  • [01] C OF E URGES TURKEY TO COMPLY ON LOIZIDOU CASE

    Nicosia, 16 February 2001 (11:08 UTC+2)

    The Committee of the Permanent Representatives of the Council of Europe (CofE) has drafted a third interim resolution against Ankara for its failure to comply with the decision of the European Court of Human Rights in the Loizidou vs. Turkey case.

    The Court issued a decision calling for the financial restitution of Cypriot Titika Liozidou, who won a case against Turkey over the military occupation of her personal property in northern Cyprus. The Committee will reconvene on April 3 and 4 to re-examine the case.

    Ms. Loizidou challenged Turkey's continuing occupation of Cyprus' northern part since 1974 prohibiting her from peacefully enjoying and using her property there, which contravenes the European Convention on Human Rights.

    The Court ruled in December 1996 that Turkey, through the large presence of its troops effectively exercises overall control in occupied Cyprus, something which entails responsibility for the policies and actions of the Turkish Cypriot regime in those areas.

    The Court also said Loizidou is and must be regarded the legal owner of her property and ordered Ankara to pay over 900,000 dollars in compensation.
