  • [01] CHURCH ECHR TURKEY

    The Church of Cyprus will resort to the European Court of Human Rights to report Turkey for violation of its rights and usurpation of its property in the Turkish occupied areas.

    Speaking at a press conference, Archbishop Chrysostomos II said the case against Turkey to the ECHR has been prepared and the date coincides with the anniversary of the fall of Constantinople in 1453 when the Byzantine Empire came to an end.

    The Archbishop noted that now is the time for the Church of Cyprus to turn to the ECHR to report, in the most official manner, Turkey for its violation of our rights as Church, for the usurpation of our property in the occupied areas, for the fact that we are not allowed to visit our holy sites for worship which is an undeniable right and for depriving us the right to maintain our churches which are in a bad state and ready to collapse.

    [02] GSSE OPENING CEREMONY

    The Opening Ceremony of the XIII Games of the Small States of Europe (GSSE) takes place Monday evening in the presence of the President of the Republic of Cyprus, Demetris Christofias, and other state leaders.
