  • [01] BRITISH COURSE - ILLEGAL FLIGHTS

    The Administrative Court of the High Court of Justice, Queens Bench Division, of the United Kingdom dismissed Tuesday an application for judicial review brought by Kibris Turk Hava Yollari (a company registered in Turkey) and CTA Holidays (a company registered in the UK) against the decision of the Secretary of State for Transport to refuse their applications for the granting of permits to conduct direct flights, scheduled and non scheduled/chartered, between the UK and the airport operating illegally in the occupied area of the Republic under the name of Ercan.

    A press release issued by the Law Office of the Republic of Cyprus said ``undoubtedly this is a very important judgment for the Republic of Cyprus, particularly in reinforcing its sovereignty and the rights enjoyed under International Law with regard to the conduct of international flights from/to its territory.``

    ``The Court unequivocally held that the Republic of Cyprus enjoys exclusive sovereignty over its entire territory and the territorial waters adjacent thereto, irrespective of whether it exercises effective control over the whole of such territory. The exclusive sovereignty extends, under the Convention, to the airspace over its entire territory and territorial waters,`` the Law Office said.
