A BRITISH couple successfully sued by a Greek Cypriot refugee for using his property in the Turkish-occupied north have lost an appeal against Cyprus at the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), it emerged yesterday.

Linda and David Orams had filed an appeal against a Nicosia court decision issued some six years ago saying that the couple should demolish the house they built on land in Lapithos belonging to Greek Cypriot refugee Meletis Apostolides.

The Orams disputed the courtís jurisdiction, the fairness of the trial and the impartiality of the court.

The Nicosia ruling was ignored by the Orams, who told the court they would only respond to a ruling from a Turkish Cypriot court in the north.

In an effort to get the ruling enforced, Apostolidesí lawyers took the case to the UK.
