Below is cut and pasted the relevant part of the ECHR press release :

Solomou v. Turkey (no. 36832/97)

The applicants are 12 Cypriot nationals.

The first five applicants, Maria, Isaak, Anastasia, Kyriaki and Andriani Isaak, were born in 1977, 1944, 1951, 1974 and 1979 respectively and live in Ayia Napia and Paralimni (Cyprus). They are the widow, parents and sisters of Anastasios (Tassos) Isaak, a Greek Cypriot, who died on 11 August 1996.

The seven other applicants, Spyros, Antonis, Panayiotis, Maria, Costas, Niki and Paraskevi Solomou, were born in 1941, 1964, 1966, 1972, 1975, 1974 and 1971 respectively and also live in Paralimini (Cyprus). They are the father, brothers and sisters of Solomos Solomou, a Greek Cypriot who died on 14 August 1996.

On 11 August 1996 Anastasios Isaak participated in a motorcycle rally to protest against the Turkish occupation of the northern part of Cyprus which took place at several points along the United Nations buffer zone east of Nicosia. His family allege that, during that rally, he was kicked and beaten to death by Turkish-Cypriot policemen and counter-demonstrators.

On 14 August 1996 Solomos Solomou, having attended Anastasios Isaak’s funeral, entered the buffer zone near the spot of the killing and, in protest, climbed up a flagpole flying the Turkish flag. His family allege that the Turkish armed forces then opened fire at him and he was shot and killed.

Relying on Articles 2 (right to life), 8 (right to respect for private and family life) and 14 (prohibition of discrimination), all the applicants allege that their relatives were unlawfully killed by agents of the Turkish Government and that the Turkish authorities failed to carry out an investigation into the incidents. In the case of Solomou the applicants also rely on Articles 1 (obligation to respect human rights) and 3 (prohibition of inhuman or degrading treatment).


The last paragraph is the most important to take note. This ECHR case is not about what happened in the original incident - eg should Solomou have been detained, should he have been restrained without being shot, was the action proportionate, etc. In other words the ECHR is not re-trying the case. This case is whether (a) he was unlawfully killed and (b) did the Turkish authorities - as occupying and therefore responsible power - fail to investigate the deaths.
