Decision date: 01/03/10
Eight Greek-Cypriot applicants claimed that since 1974 they had been deprived of their property rights because of the occupation of Northern Cyprus by Turkish military forces. Following the pilot judgment case of Xenides-Arestis v Turkey (No. 46347/99) 14/3/05, the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus enacted new compensation legislation in 2005 to examine Greek-Cypriot property claims by the Immovable Property Commission (IPC).
