FOUR TURKISH CYPRIOTS APPEALS TO THE EUROPEAN COURT OF HUMAN RIGHTS FOR THEIR PROPERTY IN SOUTH CYPRUS...

Four Turkish Cypriots belonging to the same family appealed to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) demanding the restitution of 15 hectares of land and a block of 15 offices they left behind in South Cyprus as well as the compensation of their moral and material damages.

Lawyer Asli Aksu the representative of Turkish Cypriots Hasan Hüseyin Çakartas, Nejla Çagis, Mümin Çakartas and Gökçen Bayer, appealed to the ECHR demanding the restitution of her clients’ property in Limassol.

Speaking to Anatolian News Agency (AA), Lawyer Asli Aksu stated that the appeal to the ECHR should be accepted in terms of the restitution of the Turkish Cypriots’ credit and added that if the case was opened, the ECHR’s objective on this issue would be tested.

Aslı Aksu pointing out that if the Court accepted the appeal, they would open a case demanding 7 million euros for moral and material damages and the restitution of the property in Limassol, said the appeal to the ECHR came after the insufficient domestic remedy for property cases in the Greek Cypriot side.

Saying that: "it is time to seek the rights of the Turkish Cypriots and this legal struggle is the struggle to seek their rights", Lawyer Aksu stated that one of his clients Hasan Hüseyin Çakartas was a British citizen and if the ECHR accepted the case Britain could be involved in the case with the excuse that the rights of its citizen had been violated.
