    [01] A single ballot paper of Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot MEP candidates for Euro-elections, says Interior Minister

    The Minister of Interior, Mr Andreas Christou, has stated that Turkish Cypriots would be able to exercise their electoral rights in the June 2004 European Parliament elections but not separately as a community since the acquis communautaire was not applied in the Turkish-occupied areas due to the ongoing division and occupation. Instead, as the Permanent Secretary of the Interior Ministry Mr Kyriakos Triantafyllides explained in his intervention on the matter, a single ballot paper would be used for the elections with no distinction made between Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot MEP candidates. "Provided that the publicised decisions of the Subcommittee, set up by the National Council to examine the matter, are confirmed, Cyprus will be a single region for the purpose of the Euro- elections and there will be one ballot paper", Mr Triantafyllides said. He further said that there would be two kinds of electoral registers, one for Cypriots - Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots - and one for citizens of other EU member states who were living in Cyprus. Mr Triantafyllides expressed certainty that the Election Service of the Interior Ministry would be ready to take all the necessary measures to prepare for the elections as soon as the political decisions on the matter were finalised.

    [02] Attorney General holds talks in Germany on recovery of stolen Cypriot antiquities

    The Attorney General of the Republic, Mr Solon Nikitas, paid a two-day visit to Munich, Germany, on 8 September, for talks with German officials on the recovery of the stolen Cypriot antiquities which had been found by the Bavarian police at the flat of the Turkish illicit dealer in antiquities Aydin Dickmen. During his stay, the Attorney General visited the place where the antiquities were kept and was assured that all measures were taken for their protection and preservation. Mr Nikitas had a meeting with the Attorney General of Bavaria, to whom he underlined how significant it was for the Cyprus Government and the Church to see the stolen antiquities returned to Cyprus. He also met with the lawyers representing the Cyprus Republic and the Church in Munich and discussed with them details of the case, including the specific procedures to be followed for the recovery of the antiquities.

    [03] Interior Minister to attend ministerial meeting on regional planning in Slovenia

    The Interior Minister, Mr Andreas Christou, departs today for Slovenia, to attend the 13th European Conference of Ministers responsible for Regional Planning (CEMAT), of the Council of Europe, to be held on 16-17 September in Ljubljana. During the Conference, special emphasis will be given on the promotion of sustainable spatial development, and the European Ministers are expected to adopt a declaration pledging their government's commitment to integrate the principles of sustainable development in their national policies and ensure that these are applied on a European-wide basis.
