  • [01] Cypriots from the occupied Karpas ask for Third Vienna Agreement implementation

    Cypriots from the Karpass peninsula, in the north eastern side of Cyprus, call for the implementation of the Third Vienna Agreement.

    In a press conference on Thursday, all local bodies and associations representing Karpass residents pointed out that if the agreement is implemented the hope of Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots living together again in a state where the rule of law and European law prevails will be once again revived.

    They also stressed that the agreement could be used as a practical confidence building measure and reconciliation before a solution can be found. Speaking at the event head of the Free United Karpas Petros Assiotis said that if the agreement is implemented the true intentions of Turkey will be apparent as to whether once a solution is agreed it will implement it.

    [02] Research: Cyprus is a "trap" for recognised refugees

    Cyprus is a "trap" for recognised refugees, who say their rights are not guaranteed and they are not allowed to seek refuge anywhere else, since they have been granted refugee status in Cyprus, according to the findings of a report commissioned by the UN Refugee Agency (UNCHR) and conducted by the independent NGO "INDEX: Research and Dialogue".

    Today there are 3,631 persons in Cyprus with the status of recognised refugee, subsidiary protection and humanitarian status, and the research on "The needs of refugees and the integration process in Cyprus" indicated that the trends concerning their unemployment and marginalisation are worsening in pace with the financial crisis. These people are one of the most vulnerable groups in Cyprus and, as the researchers pointed out, many of the problems the recognised refugees face are also faced by vulnerable groups of Cypriots.

    According to the findings, which was based on the administration of a questionnaire to 192 individuals within the target population, semi-structured, in depth interviews with 40 separate individuals, and findings from a series of focus groups, the recognised refugees are marginalised from mainstream society and live in increasingly vulnerable and precarious circumstances.
