CoE Committee of Ministers Decides to Continue Loizidou Case Review

CoE Committee of Ministers Decides to Continue Loizidou Case Review

The Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe decided on Wednesday, during its meeting in Strasbourg, to continue the review of “Loizidou v. Turkey” case, despite the fact that Turkey has been seeking the closure of the supervision of the case as a prerequisite for its future cooperation with the human rights organization.

The Cyprus News Agency reports that the Committee of Ministers decided that the case will be re-examined during its meeting in June 2019, with a view to look into the possibility of its closure.
 
 Titina Loizidou, a Greek Cypriot applicant seeks to enforce a 1996 European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) judgment for the restitution and peaceful enjoyment of her property in Turkish-occupied Kyrenia, in the northern coast of Cyprus. Turkey says it is not possible to restore the property and that Loizidou can only exchange it or receive compensation for it, pointing to the immovable property commission (IPC) operating in the Turkish-occupied part of Cyprus.
 
Moreover, the Committee, which took its decision in the context of monitoring the execution of the ECHR judgments on “Xenides-Arestis v. Turkey”, expressed on Wednesday - as it did with the judgements on “Varnava and Others v. Turkey” (concerning missing persons) and “Cyprus v. Turkey” - its deep regret over Turkey’s decision to abstain from relevant discussions and called on Ankara to cooperate.

The Committee of Ministers insisted once again on Turkey’s unconditional obligation to pay the compensation awarded by the Court regarding the 33 cases of “Xenides-Arestis” group, the Varnava case as well as the interstate case of Cyprus against Turkey.
