19 Greek Cypriots to be compensated for their properties
Turkish Cypriot Immovable Property Compensation Commission concluded 22 out of 162 applications made by the Greek Cypriots for their property left in the North in 1974.
According to the information given from the Commission, 100 out of 162 applications were made last year and 62 of them in the first 4 months of 2007.
It was stated that the Commission decided to restitute the properties to 3 Greek Cypriots whose properties were in Tatlisu and Ziyamet and compensate the other 19 Greek Cypriots who applied to the Commission. It was also pointed out that all the files were concluded by agreement between the sides before going to the Court. All the necessary procedure for the restitution of the properties is being carried out by the TRNC Ministry of Interior.
European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) in its verdict in December 2005 on Arestis case had accepted the Immovable Property Commission as an internal law procedure to deal with the Greek Cypriot properties left in the North. There are around 1400 Greek Cypriot applications in the ECHR on this issue.
The Commission has 6 members together with its two foreign members named Hans Christian Kruger and Daniel Tarschys.
