    PACE recommends measures against Turkey

    By Nikos Markides

    Strasbourg, Sep 24 (CNA) -- The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) has called on the Committee of Ministers to consider seizure of Turkey's contribution to the Council and imposing a daily fine on Ankara, if the Turkish government continues to refuse to comply with a European Court of Human Rights decision, with regard to a human rights case a Greek Cypriot brought before the Court against Turkey.

    Expressing ''grave concern'' about Turkey's continued refusal to respect the judgments of the Court, and in particular in the case of Titina Loizidou, the Assembly asked Ankara to pay without delay and warned that if there is no compliance with the Court decision, it will consider the repercussions of this refusal at its April session, next year.

    The Assembly has also urged Turkey to adopt concrete measures with regard to the Court judgment in the interstate application of Cyprus against Turkey and to stop ongoing human rights violations of Greek Cypriots in the areas it occupies since its troops invaded the island in 1974.

    Following last night's long discussion, the Assembly adopted a resolution and a recommendation in which it reiterates its calls on the Turkish authorities to ensure rapidly that ''concrete measures are adopted in the case of Cyprus v Turkey, notably to deal with the problems of missing persons in a manner respecting the Convention (European Convention on Human Rights) and to stop the ongoing violations of the rights of the Greek Cypriots in northern Cyprus''.
