    Cyprus Ambassador denounces "conviction" of T/C journalists

    Nicosia, Aug 20 (CNA) -- Cyprus' Permanent Representative to the UN in Geneva, Ambassador Alexandros Vikis, has sent a letter to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Mary Robinson and to the President of the UN Human Rights Committee, denouncing the recent "conviction" of two Turkish Cypriot journalists by the illegal regime in Cyprus northern territories, occupied by Turkey since 1974.

    In his letter, that will circulate as an official document of the Human Rights Committee, Vikis said that the "conviction" of Sener Levent, Editor in Chief of the Turkish Cypriot daily Afrika (formerly Avrupa) and Memduh Ener, editor of the same paper was aiming to muzzle the freedoms of press and expression in the Turkish Cypriot community.
