  • [01] GOVERNMENT - ORAMS CASE

    The Cypriot government has described as positive the intention of Britain`s Court of Appeal to refer points of substance, in a property case involving a Greek Cypriot refugee and a British couple, to the Court of Justice of the European Communities, in Luxembourg.

    The British Court is hearing the appeal of Meletis Apostolides against Linda and David Orams, who have built a luxury villa in his property in the northern Turkish occupied part of Cyprus.

    Replying to questions, Government Spokesman Vassilis Palmas said that ``with any decisions referred to the Court of Justice of the European Communities, we usually have good results,`` adding that ``any further comment would be risky`` at this point as the case is still pending.

    ``We should wait. We will see the decision of the Court before we comment any further. What I can say is that with any decisions referred to the Court of Justice of the European Communities, we usually have good results,`` he added.

    Palmas pointed out that he could not elaborate since a case was pending before the Court and ``we are not in a position to comment on matters concerning a judicial procedure.``

    He also noted that ``much time will pass before a decision is issued.``

    [02] BRITAIN - ORAMS CASE

    Britain`s Court of Appeal, under Lord Phillips, Lord Chief Justice, has concluded a hearing in a property case involving a Greek Cypriot refugee and a British couple, and said it will take the final decision on points of substance it will refer to the Court of Justice of the European Communities for consideration.

    The Court of Appeal will decide on the final form of the text to be referred to the Court of Justice without any further meeting.

    [03] PALMAS - TURKEY - EU

    Cypriot Government Spokesman Vassilis Palmas said on Tuesday that, depending on the circumstances, the government decides which line to follow, that is whether it will block or pass any chapter regarding Turkey`s EU accession course.

    Asked which stance Cyprus will maintain in Brussels regarding the opening of negotiating chapters in Turkey`s EU bid, Palmas noted that ``the positions of the government are well-known regarding Turkey`s application to join the EU.``

    [04] CABINET - COOPERATION FUND

    The Cyprus Council of Ministers decided on Tuesday to set up a Cooperation Fund between Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot non governmental organisations.

    Announcing the decision, Government Spokesman Vassilis Palmas said the Fund aims at strengthening civil society and developing and organising better their activities on a modern basis.

    The Fund also aims at enhancing bonds, cooperation and social cohesion between Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot non governmental organisations, Palmas added.
