Chapter Summary

On 10 May 2001 the European Court of Human Rights delivered a historic judgment in which it found Turkey responsible for committing grave and continuing violations in Cyprus of a number of human rights guaranteed by the European Convention on Human Rights. Apart from the fact that it deals with a wide spectrum of violations of rare gravity resulting from the military occupation of the territory of one of the High Contracting Parties to the Convention by another High Contracting Party, the judgment decides certain important legal questions in the sphere of international law and of human rights in particular. The Court has, for the first time, pronounced on the overall legal consequences of Turkey?s invasion and continued military presence in Cyprus.
