Turkey fails to execute ECHR ruling over Loizidou

Postby andreas18 » Wed Oct 08, 2003 12:26 pm

Nicosia, Oct 7 (CNA) Turkey has set a number of conditions in order to implement the decision of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) to pay damages worth nearly one million dollars to Greek Cypriot Titina Loizidou for human rights violations in Cyprus with regard to property rights, during a marathon session on Tuesday at the Council of Europe.

As a result, European Union member states intervened and postponed the session for next Wednesday, demanding that a warning be sent to Turkey to comply with the ECHR decision, while the government of Cyprus, together with Greece, submitted a resolution condemning Turkeys behaviour, Government Spokesman Kypros Chrysostomides told CNA.

Reports said that during the Committee of Ministers' meeting, Turkey appeared ready to pay the damages, demanding however that the committee should not re-examine the implementation of the decision concerning the unimpeded access and peaceful enjoyment of Loizidous property until after 2005.
