    Turkey urged by PACE to respect human rights in Cyprus

    by Maria Koniotou

    Strasbourg, Jun 24 (CNA) -- The plenary of the Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly has adopted with an overwhelming majority a resolution on the rights and fundamental freedoms of Greek Cypriots and Maronites living in the northern Turkish-occupied part of Cyprus and a recommendation on the colonisation by Turkish settlers.

    In its resolution the Assembly insists that the Turkish Cypriot administration controlling the northern part of Cyprus as well as Turkey, which assumes de facto legal co-responsibility in this part of the island, cease all humiliation of the Greek and Maronite communities and put an end to the climate of intimidation.

    [02] President announces additional measures for T/C (Correction)

    0950:CYPPRESS:02

    (CORRECTION)

    In CNA story filed yesterday under the title "President Papadopoulos announces additional measures for T/C", please correct title in third paragraph of Izet Izcan. He is the leader of the Turkish Cypriot "United Cyprus Party" and not leader of the Turkish Cypriot "Patriotic Unity Movement".

    Corrected story follows:

    President Papadopoulos announces additional measures for T/C

    Nicosia, Jun 24 (CNA) Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos has announced three measures aimed at making the movement of Turkish Cypriots to the southern government controlled areas of the Republic easier.

    These concern the abolition of a 15 pound fine by both Turkish Cypriots and Greek Cypriots for late registering of births, allowing lorries carrying goods to cross from the occupied areas to the free areas and extending the duration of car insurance for Turkish Cypriots entering the southern government controlled part of the island.
