    [03] UN - Human Rights - Cyprus

    Nicosia, Aug 16 (CNA) -- Greece's Representative to the UN Human Rights Commission Dr Erica-Irene A. Daes, has said that a just solution to the Cyprus problem, based on the relevant UN resolutions would restore the territorial integrity of the Republic of Cyprus, the respect of the human rights and fundamental freedoms of all Cypriots.

    Speaking recently before the Sub-Commission on the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights, in Geneva, Daes referred to the mass violations of human rights in Cyprus by Turkey underlining the importance of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) ruling, on 10 May, 2001, in the Fourth Interstate Application of Cyprus against Turkey, by which Ankara was found guilty of continuous gross human rights violations in Cyprus, as a result of the occupation of the island's northern part, since Turkey invaded it in 1974.
