  • [01] CYPRUS - ECHR RULING

    The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) final ruling in the property case of Greek Cypriot refugee Myra Xenides Aresti vs Turkey has many positive aspects, since it reaffirms the applicants right to property, Government Spokesman Vasilis Palmas said on Friday.

    The ECHR called on Ankara to pay compensation amounting to 885,000 euro by August 22 this year to Greek Cypriot Xenides Aresti for the loss of her property in the fenced off area of the since 1974 Turkish occupied town of Famagusta.

    The Courts ruling affirms the right to property and has positive aspects. The most important one is that it reaffirms the violation of the applicant`s property right. Moreover, the Court ruled important compensation for loss of use of property and for moral damages, which are important aspects, he added.

    But the Spokesman noted the fact that the ECHR will examine again the legality or not of the self styled property commission set up by Ankara in the Turkish occupied areas of Cyprus, in future cases against Turkey, filed by Greek Cypriot refugees.

    The issue concerning the so called commission is the only one that needs careful handling. All other aspects of the Courts rulings are satisfactory, he said.

    [02] PALMAS - REHN

    The Cypriot government said Friday that statements attributed to EU Commissioner for Enlargement Olli Rehn regarding a Commission intention to grant scholarships to Turkish Cypriot students and academics of the illegal Turkish Cypriot regime is wrong.

    Noting that these statements were attributed to Rehn by the Turkish news agency Anadolu, Government Spokesman Vasilis Palmas said that if indeed the EU Commissioner made such statements, then they are at least wrong.

    [03] CYPRUS - EU - UNEMPLOYMENT

    The unemployment rate in Cyprus in April 2007 was 4.4%, which was the fourth best rate recorded in the EU, according to figures released by Eurostat.

    In the Eurozone, average unemployment stood at 7.1%. The lowest rate was in the Netherlands with 3.3% and the highest in Poland with 11.2%.

    In Cyprus, the unemployment rate for men in April 2007 was 3.7%, women 5.3% and persons under 25 years of age 9.1%.

    [04] BAGHDATIS - ROLAND GAROS

    Cypriot tennis player Marcos Baghdatis, 19th in world Men Tennis rankings will face on Saturday Czech Republic`s Jan Hajek, who ranks 100th in the men`s tennis classification, for the Roland Garos men singles third round.

    Baghdatis, who made it to the Australian Open final and the semi-final of Wimbledon, said that playing in Paris it feels like playing at home.
