    [01] British EuroMP - Cook - Abduction

    Nicosia, Jan 3 (CNA) -- A British EuroMP has appealed to Britain's Foreign Secretary Robin Cook to take "the strongest action" and demand that the Turkish government secures the release of a Greek Cypriot abducted by the Turks from a British sovereign territory in Cyprus and held illegally in a prison in the Turkish-occupied part of Cyprus since December 13, 2000.

    In a letter to Cook, Theresa Villiers MEP, says Panikos Tziakourmas was abducted by "representatives of security authorities" in the Turkish- occupied part of Cyprus. The abduction took place on British sovereign territory. "This matter is therefore your responsibility as Secretary of State," says Villiers in her letter to Cook.

    [04] Cyprus - UNHCHR - Abducted Greek Cypriot

    Nicosia, Jan 3 (CNA) -- The case of an abducted Greek Cypriot, now illegally detained in Cyprus' Turkish-occupied areas, has been brought to the attention of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Mary Robinson, with an appeal to act for the speedy and unconditional release of Panicos Tziakourmas.

    Cyprus' Permanent Representative to the UN in Geneva, Ambassados Alexandros Vikis, has sent a letter to Robinson informing her of the events surrounding Tziakourmas' abduction and asking her to intervene personally "in reinforcing the efforts of the UN Secretary-General for achieving the speedy and unconditional release of Mr. Tziakourmas."
