  • [01] SPOKESMAN - TURKEY - ECHR DECISION

  • [01] SPOKESMAN - TURKEY - ECHR DECISION

    The government has stressed that the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) should have been more careful and should have taken into account, in a ruling it issued on Friday relating to Turkish occupied Greek Cypriot properties, the fact there is a negotiations process going on, with a view to solve the Cyprus problem, divided since the Turkish invasion in 1974.

    Asked to give the government position on the view that there has been political intervention with the Court, Stephanou said that bearing in mind that we are involved in a negotiating process, with all due respect to the ECHR, the Court should have been more careful and should have taken into account that fact.

    The European Court (ECHR), in Strasbourg, said that the Immovable Property Commission set up in the Turkish occupied areas of Cyprus is an effective domestic remedy as far as property claims are concerned, and urged Greek Cypriots to address their claims to the IPC. It also said that Greek Cypriots must first exhaust all domestic remedies before resorting to the ECHR, including applying to the so-called high administrative court in the occupied areas of Cyprus, if the IPC remedy is not to their satisfaction.

    President Christofias is engaged in talks with the leader of the Turkish Cypriot community Mehmet Ali Talat since 2008 with a view to find a political settlement of the Cyprus problem.
