[01] Cyprus denounces Turkish Cypriot journalists' "conviction"

The Permanent Representative of Cyprus to the Office of the United Nations in Geneva Ambassador Alexandros Vikis, sent, on 16 August, a letter to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Mrs. Mary Robinson, and to the President of the UN Human Rights Committee, in which he denounced the recent "conviction" of Turkish Cypriot journalists Sener Levent and Memduh Ener by the illegal regime in the Turkish occupied part of Cyprus.

In his letter, which will circulate as an official document of the Human Rights Committee, the Ambassador points out that the conviction of Levent and Ener is an attempt of the pseudostate to prevent the freedom of the press and the freedom of expression. Furthermore, Ambassador Vikis requests the intervention of both the High Commissioner and the President of the UN Human Rights Committee for the release of the two journalists.

[02] House President expresses sympathy to flooded countries

The President of the House of Representatives Mr Demetris Christofias sent yesterday separate letters of solidarity to the presidents of the parliaments of Russia, Germany, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia and Austria, parts of which have been flooded as a result of the calamity that has befallen them.

In his letters, the House President expresses, on behalf of all the Members of the House of Representatives as well as the people of Cyprus, "deep condolences to the families of the victims, as well as sincere sympathy to all those who are suffering as a result of this unspeakable disaster".
