    [01] Foreign Minister says CoE Committee of Ministers gives Turkey one week notice to pay compensation to Titina Loizidou

    The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Georgios Iacovou, announced yesterday that the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe (CoE) had given Turkey a week's notice to compensate Greek Cypriot Titina Loizidou for loss of use of her property in the Turkish-occupied areas of Cyprus. In a written statement, Mr Iacovou noted the following: "The Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe at today's meeting adopted the Forth Interim Resolution in connection with the European Court of Human Rights' decision of 28 July 1998 in the case of Loizidou against Turkey. The resolution was supported by all member states of the Council of Europe, except Turkey. The resolution gives Turkey a week's notice to pay the compensation. At the same time the Committee expresses its determination to take all necessary measures against Turkey should the latter once again fail to pay the compensation. The Committee of Ministers expresses its strong disapproval of the fact that Turkey has not yet complied with its obligation, under Article 46 of the European Convention of Human Rights, to implement the above Decision of the European Court. At the same time, it reaffirms Turkey's obligation for unconditional compliance with the Court's Decisions and calls on her to re-evaluate its position and pay the compensation. The Committee of Ministers reached today's Decision following Turkey's refusal to pay the compensation and her insistence on unacceptable terms that offended the authority of the Court and of the Council of Europe. I express hope that Turkey, in the context of its European aspirations, will at long last comply with the Decisions of the European Court of Human Rights thus, respecting the principles and institutions of the European legal order. I express my thanks to the Government of Greece for its valuable help, to EU member states and the Council of Europe member states for their consistent and principled position. I also express satisfaction with the way the diplomatic service and Cyprus' Permanent Delegation to the Council of Europe have handled the issue."

    [02] CoE Committee of Ministers adopts interim resolution on Loizidou case

    The Council of Europe Committee of Ministers adopted yesterday, at the 860th meeting of the Ministers' Deputies, the following Interim Resolution (ResDH (2003)) concerning the judgment of the European Court of Human Rights of 28 July 1998 in the case of Loizidou against Turkey : "The Committee of Ministers, having regard to the judgment of the European Court of Human Rights ("the Court") of 28 July 1998 in the case of Loizidou against Turkey and transmitted the same date to the Committee for supervision of execution in accordance with Article 46 2 of the European Convention on Human Rights ("the Convention"); Recalling that, in that judgment, the Court held that Turkey was to pay to the applicant as just satisfaction specific sums for damages and for costs and expenses; Recalling its three earlier Interim Resolutions and the fact that on 19 June 2003, before the Committee of Ministers, the Turkish authorities declared unambiguously that they had initiated the measures necessary to enable the Committee to take note of payment of the just satisfaction award and approve a draft final resolution at the DH meeting on 7 and 8 October 2003; Recalling that it was clear that this payment had to intervene before the examination of the draft final resolution; Very deeply deploring the fact that Turkey did not honour its undertaking and has thus still not complied with its obligation under Article 46 of the Convention to abide by this judgment, Stressing anew that the obligation to comply with the Court's judgments is unconditional; Strongly urges Turkey to reconsider its position and to pay without any conditions whatsoever the just satisfaction awarded to the applicant by the Court, within one week, i.e. 19 November 2003 at the latest; Declares the Committee's resolve to take all adequate measures against Turkey if Turkey fails once more to pay the just satisfaction awarded by the Court to the applicant."
