    Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot working groups and technical committees set up to deal with various aspects of the Cyprus problem began their work on Tuesday.

    Presidential Commissioner George Iacovou told CNA that everything went well. This was the first meeting for all the committees and groups. The impression is that things will go on rather quickly, Iacovou noted, adding that (the committees and groups) began to discuss the issues, reviewed them and expressed their positions. He also said that United Nations representatives are present in all meetings of the working groups and technical committees.

    Iacovou also said that the technical committees and working groups will meet again on Thursday and after that on April 29, after the Orthodox Easter, 27April.

    Asked if all technical committees and working groups will convene on the same days, Iacovou said that they themselves will determine their course.

    The thirteen working groups and technical committees meet at the United Nations Protected Area in the capital Nicosia.

    [02] ECHR - TURKEY - DEMADES

    The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) ordered Turkey on Tuesday to pay within three months 835,000 euros to Greek Cypriot refugee Ioannis Demades for the loss of use of his property in the northern coastal town of Kyrenia, occupied by Turkish troops since the Turkish invasion in 1974.

    The Fourth Section of the ECHR ordered Turkey to pay the applicant in the case Demades vs Turkey within three months from now the following comprehensive sums: 785.000 euro in respect of pecuniary damage, 45.000 in respect of non pecuniary damage and 5.000 in respect of costs and expenses.

    The Court recalled that in its principle judgment it found Turkey guilty of continuous violations of the European Convention of Human Rights by reason of complete denial of the rights of the applicant with respect to his home and the peaceful enjoyment of his property in Kyrenia.

    [03] EUROPARL - TURKEY - REPORT

    European Parliament committee has called on Turkey to help find a negotiated settlement in Cyprus and use the current window of opportunity to this effect.

    The Committee has also warned Ankara that non-fulfillment of its commitments to the European Union will continue to seriously affect the process of accession negotiations.

    The Committee on Foreign Affairs approved on Monday by 53 votes in favour, two against and four abstentions a report on Turkey by Dutch Euro MP, rapporteur Ria Oomen-Ruijten.

    The report said that Turkish occupation troops must withdraw from Cyprus to facilitate the negotiation of a political settlement that will reunite the country, divided since the 1974 Turkish invasion.
