it would be rather difficult for Turkey to push for candidacy status in the European Union at a time when it refuses to abide by European norms and regulations.

    The Committee, which met today in Strasbourg, adopted by 36 votes in favour, one against and one abstention an interim resolution which "strongly urges Turkey to review its position and to pay the just satisfaction awarded in this case in accordance with the conditions set out by the European Court of Human Rights so as to ensure that Turkey, as a high contracting party, meets its obligation under the Convention (European Convention on Human Rights)."

    Titina Loizidou, the Greek Cypriot who won her case against Turkey before the Court, told CNA that "today's decision reaffirms that the system (for protecting human rights) should work and that this same system, which issued the judgement, must implement its own decisions."

    [04] Labour Minister - European Institute of Social Security

    Limassol, Oct 6 (CNA) -- Cyprus Labour and Social Insurance Minister Andreas Moushouttas opened here today a four-day seminar of the European Institute of Social Security with the participation of 100 representatives from 20 European countries.

    Addressing participants, the Cypriot Minister said the foundations of modern social security were laid down in the 19th century with the industrial development in Europe, a consequence of which was the establishment of the working class and the need for the introduction of various measures for its protection.

    [05] Attorney General - Council of Europe - Turkey

    Nicosia, Oct 6 (CNA) -- Cyprus' Attorney General Alecos Markides expressed hope here today that Turkey will comply with a decision of the European Court of Human Rights to respect the human rights of Greek Cypriot Titina Loizidou after an urgent call from the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe to abide by the judgement.

    He also said the concerted effort, by the government and the lawyers involved in the Loizidou case will continue to work for the execution of the Court ruling.

    [08] Cyprus - Intertanko Executive Committee

    Limassol, Oct 6 (CNA) -- Cyprus Communications and Works Minister Averof Neofytou said here tonight that Cyprus is a "maritime centre" and the registry is only one part of the maritime infrastructure.

    [09] European Parliament - Cyprus - Turkey

    Brussels, Oct 6 (CNA) -- The European Parliament has called on Turkey to contribute actively to the search for a settlement in Cyprus on the basis of UN resolutions without jeopardising European Union - Cyprus accession negotiations.

    The EU, admitting that Turkey does not fulfill all the political criteria for accession, maintains that it should afford the country candidate status in its December summit.
