Chapter Summary

On 1 May 2004, the Accession Treaty entered into force after having been ratified by the fifteen old Member States and the ten new ones, including Cyprus. Under the Accession Treaty Cyprus received the right to take part in the internal market and European Union (EU) policies. On 8 November 2005, the Supreme Court had to decide about the transferal of a Cypriot national, suspected of tax evasion in the United Kingdom, under the procedures foreseen in the EU arrest warrant. Article 2 of Protocol 10 enabled the Council to lay down a special regime for the green line. On that basis the Council adopted on 29 April 2004 the relevant "Green Line Regulation". The EU Member State Cyprus will have to treat the acquis communautaire as a supreme source of law in its internal legal order.
