I suppose Oracle hasn’t given the link to her quotes because it comes from the Draft Treaty of Establishment, not the signed one.

Even so, it’s amazing what you can do with selective quotations. For example, from the bunch of quotations above:
“b) in any other case, a periodic sum equal to the rent which might reasonably be expected to be payable by a tenant in occupation of such immovable property under a lease whereby such tenant undertook to bear the cost of the repairs and insurance and other expenses, if any, necessary to maintain the immovable property concerned in a state to command that rent.”

The paragraph comes from section 10 which is actually headed:
“ Where, pursuant to the provisions of paragraph 1 of Section 3 of this Part of this Annex, the Government of the Republic of Cyprus arranges for the Government of the United Kingdom to occupy or use, in accordance with those provisions, any immovable property which was, immediately before the entry into force of this Treaty, in private ownership, either by an agreement between the Government of the Republic of Cyprus and the owner or occupier of such immovable property or by the exercise of compulsory powers, the following provisions shall apply:”

In other words, the British Government agreed to pay rent for private property that they used if the Cyprus Government arranged it. I don’t know exactly what was in the heads of the negotiators, but it is likely that it was intended to covered an interim period when property might be wanted to be rented by the British as part of their clearing out of parts of independent Cyprus into the SBAs

Bollocks! (In the Shakespearean sense) :D

I didn't give the link precisely because it was the signed one!

Beg pardon, you're right ..... but then so am I. The section you selectively quoted seems to be for any properties in the Republic of Cyprus that the British Government rented with the agreement of the Republic of Cyprus government. Nothing to do with the SBAs
